Creedmoor Sports sells Open Tip Boat Tail 30-06 ammo for the Garand that is setting the standard for match ammo.

Go to their site and check it out.

Schuster makes a high volume gas plug (essentially the same as Garand Gear) that *I think* allows you to fix a bayonet ... and is also a little bit cheaper too.

Default Non FMJ ammo for Garand

I got the Schuster adjustable gas plug, and bought some 150gr Monarch (PPU) SP. I can buy that ammo off the shelf and it's pretty cheap (well, cheap for 30-06). The numbers on it look good for the Garand. I could likely run it without the Schuster plug, but I'm going to put it in there to be safe.

Curious as to the makers of your Monarch ammo, they seem to sell from different sources? Corrected.

You will like the schuster. It's easy to use, just follow the directions. Some say you can dial in the ejection too, although I haven't been able to do that. It does make mine more consistent about where the emptys end up.

good luck!

My point on the PPU 150 PSP is that it is rated at 2900 fps. it would seem a little hot for an M-1 Garand and it does not state on the box that it is M-1 Garand Safe. Get either a non-adjustable gas plug or an adjustable gas plug while firing this ammo to be safe. To just say it seems okay does not make any sense.

I wasn't planning to run it without the Schuster, but I was told I could. That person may have been wrong, but I wasn't going to risk it since I didn't check it myself.

My apologies on my post, it wasn't directed at you. I should have worded it differently. What I meant to say was that folks in general say a lot of things, especially about ammunition that may or may not be true.

My wording may make someone else think that the PPU is safe, so it's definitely worth you pointing it out.
