    Just got greeted by UPS with a gorgeous arsenal refurbished M1 Garand. I could buy ammo from the CMP but it will take 60 days minimum. I have all the components but hard mil primers. Wanna trade primers for cash?

    I haven't had any issues with Winchester primers through my M1. I've shot over 1000 reloads through mine with no slam fires. Good luck! IMR 4064 works great!

    I can second this. My dad and I have 2 service grade cmp garands and I run Winchester Large Rifle without issues. 1000s of rounds without a slam fire. I have used both 4064 and 4895 with great success. If you cannot find any #34 primers, don't sweat it too much. Just be sure the barrel is down range when you slap that bolt forward(like you should be anyway).
