M1 Carbine
 
I just purchased my first carbine yesterday, could anyone point me in the direction of cheap ammo, .30carbine? Military surplus or new would be fine as long as its cheap.

Good luck finding it cheap.

Thanks, it's a bit better than what I've seen so far.

only way to get it relatively cheap is load your own. its a straightwall case which makes the process easy. 110 grain 308 bullets are pretty cheap as well

Thanks, other than reloading its just steel cased that's cheap and I don't want to run that **** through an antique.

I was advised by a firearms restoration company that worked on my rifle not to use the steel cased ammo. They said it will damage the feed ramp and chamber eventually as it is not as soft as the brass shell casings it was intended to cycle.
