    I am trying to learn as much as I can about tactical scopes for my M1A Springfield. It is so easy to find tons of articles, etc., regarding the M16/AR-15 model rifles, but finding good input regarding the M14/M1A rifle is much more scarce.

    Can you help me find more to read about optics that would be best for mid-range tactical use of the M1A?
