Mil surp would be prefered, but that seems to have dried up like everything else. I can't even find the reassembled mil component stuff anymore. If you've got a line on some, enlighten me please!
Any suggestions on sources for case lots, of decent commerical? I'll pass on the Wolf and PMC. I know Eric has Federal at $240/k delivered. Know of anyone able to do any better?
Thanks

Look at Pats Reloading, down at the bottom of the page where he lists reloading components he has ammo for sale. They have .30 Carbine, loaded with US Military components for $149.00 for 1000 rounds. I have purchased reloading components and ammo from Pat for several years and they are a first class outfit.

GA arms sells .30 commercial reloads also, there 5.56 is good stuff I would assume .30 is just as good

I got the "Canned Heat" 30 Carbine ammo from Georgia Arms and it has worked well for me.

Also worth noting, Wolf are making steel-cased 30 Carbine now. I tried a couple of boxes -- didn't chronograph it or test for accuracy, but it cycled my carbine and I didn't see any obvious problems with it.

I have been using the Wolf .30 cal for a while now, works fine in my Winchester.
no issues to report and $7.99 a box at the Cheaper than Dirt retail shop. Cheapest price I have found in the area for this.

Tony,
I've been having issues with the Georgia Arms website, could tell me how much the .30 carbine canned heat cost?

I've been looking for a source for my father, between his M1 carbine and his Ruger revolver he can burn through alot of the stuff in an afternoon with his sons .

I have one of the new Auto Ordinance M1 Carbines. Great little carbine! But Wolf 30 Carbine does not chamber in my carbine. I have fired plenty of Remington, and Federal and they work just fine.

I am not anti-Wolf and have used the polymer coated 62 grain Wolf in my AR15, and some 9mm Wolf as well.

But buy one box of Wolf to try in your M1 Carbine before ordering a case!

I'm not Tony but I just checked and Canned Heat .30 Carbine FMJ is $95/500 or $180/1K.

Thanks Dave!

Cataula,
THANKS, that milsurp component reassembled ammo is pretty much what I was looking for if I can't find orginal surplus.
I just emailed Pats for a shipping quote.

I tried to qualify myself that I was no fan of Wolf, (at least in my M1 carbine) and if I couldn't find orginal surplus or reassembled surp, who else had good commerial prices (Fed, Win)
Thank you all for your imput!

With the threads on MMC and Lancer KB'ing ARs, why would you put commercial reloads in a irreplacable M1 carbine?

Much WWII GI .30 Carbine Ball was loaded in steel cases, too, just like Wolf.

I bought a bunch from Cole's a year ago. Might check and see if they have it in stock

Wolf, all the way. Also check out Corbon's 7.62x33 DPX round.

AR15 member "swingset" loads all his own 30 Carbine.

Check with Jeff at www.gibrass.com He has some good USGI Surplus from time to time
