Bent op rods can result from firing heavy commercial loads in your garand. Commercial loads greater than 175 grain bullets should be avoided.There is a risk of damaging the op rod if you run commercial loads. The pressure curve isn't the same. In order to run those, you would have to get an adjustable gas plug. Pretty easy fix. I hand load for everything, so I just load milspec rounds. I do have an adjustable plug if I want to load something hotter.
Nice rifles Bill! Hope you enjoy shooting them as much as I enjoy shooting mine. I got me a nice doe this past deer season from 230 yds with my tractor rifle.
Nice feature article about IHC garlands in the current American Rifleman magazine.
I play it safe and either shoot surplus stuff or the new commercial M1 Garand specific ammo made my American Eagle(Federal) and PPU and Hornady.
I choose not to support CTD as they will not ship to CA even on items that are legal to have shipped here. They will not bother with it, so I don't bother with them!!Resurrecting an old thread... Where is the best place to buy ammo these days?
Anyone bought here and/or used this ammo?

I rarely buy ammo as I have a terminal case of reloader-itis... but when I do need to make a purchase, SGAmmo out of Oklahoma is the first place I look...
