    147gr 308 bullets

    I found a seller online that had .308 147gr bullets that were 'air pulled'. They are FMJBT with a patch of lead showing through the bottom. They are shiney and the random sample I looked at seem to be in perfect shape. I don't know what air pulled means, google didn't come up with a definitive answer. I'm closing in on the things I need for making 30-06 garand grade reloads. The company is UP AMMO SUPPLY.

    Standard ball round for use in M1 Garands and M 14's, they will be fine. I don't know how they air pull them but I use a kinetic puller and they give me clean unmarked bullets too.

    I have seen them before but 130.00 for 500 seems a bit steep to me. I was going to use them from plink load in 300blk but refuse to pay that.

    I bought some 147gr FMJBT last year(like this time last year IIRC) paid 160 for 1k and they shoot decent thru my CETMEs. Now weight a couple out and see how much they differ.

    I weighed like 20 and had upto +/- 7-8 gr fluctuation

    $35 per 100 for nothing special 155gr FNBT at the LGS, and only 2 boxes. Everyone else was out of stock, so I was glad to get them. I might have 200 cases max to load since I don't shoot the garand much. They should last a long time, almost all are Korean cases so far. There was one other source, but the bullets needed to be run through something to make them round again, they weren't going to do it and I don't need to buy a thingy I'll use once.

    I'm afraid in a year or two we will be saying 130 for 500 is a good deal.

    I recently purchased 1k of 147grn pulls from pats reloading..$175.
    Infront of 39grns of 3031 they outperform all surplus ammo i have tried in my fal
    With varget they do even better...and yes the weights vary a tad.
    If its to bright....call ELLIOT LUCAS.!

    I'll play with these and leave the CMP cans alone until I use this brass up. When the brass is scrap I'll open another can, shoot and start over.

    I have gotten pulls from GI Brass. They perform well if you sort them by weight. I find the average weight and separate into two lots, one lighter than average and one heavier. BlC2 or W748 and I can make a very accurate load for my HK

    I've already separated the brass by year and make, specifically for the swage operation. If the military was happy with the bullet weights for war, I'll be happy with them for plinking.
