    Hey Nick,

    I thought, as did my buddy who gave them to me, that they were "pulled" bullets. When I took the pics earlier, I noticed that they were new. Mid 1950's style, Match Bullets.

    He no longer shoots Service Rifle, and gave me an assortment of supplies. Including 300 of the 172gr Match Bullets.

    Now another trivia question. Do you know what IMR stands for, in the DuPont powder line?

    Later, Mark

    I've read, and promptly forgotten, the many ways to diagnose all kinds of problems with the Garand by registering what the en-block clips do when ejected.
    The Garand Collectors Association had a write-up about it once. The Schuster gas plug works as advertised.

    I've had two new Springfield M1s and one service grade CMP. I shot the new UMC 150 fmj and for softnose, the Federal Blue Box 150. All worked great and the clip went out and forward sort of. Good luck to you.

    It sounds like to me the clip ejector spring is weak. It's not a bid deal to change it out if your familar with taking the trigger housing apart. Numrich has them for a little less than $5.00.
