I've been sorting through the cans I ordered and so far I've got 75 rds of HXP 65. So if folks can get their hands on that, it might be more affordable than commercial ammo...
I too am impatiently waiting for my Garand to arrive. It freaked me out when I saw on their website so many options were 'sold out'.
I look forward to applying the skills learned at Appleseed with a Garand. But I won't go thru the whole weekend shooting it. Yikes. Hopefully a 100 yrd line or requal. with it.
Even with the CMP greek ammo, its .55 cents a round. .22lr, in today's market, can still be had at near .07 cents a round. 400 rnd weekend
