Backwoodsblacksmith Posted November 23, 2014 Report Share Posted November 23, 2014 I grew up with an 03 and shot Garand M1 and M14's in the Corp. I shoot mostly bolt guns but also old single shots and muzzle-loaders. Reading some of the forums and the loading information I notice that a lot of shooter are using 168 gr and heavier bullets. Using these heavier bullets in the M1 and M14 result in their early loss of accuracy. Is this not the case with the AR type 308? I hate the AR 15 and the M1A SOCOM does not fill my accuracy requirement. I do, however like the Ar 308. I will get a DPMS with a 16 or 18 in bbl. I will probably stick with 150 gr bullets and a load that will break 2700 fps. But what is the deal with the heavier bullets? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
