    Has anyone here used IMI's .30 carbine 110gr JSP bullets, or even compared them to Remington's 110gr JSP?

    I have not used them but I got the flyer today from Wideners and they had them at 85.00 for 1000. Of course there sold out though.:crying: They look pretty good in the pic if that says anything.

    Damn...I noticed them in stock last night, and was about to order 3k of them, when I decided I should email them for confirmation that they really are intended for m1 carbine ammo.

    I have used some of the IMI 125gr 357" bullets. They worked great. Only problem is, I only bought 1k of them.
    I have had problems though with both their 95gr 380 FMJ and their 185gr FMJ SWC in 45 cal. Both of the last two have too short a bearing surface, and when loaded to MAX length, the case mouth extends past the curvature (ogive?) of the bullet. They do not feed reliably at this length. To make them any shorter than max, as I would normally do, makes the problem even worse.

    Making this even worse, I got email from them today that this was an unexpected one-time find of product, and they don't expect any more, so this was a one-time deal.
