I'm about to give this bullet a try in my M1. To this point I've been using 168 gr. SMK's, but I thought the Palmas might work well for 200 yard Garand matches. I. Just wondered if anyone else had any experience with them in a Garand.

I've used them both in my M1 and my M1A. They shot just fine. I went with the IMR 4064 load that was the accuracy load in the Sierra book at the time.

That figures. My rifle likes 4064 the best with the 168's too. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find that powder for over 6 months.
