has anyone tried to duplicate this yet?

we found ourselves doing some dialing this weekend at the garand matches at perry. had it right in the x-ring all week practicing at home w/ the greek stuff but found the hornady to not quite mimick the greek stuff on our rifle. it was very consistant, i am not complaining. but looking at the pile of brass i got here i can't justify going out and buying the hornady stuff if i can duplicate it.

Use 4895 or 4064 and a match quality 150-5 grain bullet and you will have no trouble building a proper M-1 load.
The Rifleman has carried several articles in past years on the subject.
