.30 M1 Carbine
Anytime a cartridge is adopted for use by
the U.S. government, its chances of success among civilian shooters are quite
good, regardless of its practical usefulness as a sporting cartridge. Such
a cartridge is the .30 Carbine. Its too powerful for small game, not powerful
enough for big game, and has never been available in an accurate rifle. And
yet, this 1940's vintage military cartridge is still high up on the popularity
chart among American shooters.
Introduced in 1940 in the M1 Carbine, this straight walled .30 caliber cartridge was loaded with a 110 grain round nose bullet at a muzzle velocity of 1975 fps. As the U.S. Army saw it, the short, lightweight rifle was far more effective in the hands of the average GI than a pistol and yet much more portable than the longer and heavier M1 Garand rifle.
Whether or not this proves to be true is debatable, but one thing is certain; The thousands of M1 Carbines sold to civilian shooters through the NRA assured this cartridge lasting popularity.
At best, the .30 Carbine is enough cartridge for javalina and varmints at close range. At worst, it is a fun cartridge for venting cans and paper targets. Probably the most accurate firearms ever available in this caliber are the Thompson/Center Contender and the Ruger Blackhawk. H110, W-296, and 2400 are excellent choices for all barrel lengths.
