.30 Carbine Ammo??

Hi, I live in central WA state on the Idaho border.

The only ammo I can find is a few boxes of Federal SP
in 20 count boxes for $19.99.


My local Dealers don't have any 50 count boxes and have been on back-order for months now.

Checking online. Cabela's and other places list ammo, but are out of stock.


I can't qualify for CMP ammo.

Where is the .30 Carbine ammo hiding?

Re: .30 Carbine Ammo??

I have 4,000 rounds of .30 Carbine ball hiding in my closet.

There's been a huge run on ammo and arms in the past few months. Things will improve in the future, IMHO.

Hello clarkston-cz,

Check out this link.http://www.odcmp.org/new_forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=64779

Maybe not a bad price, if he has any left. This ammo was manufactured in Montana. Little bit closer to us guys here out West.

Don't worry about not qualifying for CMP ammo. They don't have any either.....

Re: .30 Carbine Ammo??

have you tried: www.cheaperthandirt.com or www.sportsmanguide.com. I have been lucky enough to have a balance of .30 Carbine put away for this era, remember to save your brass, some gun shops will but it, as long if it is one-shot brass. Good luck and 1000 rds will run you $325-$375

Re: .30 Carbine Ammo??

I also have several thousand rounds of .30 carbine ammo stockpiled and am holding off on shooting it for a while until the ammo shortage lightens up. You never know when you might need the stuff for real should the liberal government decide to get too heavy handed.

Re: .30 Carbine Ammo??

The ammo situation is really not likely to get any better, at least in this lifetime [Administration]. What you have is what you have. Like many of the others, I was lucky enough to buy up on some Philippine surplus several years back, and have a really nice batch of '51 in the original bandoliers. The Wolf ammo is still do-able, but I'm not likely to feed my '43 Standard Products anything but the better stuff.

Re: .30 Carbine Ammo??

I will only use the east european steel case ammo in my Ruger .30 carbine Blackhawk. Anything that has a steel case, in my opinion should be shot in a east european ak variant or the other firearms they produce.

Re: .30 Carbine Ammo??

I was referring to the ammo I was using in it ( USA manufactured, Ruger Blackhawk .30 Carbine), USA Manufactured Ruger Blackhawk could withstand the eastern european made ammo, bring a SA revolver than a more complex semi-automatic rifle. I stated it was the only ammo, made there (eastern europe) I would use (except is an ak47, sks etc), I do hope it is much clearer for you

Re: .30 Carbine Ammo??

I think we can all agree that there are alot of mis-informed and mis-guided rumors flying around on the net about availability of ammo and reloading components. Amercian manufacturers are publicly traded companies which put out production reports and sales information for their stockholders and investors. Has anyone actually researched the info on the production numbers of these ammo and reloading producers?

Re: .30 Carbine Ammo??

You guys really need to start casting and reloading. Carbine ammo is costing me about $.05 a pop (not counting the brass, which is reuseable).

Re: .30 Carbine Ammo??

The issue with reloading here in DFW area doesn't seem to be the bullets (or their cost). My issue is finding primers and additional brass. Primers are next to impossible to find in this area - without them you can have all the bullets in the world and you can not shoot them. I am reloading the same brass I have used for the better part of 15 or more years and it is getting very worn, mouth cracks, lose primers, etc and I am down to about 250 cases I can re-use. I can not find any used brass online and even virgin brass is getting very difficult and expensive (over $23 per 100). Bullets are not a problem for me. I seem to find 110gr FMJ relatively easy. I even got my hands on some Remington 110gr SP for $14 per 100 yesterday. That means my bullet compenent cost is $7 per each box and makes the whole box about $10 per 50 (when I can find primers). Thats very affordable and I don't have to mess with the lead issue when casting.

Re: .30 Carbine Ammo??

I have three carbines now, and a fair amount of milsurp and factory ammo set aside.

Reloading for these little rifles is not something I will be doing. Primers are more difficult to find than ever, and for me, the carbine is not a plinker or a battle rifle.

If you don't know what to do with the empty brass, I'll be happy to take any you care to send my way.....

Jim, I'll be honest, I have never saved the brass.

Re: .30 Carbine Ammo??

You should start saving it. There are plenty of guys who want it for reloading.

Re: .30 Carbine Ammo??

I reloaded a bunch of carbine a few months back. I picked up a bunch of brass at the range when the Kahrbines came out, and everyone went hog wild buying those up, and shooting w/out picking up their brass. It's not some awe-inspiring pile of brass, but brass all the same. I've always picked up my own also. Finally got around to buying dies and turning it all back into ammo, and made up about 500rds. My buddy's dad also gave me 300rds of hunting shack or something ammo he didn't have a use for. I also have used wolf. Nothing bad happened.

I reloaded most of my carbine ammo with plated bullets. They're cheaper than jacketed, not as worrysome as lead...but I wouldn't wanna get hit with one. They're reasonably accurate. Nothin special, but not junk. But to be honest, I haven't bought 30 carbine in a while.
