    Hornady does make ammo specifically for the M1. http://www.theammosource.com/index.p...oducts_id=2114

    I think the problem with some commercial ammo is when you start using 180gr bullets. They can be damaging to the op rod. I might be wrong though.
    Homer: A gun is not a weapon! It's a tool. Like a butcher's knife or a harpoon or...uh, a...an alligator. You just need more education on the subject.

    It's the gas pressure created by commercial ammo that can be harmful to the op rod, for you reloaders, from Master PO recipes

    These loads only duplicate military spec. velocities for the given bullet weight, using commercial cases and powders. If you are using military cases, drop all charges by 2 grains.

    IMR 3031 - 48.0 grains
    IMR 4895 - 49.0 grains
    IMR 4064 - 50.0 grains
    W748 - 48.0 grains
    AA2460 - 49.0 grains
    AA2520 - 51.0 grains
    AA2495 - 50.5 grains
    H4895 - 49.0 grains
    BLC-2 - 49.0 grains
    H335 - 49.0 grains
    RL-12 - 48.0 grains

    165/168 grain FMJ, HP or SP bullets

    IMR 4895 - 47.0 grains
    IMR 4094 - 48.0 grains
    AA2520 - 47.5 grains

    H4895 - 47.5 grains
    BLC-2 - 49.0 grains
    H335 - 47.0 grains
    RL-12 - 44.5 grains

    173/175 grain FMJ or HPBT bullets


    IMR 4895 - 46.0 grains
    IMR 4064 - 47.0 grains
    AA2460 - 46.0 grains
    AA2495 - 46.0 grains
    H4895 - 47.0 grains

    Yes, you buy the ammo anywhere, why not buy some from Wanstalls when you order the rifle?

    Non M1 Factory ammo is high pressure and can bend your op rod
    There's Mil-spec, and then there's Gunnutz-spec.
    One is stringent, the other contains nuts.

    +1, and if you must shoot factory, stick to the 150g bullets, stay away from the heavier 165's, 180's and up.
    You know you are a real gunnut when you start practicing trigger control on power tools.

    Just picked mine up from the post office two days ago. I can't wait to take it to the range, but I have some reloading to do first!
    Thumbs up to Gary from wanstalls for the awesome communication (via email), your efforts got you a sale. (Could have sold it without trying because of the quality product, but it was better off being sold to me!)
