Yep, I agree. Garands without enbloc clips are single shot rifles. Rather than collect HXP enblocs, I would suggest buying directly from the CMP.Your thoughts are appreciated.
My point was only that he needed to find some source of clips, ammo alone for the M1 is an incomplete answer .
And certainly clipped HXP works as clipped HXP even thought the clips may not be usable in other settings as you are so right to remind us.
All the best.
