Editors’ Picks 2018: Springfield M1A Loaded 6.5 Creedmoor

Springfield Armory has been making the M1A, the semi-automatic-only successor to the M14, since 1974. For years, the .308 Win. M1A, especially in its National Match configuration, ruled the 1,000-yd. line at Camp Perry. Not that anyone needs a reason to want an M1A, but chambering it in 6.5 mm Creedmoor? Oh, yeah. The company announced three variations in the popular chambering. The M1A Loaded 6.5 Creedmoor is offered with a choice of a solid black composite stock, or a precision-adjustable stock in black or FDE. It features a National Match Grade, stainless steel, 22" medium-weight barrel with four-groove, 1:8", right-hand twist rifling and a muzzle brake. A NM 0.062" post front sight is paired with a NM non-hooded 0.052" aperture rear sight, an arrangement ideal for distant targets and capable of half-m.o.a. windage adjustments and 1-m.o.a. elevation shifts. The two-stage National Match trigger is tuned for a 4-lb., 8-oz. to 5-lb. pull. springfield-armory.com
