I have a few AR-10s and a couple M1As. My favorite M1A is the scout. Not as short as the SOCOM, but still a handy rifle. I even mounted a 5 inch Thunderbeast suppressor on it and it runs just...

Yes they are legal.

I have seen several of them at 3-gun matches and I even used one for a few years.

In 9x19 they get a little muzzle heavy. In 40 they arent too bad. As long as the gunsmith...

Excellent.

I am guessing STI will replace the mag catch spring with a slightly heavier weight one.

You dont have a mag catch button on there do you?

Yes to both.

The 77 TMKs are a bit more finicky to find a good load for. The 69 TMK needs to be pushed fast to find an accurate load.

Varget and RL-15 are hard to beat.

This is a very common problem for people that dont ride the safety with their right thumb. When I tell people that they are hitting the mag release upon recoil, they insist the gun is broken.

You have to load them long and they dont fit in the magazine anymore.

When I load Sierra 80-95s I use Varget.

Some people like reloading. It is relaxing. Some of them might even shoot just so they can get back to reloading.

FMJ/RN for plinking.

Barnes TXS for medium skinned critters.

The stamping die looks like it was made in some back alley in Pakistan.

I hoped Browning was better than that.

Not as much as you would think.

I load all my long range ammo (600-2200 yards) from 223 Ackley to 338 Lapua on a Dillon 550. I use a prometheus and fx-120 as powder scale/dispensers.

1050 or 1100 all the way.

1050s come set up with dies and everything it takes to start loading.

The 650/750 considers all that stuff a-la-carte.

And yes. I practice what I preach.
