The very first Garands were .30.
Pedersen pushed his .276 to the point that there were Garands made for it and looked like a done deal, just choose an action.
But then Chief of Staff Douglas McArthur vetoed the new cartridge in favor of the .30 with all the guns and ammo and production base left over from WWI.
