I'm looking at a 50 round box of Sellier & Bellot 30 carbine I bought at Cabela's a couple years ago. It's brass cases and Boxer primed. I have reloaded the brass. Very good ammo.

I bought about 14 50 packs of S&B when I first got my carbine 2 1/2 yrs ago. I paid $13.00 a box then. Of course I would have bought more then for that price but my crystal ball wasn't working. I still have seven boxes of S&B in my ammo can plus a bunch of RP and Aguilla. I only shoot my reloads. Saving the new stuff for when my brass wears out. S&B shoots good and as others have already said, reloads nice!

As others have said, it is brass cased, and boxer primed... I have reloaded it, (and some for .223 while I was starting with the AR in competition) and it reloads well, without issues. Doesn't last quite as long as, say LC brass, but good stuff nonetheless.
Just as another reminder, you must trim 30 Carbine brass (AT LEAST) every other firing, and definately before the first reload. After the initial reload, I usually do every other time... This is more important with the M1 Carbine than other rifles because the Carbine headspaces off of the case mouth.

I don't reload, but S&B is brass cased... I've fired their .30 carbine, 5.56mm, 45acp and 9mm all with good results.

I fire their 45ACP FMJ for my CHL qualification because its clean, mild (milspec) and good flash-retardant.... (sounds like a cigarette advert).

I think you'll like it.

Magtech just came out with 30 carbine ammo, but it's $25/box.
I've shot some of their 38P+, 357 and 45acp, like it all.
