    Gentlemen,

    This file is from 1927 dealing with the Garand Rifle and Caliber to be used. Notice paragraphs 3 and 4. I think you will find them of interest.

    How 'bout that!

    They were looking at 6.5 mm back in the twenties.

    m1 cartridge

    The War Dept stopped the developement of the the .276 cartridge because of the huge surplus of 30-06 ammo on hand at the Garand's inception.

    Gentlemen,
    This is the kind of data that the books are made up from. Ordnance files that read like a murder mystery. The deals and Orders are something I am trying to get out there. This stuff has not been seen before. Here's is the rest of the memo.
