I had to scrape the bottom of the barrel... I have a FedOrd rebuild .30-06 Springfield Garand (MAR or MAY '41, if memory serves.) I love to shoot it, but it needs some serious help...

I enjoy shooting my M1. I probably take her on 30% of my range trips. If you have the info then I'd love to hear it.

Yeah I know ol' Bruce Dow, sat in his shop while he re-barreled one of mine, it was one of John Miller's match guns...

Orlando, What is wrong? Down to just 27? Are you not feeling well? LOL

A CMP Special?

It's going to be a GREAT Saturday at PERRY this year!!!

Maybe you could tell us a little about what a Special is, I'm guessing, is it hand picked parts? Art

I have three and shoot a a few hundred rounds of reloads every couple of months. Would love to read any advice from you on these fine rifles.
