Out of...

    The Garand, heavy bullets, and slow powders: Quest

    I am building up a Garand, 30-06, to shoot the 208 A-max and slow powders. Krieger is doing the barrel and I will be using a McCann gas system. My question is this: Does anyone know how big the gas port is for the 30-06 based rifles? We are going to install the next to lowest orifice size for...
