For various reasons, military ammunition is removed from service, and the bullets are pulled, the powder is dropped, and sometimes tha cases are deprimed. This is called "pulling down."

The components are usually sold by the ton.

"Pulldown" bullets and powder aren't generally quite as accurate as brand new, but the're far less expensive, and perfect for short range, rapid fire practice reloads.

Some are a little out of round, but an easy fix just run them through a LEE push through sizer of the appropriate size,walla round bullets.

You bet. That's an excellent procedure.

The problem today is finding the bullets!

www.patsreloading.com maybe some of the resized Russian left. 223 don't keep up with.

I don't believe any one any where is selling the original 30-06 or 308 pulls in any volume. I cleaned out the .308 147's a couple years ago.
