    Thoughts on the M1a1 vs the AR10?

    AR10t match barrel supposedly is very accurate but how will it stand up to the match grade m1a1?

    One consideration is that the ar10 can easily change upper receiver from a match grade to battle barrel.

    Also ar10 is offered in different calibers; 243,300wsm and soon 7mm mag.

    I have a M1A bush rifle that shoots about 3in grps @100 .Standard configuration with 18 in bbl. Also have an AR10T 24in heavy SS Lothar-Walther 5r barrel 24 x fixed Leupold BR scope which puts 5 rds in the same hole @100, that is using bags or Harris bipod. Never had a Match M1A so I really can't say how they stack up against one another. Haven't got to shoot the AR at longer ranges yet but I am sure it would be competitive against Any rifle. Just my 2cts worth. PS Still saving for the .243 upper

    300 WSM? I know Accuracy Systems was converting them into this caliber, but are there any being manufactured in it? And by 7mm mag, you mean 7mm WSM or 7mm Rem Mag? 7mm Rem Mag or others based on the same case would be pretty sweet.
