Hornady's 7th Edition of their reloading manual lists a number of powders and loads for the Garand. I would get a copy of it.
what powder were you using ?I've used IMR 4895 for the M1 since 1986 & for my Sako 06 w/o any of the conditions you listed.

If it's the March '86 AR article "Reloading for the M1 Rifle" by John R. Clarke you're looking for you can find it on page 2 -->LavaTech's shared MediaFire eBooks folder
