Re: Garand ammo
After many many rounds of modern ammo in the two that I have, I'd have to give an affirmative Yes, you can. As with any newly aquired gun, I'd break it down and give it a thourough inspection and cleaning. Once you fire the ammo that you bought with it, you'll have plenty of brass to reload too!! After the reading the posted comments above, Thats good info to know. I'm still sitting on plenty of "newer" mil surplus, so I've never had to deal with this issue. I have some handloads worked up and I did have a few issues with cycling that I had to work out, but it didn't take many tries to find a good accurate load. I've had no issues with any guide rod damage, but I will pay some extra attention to it.
