Default Need 150ish gr 30 cal bullets

Does anyone have a suggestion on good/cheap priced 150gr or so bullets? I will be reloading them for my m1 Garand, m1903a3, and a 308 savage. I'd like a bullet that's well priced but not mil surp junk inaccurate bullets. Any suggestions guys? I've been looking around today.

FMJBT, either soft point, hollow point, or FMJ. Somewhere in the 145gr-160gr range...

+1 on the Hornady 3037's. I have shot a couple thousand of these through my M1 with good results. When I put them on the scale nearly all are within .2gr of the specified weight and give consistent COL. If you look for a sale and buy in bulk, you can often get them for around 17-18 cents each.

The Widener's "Milspec" shot pretty mediocre in my M1 and Spr 03A3, so I sold them. Best value is the Hdy 150gr FMJ like everyone else suggested. I buy Nosler Custom Competition from their outlet for $190 per thousand-same quality as the Sierra MK for half the price.

Is the Nosler outlet the same as their company website? I checked their website and they have CC 155's listed at $251. I would love to get some for $190.

Shootersproshop.com is the Nosler outlet. You have to check their website fairly often. Two weeks ago they had 140gr CC for $17 per 100. A few months ago I bought 2,000 168gr for $190 per thou with free shipping.
