USGI Pulled 30 caliber bullets for my Garand, 150 grain or so up to around 170 (whatever the standard bullet weight was right below 170)

It is just getting too damned expensive to keep feeding it old M2Ball and realoding with regular components. powder, Brass, and Primers are not bad, but Projos are driving me bankrupt

Newb question: Does 30.06 use the same bullets as .308?

Yes, for the most part. It's the same diameter, but I believe .30-06 tends to be loaded with heavier projectiles. I don't reload, though, so I could be wrong.

The problem with shipping to Canada is the ITAR, folks.

The socialist government of canada has been using the ITAR to spank US sporting goods suppliers, and many of them are just plain scared. Even with a new govt. in place, it will take years before US companies will take this risk again.


Midway got hit for sending SCOPE MOUNTS to canada. Fines in the tens of thousands.

Bass Pro got nailed with a $510,000 USD fine for shipping scopes & mounts to canada.

Other big US companies have been treated similarly, for providing weapons sights, parts or ammunition components to Canada.


My suggestion would be to start swaging bullets. Contact CORBIN, and get set up to make great .30 cal bullets. You can buy tooling to make jackets from copper tubing. The socialist government of Canada will have a hell of a time keeping you from buying lead or copper tube...

Wideners offers what you're looking for, but I don't know if they ship to Canada or not. I've had good luck ordering from them in the past and will be doing a bunch of reloading this summer.

Once again NAFTA proves to be crap!

Has the crime rate in Canada come down substantially since criminals have been prevented from purchasing reloading supplies on the internet?

that si the stupid thing, there is nothing stoppping anyone from buying relaoding components, they are not restriced.

I can buy hornady or Sierra or any other brand of projectile all damn day up here, but at around $25CDN/100 it is just not that cost effective when I like to shoot my Garand thousands of rounds a year.

I can get powder in 25# kegs, and do so regularly, adn it works out to around $18 CDN a pound or so, not great but better than the $30CDN a pound I pay if I buy in 1 pound increments, Primers always seem to be around $28CDN a thousand unless I buy in ten thousand lots, but that is fine also, I just cannto not find bulk projectiels for my Garand, everythign else I shoot shoots cast so is fine, except my beloved rifle...


It is not even a canuck rule to not ship up here, it is Customs being assclowns, and unilaterally deciding shit (they are much like the ATF in making decisions that are illegal and immoral, hence why Unintended Consequences is ahrd to get shipped up)

That bites! So if you buy from a private party through the EE will customs stop the shipment?

Depends on how it is labeled, if soemone puts down "Bullets" it will get stopped because Customs agents are not smart enough to know the difference between Cartridges and Bullets. If labeled Projectiles it might also get stopped for the same reason


I personally label such things "Swaged Copper and Lead components" it is truthful, more than accurate, and generally does not open up their misconceptions.


Brass is simply that, or "machine drawn brass components"


Canadian Customs ahs far too broad of powers regardign what gets seized, adn it is up to individual officers, which is why if you put "gun" down on anything (be it airsoft, books or whatever) it may get opened and searched, if not confiscated because they do not beleive in our rights....

Well, if I ever come across any 150g copper plated lead fishing weights, I'll contact you.
Good luck.
