That's a nice stash, Sip.

I recently bought a ammo can full of reloads that came from an estate. The fellow who died was known to be a good and responsible loader. Some ammo was starting to corrode and such. I pulled the usable bullets from those rounds. The stuff that was in good shape, I checked his written load data against published norms in order to see if they were reasonable. In the end, I will use most of what I bought. It's your call.

Oh, yeah, you do need a Garand. :D So do I.

From the data on the boxes this fellow also seems to be a responsible loader...but I don't have a 30-06 and since I'll be shooting it up in my friend's Enfield, it's his call...as for a Garand, I'd rather get am M1a tanker or Scout and trade the good ammo for 308....:)

Lemat...mine was fom the drive of 91.... :D
