Default Looking for help find components

I am getting a Ruger Mini 30, as I reload for everything I shoot. I finding it difficult to find brass and bullets, several places I check have one but not the other.

Anyone that loads 7.62X39 and want to share there source of components source it would be appreciated.

Google is your friend. Several places have once fired for 24 a case with good reviews.

7.62 x39 brass - Google Search

I think StarLine now carries 7.62 x 39 brass.

Powder Valley should have powder that will work.
Rocky Mountain Reloading has one type of bullet for the round.
I thought they'd have more.

Must be harder our East.......

All the sporting good stores out here have brass, powder, primers and bullets, so I don't have to go online.

Good hunting.

...which is about the same price as loaded, steel case Russian ammo. This is one caliber I do not reload for.
A Ruger mini will throw the brass nearly as far as the projectile. Shoot the cheap stuff, and don't worry about hunting brass.

Some .311 bullets here.
303 Caliber/7.7 Japanese (.311-.312) - Rifle Bullets - Metallic Reloading - Graf & Sons

The very early Mini-30s had a .308 bore. The ID info is out there.

Brass...

7.62x39mm Caliber - Russian - Large Rifle - Brass Cases

Tain't cheap. Almost makes more sense to buy boxer primed ammo & save the brass... provided you're shooting someplace that the brass is recoverable. My Mini throws it into the next time zone. At the indoor range I shoot at I might get 5 out of 10 cases back.

Federal/American Eagle makes a good reloadable round! I bought dies and a 100 rounds years ago for my SKS. But, every time I go to a range about an hour away I find just short of a box or two. I just put them in a big coffee can for when I'll get around loading them! I've still got 2 canned hams of Russian Hollow points, so the need to reload hasn't arrived yet! But I'm at 350-400 good empty brass. Patience is a virtue!
