I think I am also about finished with my 30.06 testing also. Been trying to work up a load for one of my Garands for sometime now without much success. I have tried about every load in the books for a 147 and 150 grain FMJ bullet with the best results being 47gr of Varget. This load was giving me 5"-6" inch groups at 200yrds

Decided to go for a heavier bullet and picked-up some 168gr Sierra Match King. Using Remington brass, CC#34 primers, and 46gr of IMR4895. Went to the range this afternoon and shot with Dan Borders. These loads were alot more encouraging ...



Of course, this is off a rest using iron sights at 200yrds .. Going to load a few more tonight and see if I can not tight'em up a little better. I think I am on the right track ... You really got to love them old Garands!!

Heck Captain...... You just load any old ammo in the Garand, align the sights and pull the trigger. More hits will be in the black if you do your part.............................

I have fired tens of thousands of reloads in several Garand Rifles. My favorite loads are

150 gr bullet with 48 gr IMR 4895 and a Winchester primer

168 gr Sierra MK with 46 gr IMR 4895 and a Winchester primer

Never hasd a malfunction due to the loads.
