FMJ bullets

I'm looking to reload some mil brass for my M1 and would like to use some FMJ flat base bullets (150 grain). Any one know where I can find any?

The only source I have that still advertises the 150 M2 ball 30 caliber bullet is Wideners:|281|1081|1161

The Wideners' product is a reproduction bullet. At nearly $19 / 100, you might as well just buy standard commercial bullets.

Or... It isn't hard to get your hands on pulled 147 gr FMJs. The rounded 'bevel' base doesn't differ a whole lot from the M2, and they're 30-50% cheaper. Example: Midway pulled 147 gr FMJs
Don't even try it. It's even worse than the internet would lead you to believe.

Dillon also offers pulled 147 gr FMJ bullets for less money-- $109.95 per 1000.
