Surplus M2 Ball ammo?

This seems to have dried up? I can't find any on the estore at ODCMP, and I can't find a price for commercial outlets... ideas?

Federal makes an equivalent M1 Garand load. Genuine GI surplus is pretty much dried up. Some Greek stuff might still be available but I don't know its quality.

The Federal is pretty expensive by my standards ($25+ a box). Midway and Sportsman's Guide sometimes have PPU and S&B offerings in the $15-18 range, but it's not always in stock. Please don't buy it all! I still see spam cans of HXP at gun shows...but it's gotten expensive, too.

Graf and sons and SGAmmo often have PPU or S&B M2 .30-06 at around $16 a box. Also Cabela’s carries PPU M2 Ball, but only in 500 round cases. I want to say $400 for a case? Sometimes on sale.

Try www.ammogarand.com. I've purchased from them in the past with good results. Supplies and offerings ebb and flow.

This is a no brainer, the HXP had a finite number and t's about gone. Maybe there's a hugs stash of corrosive Korean out there to be released some day?

A1Uniform has a bunch at one point. Might be worth a call. I can’t confirm what they have at this moment

If there were ever a dichotomy, hugs and ammunition would be it.

Load your own. I've got my 155gr Nosler Custom Competition loads down to $0.34 a round and I push my brass to 16x firings.

I might eventually sell off my M2 Ball to buy once-fired military brass (not selling now) since it makes more sense in the long run. The only reason I have my M2 Ball is for making brass anyway.
