Hey guys I've got some great reloading data for all you Garand shooters out there. Allright here we go, first you take a neck sized 30-06 case and fill it to the top with Winchester 296, then stuff a 240 grain sierra matchking down the neck to top it off. What a shooter! Just remember to use it at your own risk!
Nice guy. The load you just described calculates to at least 225,000 psi depending on how much powder woiuld have to be removed to push in the 240 SMK. Regardless it's guranteed to ruin an M1 Garand and most likey cause serious injury to the shooter. I'm sure you think that's a humorous way to show you shouldn't use loads found on the internet, and it is a good reason not to, but there might be someone dumb enough, or more likely not skilled enough in the English language, to use it and kill themselves. I don't consider it the least bit funny.
