Those Palma shooters are hard-core, no doubt.NIce vid.
Keep in mind the M1A has been shooting out to 1,000 yds for the last 60 yrs in DCM/CMP Service Rifle competitions just with standard open sights, stock, and use of a sling.
The author should try it that way also, with a National/Super Match M1A for comparison.
I saw my first bullet in flight spotting at a Palma match; I saw the little dot/vortex in the scope, looked at a buddy who just winked and said “Yep; that’s exactly what you think it was...”.I've shot my Garands out to 1,000, and it's interesting to see the mirages of the bullets dive towards the target through a spotting scope when the conditions are right.
Mike - Can you tell me what spotting scope was being used in this video? Thanks.Hello all, here is today's article posted on TheArmoryLife.com. It is titled Taking the M1A to 1,000 Yards and can be found at https://www.thearmorylife.com/taking-the-m1a-to-1000-yards/.
