Default Where to buy .30 Carbine components?

I have searched all my usual sources, Midway, Wideners, etc. for bulk brass and bullets. All out of stock. Where are you guys finding any?

King Shooters Supply has .30 carbine cast lead bullets, 115gr. RN, for $29.25/500. Well they DID, I just ordered the last two boxes they had. Call 'em up, they might be getting or making some more. www.betterbullets.com

Berry's has plated bullets. http://www.berrysmfg.com/product.asp...&pp=8&sb=0&p=0

I have used Midway awhile back and had to put them on back order. I got 500 the first time, and 1000 the second of Remington 110 gr SP. What I would really love to order is the Hornady .30, 100gr half jacket plinker, or the Speer version. They haven't been available in a year. They can be driven the same velocity or a touch higher due to the weight difference, as the jacketed. It's a pretty decent round with expanding bullets!
Cases are tough, and bound to be harder to find as time goes on. As for the military, an unused obsolete military cartridge will maybe be in large demand. Had two or three K that I picked up at the range in the late 60s, when DCM sold 30 Carbines. Seemed then they would never run out of ammo, and not many reloading when the ammo was 3 to 5 cents a round.
Powder is available in most brands that are used for that caliber, but here, small rifle primers are an item that has to be found somewhere else. Very sarce still, with the exception of shot gun primers.

I back ordered 500 R-P cases with Midway back in August. They just arrived. They had nickel plated cases as of a day or two ago but maybe sold out by now.

I have bought Hornady and Sierra 110 FMJ from Sinclair International during the last couple months. If you buy in lots of 500, price gets down to $18-$19/100. I bought the Sierra after Thanksgiving the last time because they were out of Hornady.

I've been ordering 9mm 115 FMJ direct from Berry Mfg and they have been delivering within a couple/three weeks. The 110 FMJ carbine bullets may have same delivery. But, they have a velocity limit due to the soft core and plated jacket.1800 fps if memory serves me correctly.

For brass, I've been scarfing up loaded brass cased ammo a box or two at a time when I find it at gun stores and gun shows. With the Midway order, I've got about 1000 cases.

My suggestion buy in bulk when you find it. Don't hesitate when you find it.

I don't know about brass, but Widener's does most certainly have bullets.
