Default New from Vermont

I am a retired military Vet, new to M1 Garand and new to forum. I am from VT. I am interested in the M1, reloading for the M1... and anything relating to M1. I have a 1953 SA, 1943 made, mostly seems period correct except for HRA barrel made in 50s. I want to learn from the knowledge of you guys...and gals, about my Garand and reloading. Little commercially available here for ammo, components, etc. I would love to find reasonably priced Hornady Book. A rare book in VT 😁.

Welcome brother. I'm in VT also (up in Fletcher). I have a 52 SA M1. I've been trying to find reloading stuff here and its a no go. I want to do the same and reload some M2 ball. Don't know where your at in VT maybe our paths will cross.

Hey Buckholler, good to hear a fellow Garander is in the area. I know Fletcher area, and go up to Fairfax Guns every once in awhile. He is a great guy there. Yah, we have slim pickings when it comes to reloading stuff . I was fortunate that May brother-in-law from CA mailed me a used set of his small base RCBS dies he had. Then I scoured through Powderhorn and found Hornady 125 gr HP bullets. A friend gave me used brass and I have a few powder options. Things have gradually come together. I am looking for a used (or new) Hornady reload manual. Joined here to learn and pick up some technical knowledge.

I live about maybe 10 mins or less from Fairfax Guns. He's worked on my son's 30-30. Good guy.

Well it looks that your better off than me. I have a lot of reloading stuff for 45 and 223, but nothing other than dies for 30-06 or any larger rifle cals.
