.30 Carbine 115 Gr. RN - Sized to .309 (Typical). Other sizes available upon request call or email for options.
Dust off those carbines, now you have an affordable option for loading those neat little rifles.
I bought a small bag of these a few years ago to test out in my Universal M1 carbine, and just never got around to it, until today. I worked loads up using VV N-110, with a min charge of 10.0 and a max of 11.2. All loads cycled the gun reliably. The best load, with lowest extreme spread and best group size, was 11.0gn which gave 1750fps. Brass was landing about 5 feet away. Group size at 50 yards was under 2" which is really good with iron sights and my old eyes. I was a little worried about the coating or lead building up in the gas port or piston, but everything looked fine when I cleaned the gun - no buildup anywhere. Very happy with the results.

Hardcast lead boolit coated in HiTek superlube. For the uninitiated, superlube coated boolits are like shooting jacketed in that there is no sticky mess like traditional cast, nor is there the extra smoke from wax/oil based lubricants.
The Bayou bullets I have launched so far have flown as straight as those that cost twice as much... I recommend them to all my reloading friends. Edward W Carlson on 21st May 2020
I have had very good luck with these 115gr. 30 cal in my 300 blackout. I load them with 16.8gr of Lil'gun and a COL of 1.835. Velocity of 1990 and gun cycles well and leaves my brass at 4 clock. I took my deburing tool and smoothed the edge of my seating die to get rid of the mark it left on the bullet. I bought an extra die to load hornady AMax with. Larry on 3rd Apr 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

After much reading of reviews of polymer covered bullets I decided to give them a try in my reloading. Shipping was very quick, I had them in 3 days. They were exactly as advertized. They loaded nicely, following others recommendations to "bell" the mouth of the cases slightly to avoid displacing the polymer. I also followed the recommended velocity for this type bullet.
Recoil was typical for this velocity and accuracy was generally good with a few "out of group"@100yds. These measured .309 and I usually shoot .310 and .311s so I feel they did great and with no smoke or use of gas checks. I wish they were available in 7.62x39@.310 or .311.

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
