30 Carbine Ammo

30 carbine ammo is a classic military caliber that's typically used for target shooting nowadays. The .30 Carbine was widely used during World War II in the M1 Carbine for which it was designed. Since then, a number of revolvers from Taurus, Thompson Center, and Ruger have also been produced in this caliber.

The .30 Carbine's ballistics have been compared to those of a magnum pistol, albeit with a light bullet (typically 110 grains) fired at higher muzzle velocities in the 2,000 feet per second range.

Small game hunters will find that .30 Carbine hunting loads can be had from Magtech, Corbon, and other companies; Hornady even makes a variant of its Critical Defense line for those who wish to use this cartridge for home protection that you'll often find in-stock and for sale here at Widener's.

    Do you have a classic M1 carbine, a Marlin Levermatic Model 62, or a Ruger Blackhawk chambered for 30 Carbine? Whatever you’ve got, you’re going to love having over one thousand high quality military surplus rounds for it!

    This ammunition hails from South Korea. The country manufactured it for its army some time during the 1980s, and it has just sat around in its sealed steel ammo cans ever since. Since the 30 Carbine no doubt plays little role in South Korea’s military operations any longer, we picked up pallets and pallets of it for a great price.

    Each round has a 110 grain full metal jacket projectile, a non-corrosive Boxer primer, and a reloadable brass shell casing. It’s convenient ammunition to use thanks to its packaging, which extends beyond a durable ammo can (complete with authentic yellow Korean lettering). There are 10 rounds to a clip, one dozen clips per fabric bandolier, and nine bandoliers in all.

    Customer Reviews

    Ammo was just as advertised

    The ammo can arrived sealed really tight and was dry inside with the ammo I inspected in great condition. The can was also rust free.
    The real star of the review was Widener's customer support that worked with me and replaced the order when it was "lost" in the mail by the carrier. Their customer service was beyond what I expected and I will buy from them again.

    Surplus 30 carbine

    Very pleased with this ammo this is my second can, highly recommend. Clean, no corrosion or rust. Feeds flawlessly in my M1 Carbine.

    Buyer beware!!

    Upon opening the can, the first thing I noticed was the mildew smell emanating from the can. Many of the cloth bandoliers had mold stains bad enough to cause holes. All but a few of the stripper clips showed rust and corrosion and 15 were severely rusted. All but about 200 cartridges showed signs of corrosion and 157 showed enough corrosion around the rim and primer pocket area to be too dangerous to shoot. At 40 plus cents a piece that's over $65 of wasted ammo. At least 3 other places that were selling this ammo the put a disclosure about age, military surplus, and storage issues that may lead one to expect what I found. Don't show hand picked pristine stuff as the representation, with out a disclosure.

    Hot ammo, very accurate.

    Be sure the springs in your carbine are up to spec. Empty cases landed 10 feet to the rear. 5 rounds, 50yds., 1/2 inch center to center. Carbine is all GI shooter I built myself-- surplus Inland receiver, Herlo barrel, late style front barrel band with bayonet mount.
