Garand Questions

Recently purchased a Garand from a fellow that got it from CMP along with some Greek ammo, is this ammo reloadable?
Also what kind of commercial ammo should I shoot and are there any good sources available?

Off the top of me head Hornady and federal make commercial ammo that can be safely shot in a garand.

If you want to shoot any 30-06 a gas plug (i use schuster) is available to vent some of the gases and avoid op rod damage.

The greek stuff is good. This is better. Not cheap, but designed for the Garand.
