    Condom Bullets

    I have a pal who has an M1 Garand and a lot of empty brass. I would like to reload some of stuff w/condom bullets, but would like to find some cheap GI 150-gr bullets. Anyone know where I can find some? After we do some, I plan to teach him how to reload...

    Mid-South usually sells 147 grain 308 pull-downs.

    Jeff Bartlett has GI pull down 172gr. off of .30-06 from time to time, and he's great to deal with.
    Everyone can learn from their mistakes.
    However; it's less painful, and cheaper to learn from the mistakes of others.

    Both Midsouth and Everglades Ammo have both 147 and 150 gr. FMJs in stock. Bartlett and Rock Mountain Reloaders appear to be out.

    Have found cheapest 30 cal to be not so cheap anymore and not much pull down available either, CDVS has some and like jeff bartlett at gibrass is good to deal with, last I have bought was tracer that was sealed base .

    I have a boatload of pull down bullets I'd let go very reasonably. 450 147 grainers to be exact.
