With gas checks seem to be OK.
Sometimes rounder nosed lead bullets may cause failures to feed.
Also keep in mind that the M1 was designed to work with a VERY specific burn rate powder with 150 to 173 grain bullets.
Use a different burn rate powder and you can do serious damage to the M1.

It's been awhile, but I knew a gentleman once who was successful with cast bullets in a Springfield M1A. These were a very hard alloy. I don't recall what his recipe was. The point is: it could be done.
Ditto on dfariswheel's comments on powder selection.
As an alternative; CMP is selling Greek surplus .30-06 in clips, on bandoliers, in cans.
