i am looking for ammo for my grandfather's m1 carbine..which has been checked out by an armorer.gtg. it seems that finding winchester soft points is an exercise in futility. what bout surplus ammo?
thanks in advance....

Cabela's is selling "Herter's" (I think it's Russian steel case non corrosive) for $39.98 (50) I've not shot it but it's all my buddy shoots in his. BTW it's 110gr FMJ.

Try "cheaper than dirt" they always seem to have carbine ammo for sale. I would stay away from the steel cases though.

+1. You gotta love the CMP, those guys are awesome.

Or AIM Surplus or Wideners if you want commie stuff for a little less $$$ (the PPU is a better than the Russian stuff in general). But don't do it, they're commies ;D

I have a pretty good stash of PPU 7.62mm, it's as cheap as SA or RG but reloadable.... yes, I hate buying from the Commies...

I'm half just being silly, Dennis. The Serbs aren't totally commie... And I do like the ammo, it's pretty good stuff, have shot some 5.56, .303, and 7.62X54R, all decent stuff. I'd just rather buy American when I can, it's a little better quality in general.

Comrade Ivan! How dare you talk about the state like that!!!
:p ;D


As far as the commie stuff goes, I like it. I don't have an M1 carbine but the wolf ammo (wolf is a distributor) and prvi ammo I have shot was all excellent.

Id forgot that my Dad has a M1, he got it back in the late 70s I think,Its the pistol version. Still in the box with two 15 shot clips. Had a name to it like "Defender" or something like that. I need to go over and dig it out... But it so pretty today, Riding might overcome shooting ;D Gunrunner,,

Wow, nice, gunrunner, if it's an original paratrooper model, it's worth a pretty penny because it's super cool. Don't sell it.

Well, I'd rather buy Serbian ammo over Chinese anything.

I'm very pleased with the Prvi out of the Socom, and the brass seems pretty decent. The boxes the ammo comes in fall apart pretty easily, though... :mad: The Prvi is about the same price as Berdan-primed surplus (RG, DAG, Belgian, etc) but it doesn't come in those cool bandoliers on strippers... :(

Same here. As soon as I read the name I remembered what it looked like. I worked with a cop that kept one under the front seat of his personal car. And a dozen loaded mags in his trunk. The way he shot, he'd probably need 'em all. ;D
