Who shoots the M1 Garand regularly?

Is there anyone here who shoots the M1 on a regular basis? Do you have a pet load that works well for you?

Yeah, I have a load that works for me in my M1.
Now....what do you mean by “works”?
Do you mean function reliably or do you mean 10 ring groups at 600 yards?
I have a rack grade M1 that I bought at the CMP store at Camp Perry in Ohio.
It aint a target rifle but it works just fine. The load is a 147 grain FMJ over 48 grains of IMR 4895.
