Default 165 gr Sierra Spitzer Boat Tails

I was given two 100 round boxes of Sierra 165gr. Spitzer Boat Tail bullets, 30 Cal. Are these okay for reloading for the M1 Garand?
What would you recommend as to powder, load, etc. using spent HXP brass?
I have been reloading 38 Special and 45ACP for a few years now, several thousand rounds, but these would be my first rifle rounds.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Merry Christmas!

Full length resize the HXP cases, trim if needed, any primer seated below flush, 46grs VarGet. OAL approx 3.28", no crimp. This load will be close to the Hornady 168AMAX Garand load. Good Shooting........
