You will probably have to deal with crimped primer, and from there load them after your usual case prep routine.  But, if you really wanted to get max case life get a RCBS Precision Mic and set you dies up to just set the shoulder back enough say about 2 to 3 thousandths.  This will get you brass only for use in that M1A.  But, it will allow you increase the case life.

What would you say is the difference in case life using the precision mic vs. a full length sizing die?  I'm assuming this method would work for a DPMS LR-308?

Thanks RN22723..... the crimped primer is not a problem....  From the sounds of it you must reload for a M1A.  Whats your average case life and what kind of brass are you using??????

Consider the X-Die sizing die, too.  Loading for an M1, you should be able to get 6 or 7 firings with Winchester brass.

You case life will vary, and well i fyou 5 or 6 reloads I would call it good for match ammo, but for blasting ammo well you might stretch it out a bit. I would look to find some heavy duty brass by that I mean LC M118LR or IMI 308 brass.  This will give you some better case lifel.
