The .30 Carbine Ammo is a rimless cartridge that was introduced into the markets in 1942. The basic design of the .30 Carbine Ammo is based on the much older .32 Winchester Self Loading Ammo of 1906. The .30 Carbine Ammo uses a light casing and improved gunpowder. These additions resulted in the .30 Carbine Ammo delivering 41% higher muzzle velocity and 27% more impact energy. The US military demanded a bullet greater than .27 Caliber Ammo and had an effective range of at least 300 yards. All of these strict conditions were met by the .30 Carbine Ammo. Other than rifles, this bullet has also been chambered in several handguns and produced good results. The overall length of the .30 Carbine Ammo is 42.7mm, while the bullet diameter measures 7.8mm. The .30 Carbine Ammo can travel at a velocity of 1,990 feet per second while producing an energy level of 967 ft.lbf.
Upon the strict requests by the US military, Winchester's Edwin Pugsley designed and developed the .30 Carbine Ammo in 1942. Due to its usability, the .30 Carbine Ammo is still manufactured today.
The .30 Carbine Ammo was created mainly for wars and to serve the military. However, this bullet is extremely popular among hunters as well. Under the right conditions, the .30 Carbine Ammo can prove to be a deadly shot for the small to the medium-sized game like whitetail deer, javelina, hogs, foxes, and coyotes.
