Sorry Durango, I'm that Black Sheep Sailor in the family. Army hasn't won in what 5 years? Oh lets double that, 10 years? Still not enough you say, Okay how about 15 Years?

Now that's funny ! :lol:............:lol:................:lol:............COSteve, I was in the NAVY, they don't even let us play with rifles. Full disclosure? I did win the Basic USMC Shooting Contest at their Course. I did cheat, I got to use their Rifles. Once I got to the Fleet they took away the Bang Sticks and Made Me use an Old Knife. I didn't get to play with Rifles again until We got to the Edge of the Mangroves. After that Uncle Sam Figured I'd be Okay with a Souped Up Model of the M-14. If I could only have been a Marine they would have let me be an 8541, but the Navy would hear of no such thing, so they made me Swim as penance! :lol:
I dunno know about a direct comparison of .30/06 vs .308 in an M1.I looked through this article and it states that .308 M-1s are much more accurate than the .30-06 version.
See your still instigating with hearsay. But H2O MAN can give you the factual low down on the crazy-horse M14 modifications. But I thought this was the M1 Garand forum?Interesting, I thought the M1As they were shipping over to the Sand Box were doing a good job for their assigned roles and that's why the troops who used them considered them superior to the M16 and M4.
The troops I've talked to who were there and shot them told me that they wouldn't trade their 7.62x51 for a 5.56 for any mission, and these weren't snipers, just designated marksmen in a rifle company. They were the ones in harm's way depending upon them to keep safe, but heck, I guess nac82xx knows better . . . . . . . . . .
