    In Hornady's 7th edition there is a M1 Garand section.

    Win 748 is listed with:
    168gr bullets with 41.1 start and 48.4 Max
    178gr bullets with 40.1 start and 45.3 Max

    Since there is no load data for win 748 with a 150gr bullet I can't quote you anything.

    Max COL is 3.34"
    Trim length is 2.484 Min/ 2.494 Max

    I hope this helps and good shooting!!!!
