Ball C2
4831 (H? IMR?)

Couldn't find a copyright date, had to be about 1967. I loaded X-ring ammunition for years out of this manual. As bullets and barrels got better, x-count increased.
as always...sliding back to Garands on the subject...reloading and shooting is more than Garands but old habits die hard ! I love shooting M1's too but I really love shooting 1000 yds with modern rifles that have the legs for that kind of distance...granted some M1 shooters did that in days gone by.
