Exclamation FNM .30-06 150 Gr FMJ OK In A Garand?

I have a few boxes of FNM .30-06 150 Grain FMJ from several years ago and an M1. Is this stuff safe to shoot?

Thanks,
Eli

It's PORTUGUESE surplus. I don't know about their 30-06, but their .308 is some of the most accurate military ball that I've ever shot. If its new enough to not be corrosive, it should be fine.

Is it in the light blue box with clouds? I shot a 500 rd case of it in early 2000 through my Garands when it first hit the country. The bullets are gilding metal and do not attract a magnet, and it runs on the higher end of velocity like the HXP. I found it to be very accurate and I still have some of the cases handloaded for their next go round with my M1s. It was not packaged as, nor did it look to be surplus military ammuntition, rather a commercial venture with boxer primed cases.

That's the stuff! I found 3 boxes that I bought for less than $7.00/box, and the only other '06 I have is some unknown reloads.
Thanks y'all!
