I wouldn't load higher than 48 grains of IMR 4895 with 150 gr. bullets and would only load just a few at 45 grains which is a good start load. From 46 to 48 grains you'll find best accuracy and an optimal load for the Garand. I shoot 47-47.5 grains of IMR 4895 with 5 different 150 grain bullets in my Garands. I use RP 9 1/2 primers in Rem, LC, HXP, and Win cases. Watch cases closely for stretching as Garand chambers can and often are on the long side of spec. Make sure primers are seated flush or below. Have fun and the Garand is definitely a fun gun to shoot.
