    I'm sorry, but why is commerical ammo no good for the Garand? I never heard that before, and I've been shooting commericial ball through my Garand for the last 15 years. Can you expand on this?

    Gee, I have been doing it wrong for over 45 years . It is nice to know that I can no longer run commercial ammo thru my 03A3 bought in 1962.

    Back when I shot it a lot I used 4831. It was CHEAP back then--about 50cents a pound. Any old bullet that I could seat in the case went flying down range just fine. I suspect it would do the same today.

    Wrong

    Reloading for a HIGH NUMBERED 03 or 03A3 if proper reloading instructions are followed or the use of any commerical ( factory) ammo is safe.

    There are some very specific problems when using commerical ammo or reloads in a M! Garand. Such as slam fires due to primer sensitivity. pressure curves of some powders can also damage the weapon

    Was the original post deleted on this thread?

    I only shoot hand loads through the M1 and the 1903.
