Your Garand is chambered for the .30-06, but the .300 Win Mag is derived from the .338 Win Mag and bears almost no lineage to the .30-06. While both cartridges have the same nominal overall length, the .300 Mag is distinguished by the "belt" just above the rim, a longer case length, and a sharper shoulder angle. I sincerely doubt the .300 Mag could even chamber in the Garand, but please don't try it to find out.

    Sorry if I misled you.
    No worry...I would not try it without good info, which is why I come to this forum and ask questions...and thanks for educating me...

    I just recently got the M1 (I know handguns, but I only fired the M-16 for qualification as an enlisted guy...once I was commissioned, I rarely fired anything but the M-9)...

    I'm reading, and trying to learn as much as I can...so pardon me if I ask what appears to be an uneducated question like this one...I'm trying to learn from you "experts"...

    Like gasmitty said; they go from .30-06 to .308 to .300 Win Mag. Seems like they're just going in a circle.
    Cost and a 338 is a little harder on barrels. Is my guess. They still have the 50's.

    "He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
