But don’t they have too much “jump”?

Doesn't matter on my rifles, just trying to keep from overworking brass
Thanks for the advice. Overworking the brass is exactly what I'm trying to avoid.

I do a light full length size that chambers in my tightest M1 and shoot matches with like headstamps, unless I have an odd # for some reason, then I just shoot the odd headstamp brass in offhand. I've found my best accuracy gain was with consistent powder charge (IMR or H4895) and a 155gr match bullet. Use good reloading practices and the old girl will put them in the 10 ring on an SR target. ; )

What is the deal with the 110gr 30 carbine bullets in the M1?

I like to use 110gr carbine bullets with a smaller charge of faster burning powder for some kinds of practice, such as snap shooting and the like. Doesn't cycle the action so I don't lose the brass in the woods. Also good for the smaller varmints that show up sometimes.

For bench-rest shooting, there might be some gain with segregating more consistent brass. Once you lift the rifle off the bench it's all wasted. I full-length resize for safety sake (got some almost unlocked slam fires when insufficiently sized) and use surplus 147grFMJBT bullets with WW748 at around 7500fps. Few people can do better than 4 inch groups at 100 yards from "field" positions, except from prone and maybe sitting. Many can't even stay on the paper from standing.

Anyway, the average Garand is not a minute of angle rifle. I believe 4 inches at 100 yards was acceptable accuracy for inspected/reworked rifles.

Not the 110gr round nose carbine bullet

Use Hornady Bullets 30 Caliber (308 Diameter) 110 Grain Spire Point (or similar)

https://www.midwayusa.com/product/10...int-box-of-100 (bad example, when on sale)

Very accurate, cheap and less recoil for competition
