Red face Lead Cast .30 Luger Bullets

Does anyone know where I might find 30 Luger cast bullets with a dia. of .308? I have searched all over, probably in the wrong places. Help appreciated!

Default W-w makes these in the bulk.

I had to buy a box of 4000 to get some. They also work great in the .30MAUSER.

In what grain weight?
BTW: All info I have for cast in them indicates a .311" diameter for LRN?

Try Gad Custom Cartridges:

It offers 100 gr. roundnosed lead bullet, sized to .309 inch, for $5 per 100. Heck of a deal.

Thanks guys, the GAD website was a real help. I was trying to reload some .30 Luger and my bullets were sized too small and would slip down into the casing when trying to crimp the case. I tried resizing the case mouth but could not get it right. The FMJ bullets miked at .308, I think that a .309 lead bullet will stick better. Hope these old Lugers will feed lead!
