I have a Springfield, Inc. Garand, mix of commercial and G.I. parts, and 3MOA is about right.
I didn't notice much difference between 150gr loads cranked-out in quantity, and careful loading of 168 Match Kings in prepped brass (separated by headstamp, uniform flash holes and primer pockets, etc.).
Runs off at the mouth about anything 1911 related on this site and half the time is flat out wrong.

At the other extreme, when I got my DCM program Garand (also S.A.) in the '80s, I accurized it and with 47.5 grains of IMR4064 over 168-grain SMK's, in the prone position using a sling, my first group from it was 10 shots into 0.75" c-t-c at 100 yards. So the old warhorse can be made to shoot, though that took some bedding and other work to make happen.

I've seen issue Garands shoot about 2 moa before with the old National Match ammunition, so some of this is the condition of the barrel and luck of the draw on stock fit and so-on.
