m1 Garand Ammo Allowed at Ramseur Range Steel
« on: June 13, 2015, 12:07:43 AM »
My question is: Does the Ramseur range allow the 30-06 M1 Garand steel core Greek surplus ammo on their range at the knock down or steel gong targets?  If not, what is the recommended ammo for the M1 for use on the Ramseur range?  Thanks

I'm fairly sure that the Greek HXP surplus m2 ball is steel jacketed, not steel core.  If that helps.

Second that.
Don't panic just aim.

Thanks for the correction on the Greek surplus m2 ball. Thank you Fred for your very definitive answer. I hope to see you in July.

No AP on the AR 500 targets please. They cost too much to punch holes in.  Steve
