Yeah, is there any particular type of ammo that everyone agree's is the best overall or does it come down to what shoots best on your rifle? Yes, I did get my Garand, and I did shoot it. I'll post again with a more in depth review of my garand and some updated info. I'm hoping to have some pictures for you guys too so that's why I'm delaying it. All I have to say though is, man what a rifle. I just had a blast shooting it. I was so surprised at the lack of recoil overall. I had shot a bolt action 30-06 and the thing just kicked the hell out of me so I was expecting the same. It treated me very well. Accuracy was superb, the range I was at was indoor so it was only 50 yards, but at that I was shooting groups of about 5 inches...I'm guessing but it was pretty much where I was aiming. In all I'm a very happy camper. It turns out that my rifle does have a VAR barrel. So, well I got off track and I guess that's a pretty good overall review of my purchase. I'll post pics if I can soon. Take care.
