    Does anyone know of a good source for 30-06 blanks? My American Legion Post has been having problems with the ones we received from govt. surplus. I have checked all my usual online sources with no results (seems even the blanks are in short supply). I would prefer the wax sealed ones instead of the crimped in a qty. of 2-5 hundred.

    I was thinking the same thing... handloaded blanks might be something to consider.

    Thanks for the replies. I may just look into the reloads. I know someone that would probably do it for us.

    Just don't mess around with the old pink blank powder. Too dangerous.
