    Looks like the left one is loaded with a 7.62 NATO bt, M80 etc, and right one has M2 30-06 bt.

    From my research last night the bullet weights are the same but the Danishicon used a flat bottom bullet. I just shoot them, I don't know what the different types of bullets do other than the very basics.

    Early Danish 30 cal used a flat base M2 bullet but late production had a boattail bullet similar to 7.62 M80 in weight but closer in profile to Germanicon and Austrian 7.62.
    What's the headstamp on your lot? The one I had was AMA 91 IIRC.

    The vast majority of Garand's do not shoot well with the boat tail 150 gr bullets. They shoot much better with the standard M2 as it is longer and has the small extra amount of jacket to stabilize it. The heavier M1icon bullet being a boat tail does shoot well from the Garand but only because of the total over all length of the bullet and more then enough jacket to be stabilized well by the rifling.
