Does anybody have any experience with this powder in the M1 Garand? More specifically shooting 168gr. SMK's.

I have sent an e-mail to Western Powder and have not gotten a reply after 5 days!

The biggest reason you haven't got a reply from Western is because they don't make TAC. Check the container for the manufacturers address or do an Internet search for Ramshot.

Is this the link you got their email addy from? http://www.ramshot.com/contact.htm And did you email powder@midrivers.com? If so, you contacted the right people. Problem is, for some reason, they're not answering email. I had to enquire about some data from them including what appeared to be unsafe .357 Sig data but never got an answer from them.

Also, directly quoted from their site: "Ramshot is a registered trademark of Western Powders, Inc." So yes, they are part of Western Powders, Inc.

Yes I e-mailed the address from the Ram Shot Powder web-site. The one that said "For technical questions click here" sort of thing.

The data listed on their web-site seemed kind of hot for the M1, 168 gr. bullet at 2900 fps.
But they say that TAC is perfect for gas operated guns. I am only trying to confirm data before I do something stupid.
