Springfield Armory’s M1A has won countless National Matches, and even has its own match named after it at Camp Perry. The highly accurate .308 Win-chambered models are popular not only with competitive shooters, but also snipers, hunters and other rifle enthusiasts. Now, Springfield has announced the M1A is available in 6.5 Creedmoor.
