Military duplication load:
45.0 grs H335= 2806'ps
43.0 grs H4895= 2820'ps
Use commercial brass.

47.5 grs 748= 2802'ps
Use military brass

These all work fine in my M1As. Might want to work up to these loads to be sure they are safe in your weapon. This data is from data received by me from an amorory officer.

That's great! Thank you very much. I am loading for a FAL and a M1A so this is perfect.

748 win

If you use w 748 do not start at 47.5 gr's It is an extreme max load.
I used that load and had cases comming apart.
