Ammo for the M1A Standard?
I bought a M1A Standard last year and haven't gotten around to firing it, but I'm curious about the ammo.
I read somewhere to not use soft point ammo (exposed lead) as it could foul the feed ramp.
I've got jacketed hollow point (Winchester 308 150 grain) and nylon tipped (Barnes Vortex 308 150 grain).
On the M14 forum someone posted to not use any but military ammo unless you have the headspace checked.
