Yesterday, I was firing one of my M-1's and I had a failure to feed. The bolt went into battery without picking up a round. Then a little later, with a clip from the same bandoleer, it happened again. Neither one of my Garands has ever mis-fired for any reason. The ammunition was Greek ball from CMP. Inspecting the clips, they seemed rough on the inside to me, kind of like very fine sandpaper. Also, I use grease on the follower, not oil, following the advice on the Garand of "If it slides grease it, if it rolls, oil it." Maybe not true with the follower? Suggestions would be appreciated.
