    I have a cherry Inland M1 Carbine that I reload for. I have always used the
    .308, 110 gr. RN carbine bullets in it and they work pretty well as the pictured target @100 yrds. off the bench shows. But being as I am most always looking for a slight more of an edge when shooting with my friends for bragging rights I was wondering. I see several manufactures make .308, 110 gr. bullets with spire point type nose, specifically the Hornady A-Max. So my question is, does anyone have any experience trying this combo in a M1 carbine and if so what were the results? The goal is to see if I can get this thing to shoot simular groups at 200 yrds.
