I have a Sightron mounted on a Tactical Savage and have done well in Tactical Matches.  Not winning but always in the middle of the pack.  It isn't the scope.

I wonder how this scope would do on an M-1A?

Well if it's anything like my M1a (which is a 2moa gun) I'd say you will get about a 2moa group. That Savage should be printing under 1moa.  The M1a can with great expense be brought down under 1moa but it's a battle rifle - if you can hit 12 in at 600yds every time that's what it's made for. You find that guns with really tight tollerances jam under battle conditions which is why the AK  works so reliably.

The Savage prints under 1MOA and is my preferred long range rifle.  But my NM should be in the 1/12 inch range with 175 grain Bergers driven by 4064.  You are correct it will not beat the Bolt gun but will give a great account of itself up to 600 meters.  In fact at 6oo meters I fired a 93 with it once last year.  But my HBAR has done a 94.  I possibled the 600 meter line at Ft. Ord (range 1) once in my life and bought dinner that night in Monterery. (Fisherman's Grotto)
