My fellow shooters and reloaders let me ask away. I picked up a M1 really easy from a neighbor-he has or had 2 of em. 150 bucks.
Wanting to reload a good hunting round. Understand to not exceed 165/168grn(Barnes preferrably) and to use medium powders with CCI primers to prevent "slam" fires. Think M34's is it? Don't know nothing about ball ammo and it's use outside of practicing.
Always had a hankering for one and heard of its accuracies. Needs some major barrel cleaning and have begun with Sweets and Break Free. Stock is original and looks like the foward peice needs to be replaced. Outside of that it looks like a shooter and recently was still being used.
Any help would be great.
