Followup on the M14 problem (primers backing out). A fellow forum member sold me a new forged SAI bolt. The rifle is performing perfectly with the same ammo.

The headspace went from just barely passing a no-go (I think it would fail if you breathed hard on it....) to easily passing with the new bolt.

No more primer back out. With 45gr of world shooters match rifle powder, and a 155gr Nosler CC, in once fired LC cases, OAL 2.820 (mag length essentially), S&B primers, had a 5 shot group measuring 0.78” from a rest at 100 meters using an 8x Leupold scope.

She’s back! Thanks for all the comments. David

I told you that Match Rifle powder was good!
