I've seen in this thread and other places that you have referenced the Hornady M1 Garand AMax load as 178gr. Unless Hornady is selling a different product down under, the bullet in the Garand Match load is the 168gr. That load was developed in conjunction with the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) that sells the surplus M1 Garands in the US. I've used this load extensively in Garand competition and it is much better than the surplus Lake City or Greek HXP loads. Hornady offers the .308 178 gr AMax bullet but I haven't seen it on their website in any loaded ammo.

Just bought your rifle and ammo books, don't foresee much sleep the next few days.
