Best Answer

The M1 Garand shoots a 30-06 caliber round. When the Garand was first being developed, it was intended for a cartridge known as the .276 Pedersen, which was dropped in favor of the larger 30-06. The US Navy attempted to convert some M-1 Garands to the 7.62 NATO cartridge in later years with very limited success.
