If using heavier bullets (168+) grain, I've found 4064 to work better. Use the search button. There's other posts of the powders besides 4895 that the Garand can safely handle.

Powder Valley has some IMR 4320 as well as H4895. You will have to develop loads based on published data. Good luck. I had a hard time finding any supply of Varget or IMR4895.

I prefer H4895 over IMR 4895. Mostly because Hogdens rate the H4895 for reduced loads. Check out this link: http://www.hodgdon.com/PDF/H4895%20R...le%20Loads.pdf
