No, a BAR short piston gas system opertes completely different the the Garand with the huge, heavy, long, & multi-pre-bent operating rod.
Browning makes no stipulation as to what bullet weights the BAR can safely use.
Other then to stated SAAMI standard pressure loads.
Avoid excessivly slow, or excessivly fast powders.
And stick to published reloading data.
And it will be no different then shooting factory loads in any bullet weight.
I would suggest though, that the old school 220 grain RN 30-06 bullet has been totally eclipsed by more modern 165 - 180 grain controlled expansion and / or bonded core bullets like the Nosler Partition, Barnes, etc.
Look into that!
Don't put all your eggs in one basket.
Or all your primers in a glass jar!
