Which is inherently more accurate? Not trying to start a flame war, or a which is better war, but if both rifles were in a vise, which would hold the tighter group? We can go off topic from there, debating the pros and cons of each. This is because I'm curious about both, not looking to buy either one anytime real soon (I would like to have both eventually, but as many of you know, money isn't a commodity I have much of) This is also because I would like to see a good clean discussion on a one or the other type of rifle thread. I'll go first, and maybe kill the thread before it starts, I think the AR10 may beat the M1A in inherent accuracy. I would say lets keep it to Armalite and Springfield, but go ahead and debate different makes, why the hell not?
