    The manufacturer can tell you if the ammo is M2 spec or “Garand safe.” They are usually advertised as such.

    The M14/M1A gas system was modified so can fire most any 7.62.

    If you questionable 30.06 ammo, it’s more prudent to sell it and buy known-good stock. Guys with M1903 Springfields, M17’s etc can fire just about any commercial load so you won’t get burned.

    Another option is to purchase an adjustable gas plug, but that is money you could be spending on ammo.

    Federal American Eagle AE3006M1, and Winchester makes a 147 grain FMJ which is supposed to be OK. If it’s anything else not 150 grain FMJ I’d pass.

    For ease of use in the future, I think I'll end up going with that gas plug that allows you to run anything (within reason).

    Understood. Dad left behind a largish collection, and while there's many that don't do anything for me, you don't sell dad's guns...

    Then get a DEAGLE 50 for every day carry. Small, compact and lightweight. Perfect

    Come on really? A desert Eagle in 50ae? Get yourself a real gun like a Smith and Wesson S&W500 for your carry piece.

    Listen pal. You just never know when you need to shoot out the engine block of a Mack truck trying to run you down. I like to be prepared

    Like I said get the Smith and Wesson S&W500 Lord Humungus used a 44 magnum so you'll be ready to blow away the mack trucks with the S&W .500 magnum.

    Pffft, just get one on of those printed plastic high powered rifles that everyone is printing in their living room now. Then you can fire all those super killy plastic bullets at the air intake at 6000 rounds per second and choke that fucker faster than a straw will take down a turtle outside a CA Starbucks.

    I don't live in the 19th century so a revolver is of no value to me.

    You carry a pistol to fight your way to a rifle. These are extremely unlikely scenarios.....

    Don’t know about the rest of you, but never found shooting .44 Mag to be a pleasant experience. I suspect most S&W 500’s are decorating safes.

    My coworker had an S&W500. I found the grip to be too small and I have average sized hands.

    Well, it's capable of over 3000 ft. lbs. of energy... the grip could be the size of my truck and it would still be too small.

    You guys and your toys. If you don't have a support group hauling your ammo, you might as well throw it at 'em.

    Why? You don't like large calibers and reliability?

    Last I checked they violate the AWB pistol section due to the weight restriction.

    (i) an ammunition magazine that attaches to the pistol outside of the pistol grip;
    (ii) a threaded barrel capable of accepting a barrel extender, flash suppressor, forward handgrip, or silencer;
    (iii) a shroud that is attached to, or partially or completely encircles, the barrel and that permits the shooter to hold the firearm with the nontrigger hand without being burned;
    (iv) a manufactured weight of 50 ounces or more when the pistol is unloaded; and

    Shouldn't be a problem as it's only one of the listed items.
