I need a good safe recipe for reloading my m1garand. I've read all kinds of info on powders, bullet weights and primers. Imr 4895 with a 168gr bullet and a winchester lr primer best duplicates m78 ball. Any suggestions?
The new Hornady Manual has a section specific to loading the M-1 Garand. Gunnuts information is right on the money. But normal hot factory 30-06 hunting ammunition should not be fired through the Garand. Could cause damage to the operating rod.
