Thread: Full Metal Jacket Rounds

  1. #1

    Default Full Metal Jacket Rounds

    I have been unable to find full metal jacket rounds anywhere off the shelf. I went to a local gun shop and asked a salesperson where I could find them. He told me that you can't buy full metal jacket rounds for a .243 anywhere. He said that you can only reload them for this caliber. I am wondering why it is so hard to find. It seems like a pretty popular bullet for predator hunting. You would think somebody would carry them. I don't one a reloader, so I am pretty much restricted to buying what is on the shelf.

    yeah, i think fmjs are pretty much .223,7.62, and a few others on the shelf but not seen any .243. maybe you could find someone on the forum in your area who could reload and sell you some? i'm sure plenty of people who reload .243's. have you found a manufacturer that sells .243 fmj's for reloading that would be a start.

    I could never find .243 fmj's on the shelf. I had a .223 and could find them anywhere for that caliber, but for smaller game like fox, they were blowing them apart so I stopped using them.

    I believe Sellier & Bellot loads some too. Not sure who else.

    I thought shipping ammo had to go through a licensed FFL. Does anybody carry these brands locally or do they have to ship through a dealer? Thanks for the tip though.

    The shipping issue, is an issue. Point is that you can call BS on the guy who told you nobody loads them, and politely ask him if he'd mind ordering some of them for you. Or find a retailer offering better customer service, eh?
