Just to help the search engines and save any new reloaders that didn't catch the initial context of the thread.

SR4759 is a pistol powder. For this type of round you're looking at less then 11 grains.




This type of load is danger prone. If you make a mistake and drop a normal charge of this you will blow up your Garand and whoever is holding it.

The reloader must be diligent to the extreme when working these type of loads.
