Water works fine to dissolve the corrosive salts in the primers. But if you're anal (like me), you can use a 90/10 mix of water/Ballistol. This is convenient when at the range since after the water...

I've used tons of X-TAC with no issues at all. But then I haven't bought any lately. At least 5.56 ammo is becoming more available, and prices are approaching normal.

If you already have an AK47, I'd get the PTR. It is a totally different platform than your M1A, while the '74' is going to look/feel just like a '47', except with slightly less recoil.
