IMR SR 4759 and Reduced Loads for M1A
I am new to the M1A but have handloaded for my bolt and lever actions. Is it possible to load up the reduced load for the .308 with SR 4759 powder and manually function the action? There are recommendations in the loading manuals for these using jacketed bullets. I don't know if it is possible or practical for the M1A though.
I realize it would be advisable to seperate cases used for the reduced loads
There was a Grouse Load for the .30-06 which was fun to shoot in the 1903 Springfield.
