I was going to use one of my M-1 Garands for Deer hunting for a change of pace. Then I learned the 180 Grain ammunition I normally use could damage the operating rod. I bought some boxes of 150 Grain Remingon Soft Point and now people are telling me it will tear yup my Garand as well. I went on the CMP Forum and it was all conflicting and turned into a real good internet fight about using FMJ for hunting which wasn't my question at all. Any opinions? Thanks.
