Midway has some 30-06 for the M-1 Garand, in M1 clips.


M1 ammo is getting harder to find, particularly non-corrosive  ammo.  Midway has some but probably not a lot, they tend to be more oriented towards reloading supplies and equipment than ammunition.  Still, this is a good enough deal I thought I would post it.

  1. Interesting, I believe PRVI Partisan makes a 150 gr load with the Garand in mind.

  2. They do, and it's excellent. Top flight brass, great bullets, noncorrosive, reloadable and very fairly priced. They sell it by the .50 cal can. But it is always out of stock. I am on the waiting list at Aim Surplus but they never have it when I respond to their notifications.

  3. Hey Harry,

    One day I would like to own a M1 Garand. It would not be a practical shooter. Maybe more of a safe queen I take out and shoot once in a great while. An Indian Isapore rifle would be more pratical.

    Mossberg now makes a bolt action .308 that uses M1A mags. Now that may be a another alternative since I have a mess of M1A mags.

    I am looking forward to shooting that CZ .22 tomorrow. Never thought I would be enamored over a .22 bolt action.

    'Damn things just plum fun to shoot!!!

    1. I think the M1 is pretty practical, CC. You have to learn how to use it, but once you are comfortable the rifle will put out eight rounds of full powered ammunition with complete reliability, and it's quick to reload. It also does not use magazines, and the day may come when the leftards get laws passed banning weapons that feed from detachable magazines. Every year they get more "voters" and it's harder for Republican politicians to take a stand against the Democrats disarmament program. Then not using a magazine might be a real asset.

    Notice how Texas and Utah are the bad guys in the graph and notice how California and other state blue states are of course good guys.

    1. I'll take a look at it. I'm sometimes a bit overwhelmed with "it takes a village" people propaganda. It's hogwash but there are plenty of under educated, intellectually challenged people who will believe it.

  5. Harry,

    Midway USA, a great source to have we use them often for supplies.

    1. I buy reloading tools and supplies from them for the most part, but ever so often they come up with a good deal on ammo. I also like their catalog, although now the annual "master" catalog has to be purchased.

  6. Harry, You talk about potential legislation. I would be very comfortable owning a lever gun and a nice bolt gun.

    1. Well, I have my copy of Benson's book on caching arms just in case. I've never had a problem with a lever gun or a bolt gun, provided you are being set upon by one or two aggressors at a time. A magazine fed semi-auto really comes into it's own when there are multiple threats and you need more than a tube or an integral box magazine can offer in the way of rounds ready to go down range.You know me, I love the old bolt guns, and I have several Winchester Model 1894 rifles in various chamberings, usually got them when somebody traded them in at the gun store, or they came in a shipment and were simply too desirable not to buy when the cardboard boxes were opened. I have a brushed satin Model 1894 Trapper in .44 mag I got that way.
