Anyone know where I can get some M2 surplus ammo at a reasonable price. Every thing I've seen they want anywhere from $.80 to over a dollar around. Not paying that when I can load it for $.35 per round.

I can bring you some HXP if you just need some milsurp M2 to chrono. I’ve never fooled with checking my hand loads velocity since the accuracy was so good at the 200yds and less I shoot.

I've only used Federal 210m primers, and IMR4895 as I believe that is what the powder was designed for ( usage in the Garand)

My best loads were 48gr of powder with a 150gr FMJ bullet or 46.5 gr with 168 gr bullet

I like to buy maybe 10 or so rounds...or trade you for something else.

Everyone seems to be using IMR 4895. Anyone use H4895, I've got LOTS of that.

H4895 if fine. I used it some. The IMR was just more common. I’ve since switched to IMR4064 in the Garand. It just seemed to be a little easier to measure and burned a little cleaner with similar accuracy.

IMR4350 in the 1903s and 1917
