Garand question?

What is the max port pressure allowable and how much Varget under a 168 Amax would it take to max out? I was thinking 46.0 grains but it sounds a little low.

I try to keep it under 8300 PSI at the port, same as the last loading of M72 produced. Be about 48 grains of Varget in a Lake City or Remington case.
