I'm a reloader and purchased supplies years ago at a lower price. I can reload a 30:06 with a jacketed bullet for about 10 cents. Is new factory 30:06 much higher priced than .308?
Be careful with the factory ammo that you buy in '06. Make sure the powder is the correct speed for the Garand.

With that logic, I'm puzzled how the caliber's you are using became the calibers you are using, since at one point you weren't using them, so by your logic you shouldn't be using them. Wink


Because something is in "another caliber" you don't already use, that is reason enough to buy said firearm, for that reason alone. Smile

These people who want to "simplify", narrow down, or eschew new calibers are bonkers. They should be ignored and avoided at all costs. Big Grin


I never EVER claimed sanity.

The designer of the gun had clearly not been instructed to beat about the bush. 'Make it evil,' he'd been told. 'Make it totally clear that this gun has a right end and a wrong end. Make it totally clear to anyone standing at the wrong end that things are going badly for them. If that means sticking all sort of spikes and prongs and blackened bits all over it then so be it. This is not a gun for hanging over the fireplace or sticking in the umbrella stand, it is a gun for going out and making people miserable with.'

I know not to use modern .30-06 in the Grarand. Once the CV f'd-upedness is over I'll figure out the price point.
