CCI #34 Primers
Has anybody used the CCI #34 military style primers in loading for the M1? If so what powder did you use? I was told using this primer coupled with proper primer seating depth would substantially reduce the possibility of a slam fire.

primer depth and seating and also proper Garand safety techniques. Most will also say that IMR-4895 is the normal powder for the Garand.
Here is a link to a great site. Read all the Sticky's

I uniform the depth (.130") on all my once fired brass before chucking them in my ready to load buckets( that way it done and only needs to be done once) and I use CCI200 primers...

Why pay extra for something you don't need if you load properly? If you seat your primers correctly, slightly below flush, you'll never have any problems. BTW, I use WLRs exclusively with both H and IMR 4895.

I use CCI #34 primers, but what is probably more important is a good tool for uniforming your primer pockets. I like the solid carbide primer pocket uniformer from Sinclair International. I use it in a cordless drill.

JAS, thanks for the info. I have 1000 of the #34's on order. I note they say they are more of a Magnum primer.
What powder do you use them with. I have both IMR4895 and WW748. I think I would lilke to start with the Sierra 168gr. MK bullet. BTW, I went out with my collector grade SF M1 (12/54) yesterday and shot 4 shots into a 1 1/2" group at 100 yds. I used the greek ammo from the CMP.

I always uniform the primer pockets before I load em. For primers I am curently using Winchesters now, but have use thousands of Federal match primers with no problems. For powder I use IMR 4895 or IMR 4064. I also recommend you make sure you have enough set back on the shoulder of the case during sizing. A case that does not want to chamber (like with dirty chamber or improperly sized case) may also lead to a slam fire. Watch this stuff and you shouldn't have any problems.
