  • Which Dies

    Can someone recommend good dies to reload the Garand with?

    Actually nearly any decent brand with a full-length sizing die will do. I normally use RCBS, but I also use Hornady New Dimension dies. LEE dies work for many folks; I like their collet neck-sizing dies for manually operated rifles.
    Need to emphasize, cases must be full-length resized for the Garand every time.

      And DO NOT crimp the case neck--accuracy will seriously suffer.

        Perhaps, maybe, sometimes, not always. NEVER use the roll crimping feature in any seating die but using a Lee Factory Crimp die or taper crimp die in some cases can enhance accuracy.

        Truthfully I hardly ever crimp. Magnums, tube fed and 1 or 2 of my Wildcats where the neck can spring back again after necking down. I never crimp Garand or Standard bolt gun calibers.
