30 Carbine Bullets
See below for our entire selection of in-stock 30 carbine bullets. Please note, this section of our website is only projectiles, not loaded ammunition. You'll want to check out this page for 30 carbine ammo ready to fire.
The United States made more than six million M1, M2, and M3 carbines during the Second World War, as well as unimaginable amounts of ammo for them. So great were the stockpiles of surplus ammo that the 30 Carbine remained an extremely affordable cartridge for decades after Japan’s surrender. We still see some mil-surp trickling in from South Korea, but more and more shooters are turning to handloading to ensure their steady, affordable supply of 30 Carbine ammo.
The original carbines were designed to fire the standard ball cartridge: 110 grain FMJ, 1,990 fps muzzle velocity. The round’s 967 ft lbs muzzle energy out of an 18 inch barrel is comparable to that of a 357 Magnum, and well suited for predators like foxes and coyote. As it was designed for engaging human-sized targets (also known as humans) the 30 Carbine will prove underpowered for deer hunting.
The most popular .30 carbine bullets will forever remain 110 grain FMJs, simply because military weapons perform best with the very specific loads they were designed for. But since a 30 Carbine load could theoretically include any .308 diameter bullet of a reasonable weight, experimentation is certainly on the table.

These are component bullets. They are precisely what you need if you plan to create your own 308 Win or other .30 caliber ammunition. They will do you zero good if you do not load your own ammunition, as they lack the cases, propellant and primers they would need to be fired straight out of the box.
Hunters across the country have made great use of Winchester’s Power-Point since the 1960s. Now’s your chance to put the 0.308” diameter 150 grain Power-Point to good use at your reloading bench!
The Power-Point is a soft point by design. Its nonmagnetic gilding metal jacket leaves its malleable lead core exposed at the tip, which enables the projectile to flatten out and gouge a deadly wound cavity following impact. The Power-Point’s jacket rim features symmetrical notches that ensure it reliably breaks open during relatively low penetration velocities. One hundred bullets per box, ten boxes per case!
These are the traditional bullets used in Winchester Power Point ammunition. They shoot to minute of deer or better out of my 06 and 308. I know there’s fancier bullets out there, but at this cost for deer hunting they can’t be beat!
