Several years ago, the CMP issued HXP 77 ammo for the Garand & Springfield matches. There were quite a number of shooters, myself included, that experienced hard bolt lift in the M1903s. I heard said, but did not see or verify, one shooter had a damaged op rod in a Garand. I believe the cases were longer than the norm. I've had no problems with any other year of HXP ammo.
The love of guns and freedon is the natural balance to tyrant's lust for power and control.

Thanks Chuck, that was a very informative post.
just dont panic and trash all your surplus HXP 06 ammo, check function in the rifle your going to shoot it in, HXP is a safe round, and other then fitting in some tight chambers i havnt heard of any other safety issue.
