Another interesting ammo comparison. Hornaday S&W 500 mag 300 gr FTX and Buffalo Bore .44 mag 340 gr +P+.

That's an insane round! If you reload, you can get a similar boolit from Penn cast bullets. (not affiliated or an advertisement). He will also provide loading data when you buy the bullets. From their website:

Developed by world renown handgun hunter J.D.Jones the .44 caliber 320 grain SSK bullet became THE heavyweight bullet for the .44 Magnum. This bullet maximizes the power that the .44 was always capable of but was never full exploited until this bullet was developed. This design is a second generation design over the original featuring Dual Crimp Grooves that J.D. incorporated to take advantage of longer cylinder guns (Ruger Redhawk and Dan Wessons) to push this bullet at over 1500 FPS while keeping pressure levels within SAMMI Specs. Successfully used to kill 2600 pound Cape Buffaloes, the design is a proven one. Here is a case where the jacketed bullet makers tried to imitate but failed. The cast version is the superior bullet. This bullet provides the extreme penetration and snowplow effect to make it a superb hunting bullet. Capable of generating 150 more fps than any jacketed counterpart and no fragmentation like the jacketed versions. Other cast 300 grain bullets are inferior knock offs that when used with the load data for this bullet has actually blown guns up. Accept no substitutes. Load data provided only with purchase.

Those rounds must be incredible if they can drop a Cape Buffalo!! I got a pretty cool fireball from the Buffalo Bore rounds.

The M1 Carbine was designed to take the place of a pistol So instead of comparing it to the M1 compare it to a 1911. Now which one would you pick?

In some cases, but officers in the field could carry both. And there's paratroopers some already mentioned.

For me, I've got 4 1911's and a carbine AR15 and SCAR 17S. Those will get the job done.

I've also heard the carbines were carried in planes, like the B17 and B29.

I'm not knocking the carbine. If you're up close and personal, it's just as good as a Garand. You just won't be making 1,000 yard head shots.

Consider too:

The M-1 Carbine was the first weapon contracted by the US that specified non-corrosive primers.

It was available as a selective fire weapon, designated the M-2.

It was the first one to be fitted with a night vision scope, the M3. It took 3 guys to carry and operate, but they account for a huge number of enemy casualities in the Pacific. They had no idea we could see them...

Reports that the Japanese would intentionally wet and freeze their outer clothing because the .30 Carbine would bounce off are incorrect.

They used them in tanks, airplanes, and any other place that had space limitations.

Not sure if you folks have ever visited the Box-o-truth website. The guy who runs it does a marvelous job of testing various firearms and dispelling myths. Go check out his testing methods and results. The .30 Carbine bears up very well against the .223 at closer ranges. He also finds some interesting things about the .410 revolvers and a lot of other guns.

When considering ease of carry and use, size and weight of ammo, etc., the M-1 Carbine is a very good SHTF option. So is a 10/22!

I wonder how long it took the Japanese to figure that out?

I had a gunsmith shorten the barrels to just over 18" and I had him take about 2" off the stock. It's much more balanced and handles nice. Haven't shot it since the mods were done.
