.308 pull downs

Anybody know the best price for available bullets?

If I recall correctly, Top brass was $0.12 when I last ordered; now $0.158 and a wait. They did have free shipping, now $15.

There aren't any. There weren't many before the panic, I don't know of any sub 25 cent .308" bullets out there at the moment.

Pull downs are out everywhere. Last 1000 I splurged and bought new M80's from Widener's, few had bent, deformed tips.
Also stocked up on tracers with the paint worn off, 7.62X54 bullets from Pat's that were resized to 308 and any other deal I could find.

Didn't go to the gun show but a few friends did. They said the place was packed and the protest was just a few with signs.

*I don't have a running FAL*
I shoot a LOT of .308 in my 1919 belt feds. So I got a lot of the tracer pull down from Pats. its priced at $200 for 3000. The tracers don't light at all with standard loads. Not just "some may not light"

If you have a place to shoot where a tracer lighting isn't a ship wreck this is the cheapest bullets around.
