    I'd like to buy some pulled .30 carbine, 6.5 x 55mm, and .308 rifle bullets in bulk. Are there any sources out there?:)

    Since .30 carb and 6.5x55 are not commonly issued military calibers anymore, the odds of finding any pulled components are slim to none.

    As for the .308: Ya know there is a war on, right? The US .gov is outsourcing ammo supply to whoever can provide, including Korea and Israel to get enough .308 as it is- the odds of having any "surplus" .308 are slim.

    Believe me if I could find bulk .308 or 6.5x55 pulled projos in quantity I would want them myself.

    Talon has a contract to destroy outdated and unserviceable US military ammunition. Most of the pulled 5.56mm, 7.62mm, .30 caliber, .30 carbine and .50 caliber bullets come from them.
