Why? Well, note this discussion....



If you want to use an adjustable gas port plug. Well, it's also your call.

*also note what was said about power burn rate.

Aloha, Mark
Well, it’s my plan to only purchase commercially produced ammo that’s advertised as “M1” or “Garand” ��

I have been using the USGI National Match M-72 in both my Garand's. The bullets are 173 grain and are listed at 2640 fps. I agree with RVN 69-70 That the CMP would not sell ammo that could damage your rifle.
