i use w748 powder, 168 sierra matchking bthp, any large rifle primer works fine, charge weight 47grains, coal is 3.240
this data is directly from hornady 8th edition m1 garand specific loads.
the hornady 8th edition is a pretty good manual i recommend it as its got a LOT of specific to certain types of guns in common caliber loadings. strongly recommend that manual if your into garand shooting. i just load only garand safe loads for 30-06 since they work just fine in my 03A3 no need to have cartridges that arent going to work in both.
