Re: M1 Garand question
Not any 150 gr ammo will be safe for garand use. Just about all of todays hunting ammo for the .30-06 is loaded with propellants too slow for the M1 gas system, which means high port pressure and bent op rods.
Make sure you purchase ammo for the M1 that says its for the M1. Milspec M2 ball, foreign or domestic, or Federal M1 Garand. That greek M2 ball is fantastic stuff and the HXP cases are on par with LC milsurp..
It takes 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, and 3 for proper trigger squeeze.
The latest caliber or gear is no substitute for experience and skill. Rifles and cartridges don't make hits -- shooters do.

After Monday and Tuesday, even the calendar says WTF!
