    Correction on my previous post a few minutes ago. I'd also like to thank Shortround for passing on the info in the email created by bartbob.

    So, thanks Shortround - for responding!

    best regards,

    I remember some members of the US Navy Rifle Team shooting M-1's chambered for 7.62X51 at the National Matches at Camp Perry back when I was shooting. I didn't know any of the Navy rifle shooters, but I shot in a lot of pistol matches that Don Hamilton shot in. He won the national matches a couple of times if I remember right and set quite a few records.
