Re: CMP M1 Garands

My experience (with mine and others) is a new hand cut muzzle crown and 2650fps/165gr bullet tends to tighten things. That is if you have a problem to begin with. I think sometimes too much is expected of this COMBAT/SERVICE. rifle. Not that exceptional examples don't shine.

Been shooting alot of Berrys, especially lately. I think they are good to about 1200 or so. I cut a very slight bevel on the inside case mouth and with a little bell I've had no issues.

They will be used in a Lipsey's .44 Special Blackhawk. Hotrodding is not an object. That said this Ruger will hurt you before you hurt it with any reasonable Special load. These bullets going to waste is what I'm trying to avoid.
