What kind of scope do you guys recommend for my M1A Military Match? I would like to be able to poke out to 1000yds if I ever get the chance.

 

Thanks, Chris

Any quality scope would be a fine additiona to your rifle. You didnt say what your budget was. I currently use Unertl & Leupold on a variety of bolt guns. I havent owned one yet but the 10X SS from SWFA is a great scope at an unbelievable price. I had the chance a while back to shoot with one and did an informal side by side comparison with my one of my 10X MK IV's & honestly there wasnt much difference. Both track about the same, have audiable and felt adjustments, & easy to see and use controls. I was so impressed with the SS that when my FAL and a SA M1A are done (both are still in the build stage) I am going to top both with SS10X's.

 

If you are going to push a 7.62 out to 1000 yds you will need to add 20 moa to the base. And dont forget to check into a quality cheek piece, There is a lot of info on Snipers Hide & Snipers Paradise about the cheek pieces out there. The biggest thing is to find one that is the right height and is comfortable for you.
