Boy, not one single statement above is true. No Garand expert here for sure. Know your facts before making blanket irresponsible statements like those.

The Remingtons are marginally fine but may eventually affect the longetivity of your rifle with extended use. The powder used is slower than recommended for Garand use. An equivalent to IMR/H4350.

Note: Velocity has nothing to do with whether ammo is or is not appropriate. Powder burn rate and the pressure pulse produced to the unregulated gas system does.
