    Cartridge Pressure Standards In the U.S., voluntary pressure standards for rifle cartridges are set by SAAMI, a member of ANSI. Most other countries in the world follow the standards of Europe's CIP (Commission Internationale Permanente pour l'Epreuve des Armes à Feu Portatives or Permanent International Commission for the Proof of Small-arms, sometimes referred to as the International Proof Commission). The pressures in the table below are rounded up to the nearest ksi, ie.1000 psi. Cartridges are arranged, approximately, in order of bullet diameter and then by case volume. piezo crusher SAAMI CIP SAAMI CIP other 6.5x55 51 55 46 .308 Win 62 60 52 52 .30-06 60 59 50 51 So the M1Garand should have no problem with pressure also I am looking at ar30 magazine it is single stack? no modificaion to the receiver as far as the gas regulater Schuster DCM Adjustable Gas Plug my barreld receiver is on its way to McGowen they are going to use mine as abase to make the first 6.5x55

  9. Cleaning Up 308 Chamber To 30-06

    non they feed great, I make a pocket in theextractor and tapper itso the extractor snaps over the cartridge. works like a dream
  10. Been A While / Coming Home To Build

    I am going to use a BAR mag, cut it in half and make it single stack, that way I do not have to mill the receiver to fit a magazine
  11. Cleaning Up 308 Chamber To 30-06

    only way I made mine work is that it was a heavy target barrel Shilen, i set the shoulder back about 1/2 inch and finnish reamed it to 3006, it works great, but the barrel was very heavy it had allot of meat on it when I first did it it was not far enough and I had 3006 casing expanding at the neck so I pulled it off and went deeper, you are better off just getting a good 3006 barrel.. here is the gun i am talking about
  12. Been A While / Coming Home To Build

    not home yet 50 or so more days, I am getting stationed in the UP Michigan to teach ROTC at MTU, I will be close to home after that I will retire, am getting to old for this Army stuff good to hear from you Jimro, been a time I have taken a liking to the 6.5, since I have been here in Iraq I have been working with a few companies on testing gear for them, one is Adams Arms AR 15 Piston system, works great buy the way and the other I was fortunate to see was the 6.5 grendel that one contractor was using, super accurate and vastly out performs the 5.56 rabbit round we carry, well I carried a M14 sniper rifle but thats me the BC on the 6.5 bullets are very high compared to the 30's so they shoot flatter.but anyway I will walk you all through the project as it is being done, Ken at rock-solid Ind. http://www.rocksolidind.com/ has offered to help me with the scope mount for the M1 and he is supplying me the mount for the K31, he is a great guy to work with.
  13. New Project

    looking forward to seeing your project complete and at the range keep up the good work, let me know If I can help. Mine is by far one of my most accurate rifles I have no Idea what it is capable of since I have no way of reloading, I do know that with factory ammo it has shot below .25 I love the rifle and it will stay with me till I am old and cant shoot anymore. I know you all have seen it but its so perdy, remeber there needs to be a extractor cut in the barrel for a new barrel...
