New Match Ammo for M1 Garand

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have only shot a couple of matches with Garands over the years but it was a ton of fun.  Now Hornady is offering match grade ammo designed for use with the M1 Garand.  They chose powders that should provide long life for the barrel and gas system on these work horse rifles.  After years of either reloading or relying on military surplus ammo, competitors now have another option for good quality ammunition.

Loaded with 168 grain A-Max bullets with a muzzle velocity near 2700 feet per second, this might be pretty good ammo for new match shooters to learn on.  For more information on the M1 Garand and matches check out the Civiliam Marksmanship Program.
