    I have an ample supply of LC and HXP M2 ball and other than the odd clip or box at yard sales/flea markets I havent bought any in quantity in years.
    I do have a couple handloads that would be appropriate should I ever run out as they are really nothing more than M2 ball duplicates with 150gr SP bullets.
    I shoot these in an original Winchester Model 1895 SRC chambered in .30 gov't 06(30-06), as it's in the same boat as the Garand regarding max working pressure.
    ETA: the .458 Garand was a conversion done by McCann Industries for a short period in the early 2000's.
