30.06 load

Got my hands on a M1 Garand and I could use a little help starting on a good load. Bullets, powders, etc. I was told that Garands do not like the heavier bullets. Is this true?

I have never reloaded this caliber before so any help is appreciated.

Please and Thank you,

Ryan

Re: 30.06 load

Use a 165g Bullet, It'll shoot any of them but a Spitzer Boattail will be best. IMR 4895 is actually the powder used in the Garand Ammo and is what the System was designed around (if I recall correctly). Hope this helps.

I have a lot of 168g Hornady HPBT match bullets and some IMR 4895 so that is where I will start.

Thanks

Go to "master poe's temple" web site and click on m1 load data (from the NRA) and READ the articles there and also from FULTON ARMORY . M1's are fun to shoot, but have a few little quirks you should be aware of.
