Can M1 ammo be used in a civilian 30-06?
 
Hey Guys,

Newbie here. I have an M1 Garand and was wondering if the ammo I buy from the CMP can be used in a civilian 30-06. Like in a lever action rifle?

I'm aware of the issues on using civilian ammo in the M1, but is the reverse true?

Thanks !!!

Shoot away It will work in anything of proper caliber.

I know levers come in 30-30, but didn't know they come in 30-06?

Correct on the 1895, and Browning's BLR is chambered for 30-06 and other long-action calibers.

If a lever action with tube feed magazine DO NOT use pointed bullets in it, otherwise you should be fine.
