    Just last week I was working on a load for my M1 Garand for the 200 yard matches. For my Garand 46.5 grs. IMR 4064 worked quite well along with Fed. 210 primers.

    48 gr. 3031 with rem 9 1/2 primers worked really good for me

    When Sierra's 168's were first used in competition for the .30-06, 48 to 49 grains of IMR4064 was the popular load for best accuracy. Both in bolt guns as well as the Garand.
