The military 30-06 is loaded to a specific spec and power range, that the M1, and other guns in service in that caliber, were designed to operate in.

The commercial stuff is loaded in a variety of loads, some using heavier bullets and slower burning powders that are outside the M1's designed operating range, which may cause damage to the gun.
