    Got to the range today and zeroed. My M14 shot well before and it shoot very well now. I was shooting off a half filled range bag that wiggled and was getting 3/4 and 1 inch groups with 168 bthp hand loads at 100. Next trip will be to the high power range for some distance. Later tonight or something I will start a new thread about my thoughts.

    DF, I’m going to upgrade to a Sadlak NM guide rod, and switch the crush washer set up to shims. I had good improvements with that on a SOCOM. I just wondered if you were running the Sage crush washer and the standard guide rod.

    I have been running the Sadlak NM guide rod for a long time. Smoothed things out nicely. Pretty sure I have their piston too. I have the crush washer on their now but I have been thinking about the shims too. Not sure yet.

    Roger, thanks. FWIW, I found the crush washer to be loose enough to spin after a couple hundred rounds. That’s why I’m considering a shim pack.

    So I ordered a Socom 16 and am waiting for it to come in. I just decided that its nick name is The Pretty Little Three Oh Hate Machine.

    Which one did you get? I don’t know much about them.

    I got this on sale the other day. Garbage stock and cover that I am going to replace with the Walnut stock and over from my other M14. Its a 16" barrel vs the 22" I have in an EBR stock.

    After I swap the furniture it will look like this: https://www.springfield-armory.com/m...ker-308-rifle/

    Only other thing I will need is a thread adapter and QD mount for a can.
