Excellent bullet for 30 carbine revolver load very accurate in my ruger black hawk revolver Paul Blanda on 7th Oct 2021
I have been casting my own bullets, including for the .30 Carbine, for years now, but ran across these and the price was so good, I thought, "What the heck...." and ordered 500.
They came in and I loaded some with AL2400, same as I do with my own cast bullets, beginning with an average of 1812 fps and increased the charge until velocities averaged 1925 fps. Much to my surprise, there was no leading whatsoever after almost 50 rounds, even in the pitted bore of my IBM. Point of impact at the final velocity was very close to that of 110 gr. ball loads.
At 100 yds. accuracy ran from about 3 1/2" with my most accurate carbine to about 5" with a beater IBM, less accurate than hand cast bullets, but for the price, not bad at all.
In all, I am very satisfied with these bullets and will likely keep a few hundred around to load for plinking, generally goofing off and practice. Greg on 23rd Aug 2021
Look pretty good. Folks at Bayou working hard to keep up with unprecedented demand. David S on 26th Oct 2020
loaded 120 so far. All worked well and loaded cleanly. James Gregory on 13th Jun 2020
I bought these with the intent on using them in my 16" 300 blackout. I loaded up a few with varying charge weights of Lil' Gun18gr to 19gr, and C.O.L. of 1.860 for 10 round lots. I had to stop at 18.4 grains of Lil' gun. 18gr produced 2360 fps and 18.2 produced 2430 fps. There was no leading on 18.2 grains, but once I hit 18.4 the rounds was inaccurate, unable to read velocities, and seem to come apart. With all data I had 19 to 20 gr was optimal, but even with 18 gr it was able to cycle my rifle. To keep the velocity and cost down for this plinking round I am going to try to keep charges between 17 to 18 grains. The only complaint I have is the coating was thin, however I pulled the over loaded rounds and the coating seemed to hold on very well. Looking threw my box there was many that was not coated on the back(about BB size), and my seating die left a nice ring around the rounded point. Maybe I received an older batch, but I would consider ordering more. William C Ros on 22nd Apr 2019
Recently came into some old load data from the Lyman 49th edition ,
Tried out unique data which is perfect ,
These projectiles loaded on 6gn unique , works perfectly and is one good round , I'm ringing the steel perfect and even groups well at 200 ! In my M1 carbine ! Dave holden on 20th Apr 2017
This was my 1st purchase from Bayou Bullets, but it won't be my last. They seat so easy, no need to flare the case. First time at the range I shot a 1 inch 5 shot group at 25 yards. Not bad for an old geezer ( the rifle that is....) jon t ferebee on 9th Feb 2017
Even though I've shot literally thousands of polymer coated handgun bullets from a 1911 in 45 acp and model 52 in 38 special, I was doubtful that there would be no leading from a rifle.
The final load I came up with from my M1 carbine, pushed the 115 grain powder coated bullet 1800 fps and after more than 200 rounds fired, absolutely no leading. I'm a believer and at a third the cost of jacketed bullets, I know what I will be shooting from now on. Thanks for the great product. chris storeng on 9th Jun 2016
these worked great for me with zero leading/buildup. My carbine does 3" @ 100y with these (way better than Aguila junk) loaded at 1.630 COL w/ 12.0gr IMR 4227 sm rifle primer. avg vel 1530fps chrono at 10 - 12ft 20 rounds tested. Will definitely buy again and could probably push them faster Mike on 9th Apr 2016
