Shoot yeah thats M2 ball and it should be in LC brass. Great stuff for feeding M1 Garands or 03 springfields.

Got anymore you wanna get rid of? I need to buy about a case of that stuff.. :)

Yep. Its actually the slow powders that are normally found in modern .30-06 ammo. The garand was designed for medium speed propellants, IMR4895 to be exact. M2 ball duplicates are 150 gr FMJ over 50 gr IMR4895. I use 155 gr Amaxes over 48 gr VARGET. same velocity, better ballistics. 200 yds is easy with the Garand sights and good ammo.
