    Springfield M1A Scout/Squad- 25-400 yards with South African ball ammo. I am about out of the SA though and the ammo monster is threatening to take all my lunch money.

    Cool rifle, more of a fun toy though. The army, in its infinite wisdom still insists I use AR platforms.

    So between these factors it spends a lot of time in the safe.

    Forgot to answer some of the other questions in the OP.

    Reliable? Absolutely.

    How far do I typically shoot? That depends. If I'm hunting, however far the game is from me. With iron sights, I feel comfortable in taking a shot from standing out to 200 yards. Usually, I can get within 100 yards of my target, though. For target practice, I usually shoot from 100 to 300 yards. Same for competition shooting, which I haven't shot in a while. I've shot out 600 yards in a few matches, but I wouldn't call that typical for me. The longest I've shot was probably about 1,000 yards, but I'm guestimating.

    I buy bulk ammo from whoever has it cheapest at the time. I've found Wideners, Outdoor Marksman and Miwall to be good sources. Since I stocked up on several thousand rounds just as ammo surplus ammo prices started to increase as a result of the wars overseas, I haven't bought any in a while. Last time I did a bulk purchase (DAG German surplus) the prices had already started to increase and I think I paid around $0.25 a round for 2K rounds including shipping.

    No M-14(Marine) yet. I have severval other rifles in >308. My AR-10 by Armalite is seeing a lot of usage. Like Tea anywhere from 25 to 500 yards either kneeling or supported( tree, big rock or Bogstick. I use Ammoman. com for bulk practice ammo. Handload my hunting rounds with the new Barnes tipped tripleshocks 150grs. Ammoman is one price which includes S & H. They carry the majors and surplus Mil. also. Joe

    Uncle Sam's Misguided Children led the way in keeping the M-14 up to date in the '90s and re-introducing it in Afghanistan and Iraq.

    If you can afford to spend a bit more, you may want to check out what LRB has to offer or even getting a receive from them and sending it off to someone like Ted Brown to build you up a custom rifle to your specs. If I had it to do over, I'd probably have gone with the latter option, but when I bought my M1A, Springfield and Armscorp were the only games in town.
