Default A lurker signs up.

I have been to the forum over the years for info, but finally signed up tonite.
My wonderful wife bought me a 1955 SA Garand for Christmas and I finally got out to shoot it last Thursday. It was great with my varget reloads but I ended up with a broken firing pin after 40 rounds or so.
This weekend I am taking it out again and am going to wring it out some more.

A little about me. I am from Nebraska and am into cowboy action shooting as well as military firearms of all types. I also have a small holster making hobby/business.

Yes, welcome to the forum..

Seems unusual to have a broken firing pin but as the CMP notes, these are used firearms and you may experience parts broken.

What is your receipe for your reloads with Varget?
