So I'm looking for an M1A. I've talked about getting one for a while, so I figured I'd grow a set and go for it. Only issue is I don't know which one to get.
I'd like to have the ability to reach out to 800yds (in due time, prolly not possible w/ current skill level), and I'm not sure which model would be suitable for the feat. I'm ruling out the Socom/Socom II due to 16" barrel. Scout Squad is questionable w/ an 18" barrel. So I'm thinking Loaded or possibly a National Match. I'd also like to be able to mount a scope on it. Any ideas? Used is an option if I can find one as well.
I'd get a Remington 700, but I want semi-auto, and I've had an itch for a Springfield M1A for too damn long to not be scratched.
