I'm aware of the op rod problem when loading for M1 Garands. I have obtained the NRA recommendations for M1 loads from a number of sources, and they all say NRA recommends 49.0 gr of BLC2 with 150 gr bullets, so I think I'm probably being sufficiently conservative with 46.0, 47.0, and 48.0 loads for starters. As soon as I get a load that reliably functions the action, I'll probably stop there. Like I said in my original post, I'm not looking for top velocity here.

Note that a load that does not show signs of overpressure for the case may still be way too much for the Garand Op Rod. Being conservative with Garand loads is not a bad thing.
