  • Anyone else work with sub moa M14s?

    After many years of working at it, I now have 2 sub moa rifles in the M14 herd.
    1 is a LRB M-25 with a heavy Kreiger ss barrel and the other is a recent Bula Defense XM21 build using all their parts including the Bula Defense med weight NM barrel.
    It has taken a long time and a lot of testing, but I think I have the key now.

      I hear you . After shooting these animals for over 50 years and owning a couple of dozen M14s, these are the only two I have that I can truthfully say are sub min. Amazing how much the heart beat can move things around in the prone position.

        Getting the Winter brass prep started early. Looks like about 5k to get ready over the next period of time. Way less than previous years. Getting old is not for sissies.

          I also have my M1A NM from 1974 and I love it. It was built by a old boy down in Georgia and it's old school.

            Glad to see there is someone on the forum that will talk something other than politics.
            I shoot with a couple of gents that have NM M1As and they do a darn good job.
            Are you a hand loader?

              Yes, I been reloading from the early 70's. For my M1A, I use 155 grains pill and a 168 match. I still use IMR 4895 for the burn. I don't do matches any more. It's to hard on my old broken 71 year old body. I do go and shoot in the sandbox. I do lots of long range shooting with my bolt guns. We do 1,000 yards on out to one mile. The best I did at the mile was little under 1 1/2 MOA. My Son beat me with just under MOA. Now I have to shoot from a table, I'm a wimp.

                Shooting from a table is fine, as long as you are still shooting. Shooting at all is not for wimps.
                Most of my shooting is prone supported. I am always getting kidded about taking my naps between shots.
