the FNG

Yet to receive my new M1A Standard/Walnut rifle from my FFL. I will be here for reloading data, primarily. Experienced reloading for my Garand (CMP), 300 Blackout (suppressed), .223, and 9/.45/10mm pistols. I have been reloading for several years on a Rock Chucker.
Will also be perusing the gunsmithing section, I'm most interested in 1911s for my shadetree gunsmithing skills.
USAF Veteran 91-04 and current Army Civilian employee. 25 years in DoD total.

Welcome on board VinnAY, pull up an old ammunition crate and sit awhile. This here Gun Board is a great place for information on our beloved M14 Battlerifle and military surplus ammunition for feeding her. Again welcome on board and have yourself a great weekend. Thank you for your service to our country, America is better off because of you.

do your 308 loading for the garand so you don't bend the oprod(unless using a schuster gas plug). the m1a should be able to use the same loads.(shuster gas plug available for this also.)
get a good 308 case gauge and a good chronometer to get the correct fps for the garand.

Howdy from the PNW. Sounds like you're on the right track as far as reloading goes. Your rifle will get here. Hang in there.
