The M1 Garand section in the Hornady 9th ed does not list H414 for any weight of bullet. It does list 2 Vihtavouri powders that bracket H414 in the burn rate chart.

Viht N-140 and N-150 are listed for 168 and 178 grain bullets but not 150-155.

I fired a few of my hand loads in a Century Arms receivered M1 many years ago, and the op rod came out of the track about three times out of ten. This rifle worked fine with Greek HXP. My hand load was 56 grains of H414 and a 165 grain bullet. This round shoots well in my bolt action deer rifle, but I would not use that powder in any of my M1's.
