does lee have dies?
if you reload 30 m1 carbine make sure to check the case leanth. i didnt one time thinking that if it was shoot fromthe same gun it would be ok . but i was wrong some would not fire.
one other thing more you can use cast slugs as you arnt driving them that fast .
I have been using a Lee Carbide set for years. Many folks still lube every 3rd case or so to make resizing easier.
A charge of Win 296 ( .3 grn below book max for me ) and a decent jacketed RN 110 gn bullet made for the carbine makes a good milspec ballistic clone. CMP rates the load high -- on par with the excellent ROK .30 Carbine surplus ball .
That's very high praise.
The Remington 110RNSP bullet is my standard: decent expansion , not quite as much over-penetration as some bullets -- less prone to bounce than FMJ. DocGKR on m4carbine.net has good things to say about the bullet and the M1 Carbine.
Hope this helps.
Do you use the same powder and charge for each bullit? If not what do you use for the soft pts?
I have used the same charge for both GI FMJ (few ) and Rem 110gn 30car SP ( many ) after going through the usual load development routine.
The usual cautions apply: get a couple good loading books , readup , find a local mentor. Making home made ammo for a semi-auto rifle is a significant step-up from loading for a bolt gun.
More potential for a devastating out-of-battery K-B.
i reload myself but have only loaded FMJ for my M1 Carb. and have recently been thinking of doing SP's so I was curious on the Powder/charge you had best results with.Currently I'm using 15 gr H110 & 110gr FMJ.
CMP has suggested Win 296 as the best way to go for Milspec ballistic clone 30M1 Carbine ammo. According to CMP , the Win 296 loads and the ROK surplus are the gold standard for Carbine ammo.
I dunno about other powder loads because I always stuck with Win 296.
Thanks,I'll have to pick some up and give it a whirl :wiggle:
