Gun Blobber, a new gun blogger, has posted videos of an M1A firing in slow motion

Wow. Some guy has been at work with a high-speed camera and a couple of M1A’s. He was looking to settle a dispute as to whether the action starts cycling before or after the bullet has exited the barrel:

    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?
