Then he needs the Schuster plug, like I originally mentioned. Unless he really doesn't care about the longevity of his Garand.

And I wouldn't trust "any std vel 150gr load" to work correctly in the Garand.
Of course, mine is a "papered" Type 1 National Match!
YMMV though.

He may have extra Garands sitting around to use for parts.
I actually know a guy with 15 Garands.
In that case, he can shoot anything he wants to shoot.
