Hornady’s new, purpose built 30-06 match load specifically designed for the M1 Garand is loaded with a 168 gr A-MAX™ bullet that launches at 2,710 feet per second and provides match winning accuracy. Carefully designed medium burn propellants protect the rifle’s intricate gas port system, allowing safe and accurate firing of the M1 rifle, and meets all Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute (SAAMI) guidelines.
The M1 Garand was the first general issue military semi-automatic rifle, and was widely used as a battle rifle from 1936 to 1963. Recently it has gained popularity with sporting and competition shooters, as have the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) John C. Garand rifle matches that only allow the use of the M1 Garand.
Until now, Garand shooters have been limited to military surplus ammunition, handloading, and 30-06 commercial ammunition that is often too powerful for the sensitive gas powered operating system that cycles the action of the M1 Garand. Existing 30-06 ammunition can burn too hot, causing the operating system to be driven harder and faster than intended. This new offering from Hornady is purpose built to provide accurate, safe and ultra reliable functioning for the M1 Garand.
