    Hornady Garand load data

    I hear one of the Hornady Load Books has a special section within the .30-06 load data just for use in the M1 Garand.

    I have a couple of Hornady books, but don't have this section, and really do not want to buy another just for this info.

    Would a fellow kind member be able to scan these pages and send me a copy?

    I think mine have that section. I'll see what I can come up with and let you know.

    I also had a Hornady book without the Grand info.
    If possible, I'd also like a copy of the load data.

    While looking for the data, just load 46 grains of 4895 behind 150-180 grain pointy bullet and have at it. My favorite is the Hornady 165 gr spire point, that they no longer produce, of course. If using boolits, size .309 or .310, whatever shoots best.

    One of the most endearing sights in the world is the vision of a naked good-looking woman leaving the bedroom to make breakfast. Bolivar Shagnasty (I believe that Lazarus Long also said it, but I can't find any record of it.)

    I ran off to work last night without the manual. That's what happens when I put of important stuff to work on my taxes . If I don't pack it up when I get home this morning I'll do the same thing again.
