I have dinked with Garand loading for some time. Not an accuracy freak, but I want it to work correctly, low on recoil as possible and mostly hit what I am shooting at. Usually paint spray cans at about 90ft. Anyway, I use 46gr IMR 4895 for Garand, with 147 gr pulls....also works in 7.7 Jap.

As L999 stated, 4895 was what the '06 was originally loaded with. Your recipe is almost the exact same as mine.

Hey 47lincsled, this ammo you are having issues with, are they your own handloads? I assume they are judging by your last post about getting 4831 for cheap. Maybe your ammo got contaminated. Did it sit in your hopper too long? Ive only seen clumping like that in REALLY poorly stored ammo. The last time I saw that kind of powder was a batch of x54R that looked like it had been salvaged from a deep water wreck.
