My Mosin is actually pretty darn accurate. I can reliably peg a 12x12 piece of plate steel at 225 yards, and a 12x24 piece at 300 yards. Extrapolating that out, I am fairly sure that I could not only hit the broad side of a barn at 1km, but quite probably the narrow side too.

It would appear most of us would chose a rifle like the m14, m1a, hk, m1 grand or ak47if this was a survey. I personally don`t care for the HK or CETME because the cocking handle is on the left side near the end of the barrel. Some of the HK`s have a fluted chamber which makes the brass one shot if it is a boxer primmer. The HK is reliable but the Spanich CETME has a aftermarket receiver which I don`t care for in addition to the lower chamber pressure. Some of the members may disagree with me RE; "the chamber pressure" but I am not the one pulling the trigger.

Artillery positions during WW1 for one thing.

Hey, I'm seriously looking at an Polytech M305, basically an M14 clone. They're super cheap in Canada, although i hear they need a bit of work to get out some of the commie parts. My main concern that I've come across that I am not sure about is the ammunition...
They M305 says its chambered for .308, but I hear some people saying that its supposed to be 7.62*51 (which is NOT the same despite the dimensions). Anyone know if the Chinese chambered it wrongly or if .308 really does work as intended. I'd rather not find out with it blowing up in my face! My only other thought was since the head springs are one of those cruddy parts that that might be why people are thinking that it should be the other ammo.

Anyone with experience? I'd love to hear it. Overall I feel that an m14 or type of is the best battle rifle.

Current crop of M305's are excellent. No need to worry about them. Stay with .308 under 180 grain and you are fine. Best to use 150 or 168. 7.62x51 is also GTG.

You will love the M305. Get a set of Superior Shooting Systems chrome silicon springs.

Our brothers to the north are lucky if ya ask me. I have a few Norinco M14S rifles, and 1 Polytech that were imported to the states yrs ago.

Chrome lined 22in bbls ( 1/12in twist rate, so it is optimum for the 144-168gr range of bullets)
forged receiver, along with 1 piece op-rod
With the exception of the stock, they are a good rifle from my experiences with them here.

To answer your question, it is safe to use either. ( Mine also have 308 stamped on the bbl btw)


Other than the stock, and fh, this one is all OEM parts, and I have used 7.62x51mm, and 308 through it since the early 90's

Who knows......maybe one of these days, our gov will let these rifles be imported to the states again.

I owned an M1A, late 1970's to early 1980's, loved it but it was much spendier than the MIni 14's I've owned to shoot. The 7.62 Nato/.308 Win. is a great all around caliber for hunting and for a battle rifle. On the other hand it is considerably heavier than a Mini 14, many years ago I killed a large buck at 100 yards with a shot right between the eyes with a Mini 14 and when I grabbed the horns to drag it down the hill the whole skull was mush. What suprised me was just how accurate the factory peep sites were. My guess is that a patient shooter could do a lot of damage with the 5.56/.223 round, on the other hand if one just tries to hose down the bad guys burning 20-30 rounds, depending on magazine capacity, one might not hit much of anything.
