Getting ready for my next sniper build, SA M1A

Picked up a very nice mid 80's SA M1A with all USGI parts for a future M21 sniper build. Hoping to get some range time with it this coming weekend.

Re: A new Range toy, BYF44 HT sniper

Well after some range time with some 8mm surplus I finally got some time with some good ammo. Shot some 200gr PPU FMJBT Match ammo and some PPU brass loaded by a buddy of mine. My HT doesn't seem to like the PPU match ammo, but loves Andy's hand loads. -717055039_20200911_174744_3668521_resized.jpg ...
