Some PPU bullets are slightly undersized as the listings show. E.g. their .243's are .242. And they make 6.5 in .263 (undersized) and .264.

Don't get me wrong. I shoot a lot of PPU bullets in various calibers. They are generally nice bullets and very accurate in the right load and gun. .307/110's will shoot fine in your M1 carbine. However, accuracy will likely be reduced - especially with a less than brand new barrel. Personally, I'd find .308 JB's or .309 CB's to feed an M1 carbine. They shoot well in mine. YMMV.

Good luck.

I would wonder if .307 plated bullets would work considering that the lead in a plated bullet is pretty soft. I would bet that they would obturate, food for thought.

Look at these from my PA crack dealer, sized to .309.
