    I have an M1 Carbine and would like to shoot lead bullets (save some $$$).

    I don't want to cast, but maybe get 500-1000 lead pills to try it out.

    Anyone got a good load for the lead bullets?

    A source for decent lead bullets?

    Light Cast Lead bullets for Carbines

    The lightest bullet mold I have sold as the original Saeco Co Distributor is 120 Gr RN bevel base for tire weights or in my gas check model for higher velocities. I have never had a complaint and a customer was lucky to find a brand new .30 Carbine and wanted to minimize barrel wear to keep it as new as possible. Other men with 30/30's and 06's have plinked on their semi rural properties with the lighter bullets for varmints and feral animals at shorter distances but you will have to find someone with a mold to cast for you as I do not know of any commercial sources.

    I've bought 1500 cast bullets from this guy since October for my 30-30 and so far I'm quite happy with him. I had one batch with some bad ones and he replaced a lot more then the amount I told him weren't good. To be honest I think he was happy I called before any more went out. I think he had someone new inspecting them and they messed up. http://www.carrollsweb.com/gunshop/html/midstates_cast_bullets.html
    But keep in mind that I'm not hunting with them and paper doesn't care what you shoot. I don't use gas checks with them either, but most of the time I am not pushing them very fast so I don't have any leading problems.
    Another place that has some really nice ones is Laser cast, but I don't have their web address. I'm sure you can find it in Google though.
    Amy has some she sells as well, so you could look there. http://www.angelfire.com/planet/pgbs...iorCastBullets
