    Outstanding info, thank you for it. I can now see I've been loading my "M2" rounds light by over a grain. - Bill

    "...light by over a grain..." Depends on the powder lot used. .30 M2 ammo used a 152 grain bullet at 2800 FPS after 1940. Not 2740 FPS. The numbers in the TM 43-0001-27 appear to be about .30 M1906 ammo. The stuff used until .30 AP and .30 M2 velocities were ordered to be the same to match ballistics.
    And Machine Guns, Caliber .30, M37, M1919A4 and M1919A6; and Rifle, Caliber .30, M1icon were declared obsolete long before 1994.
    Spelling and Grammar count!

    I've got literature that shows 2800 FPS, but doesn't mention whether it's measured at the muzzle. Another reference shows 2740 FPS (+/- 30) @ 78 ft. from the muzzle. Other powders were listed, too. M2 Ball is listed on page 5-9 of the 1994 PDF and shows 50g of IMR 4895 - sounds correct to me for that powder. - Bob
