Load data for caliber ".30 Carbine"
The .30 Carbine is a popular centerfire rifle cartridge developed by Winchester in 1942 to provide light infantry with an effective weapon for combat. It was adopted in 1944 by the US military and saw extensive use during World War II, particularly by airborne troops.

The .30 Carbine operates at relatively low velocities compared to most modern cartridges and features less recoil, making it well-suited for self-defense applications or for hunting smaller game animals like coyotes and hogs. It does not offer the same level of performance as its larger siblings such as the .308 Winchester or 30-06 Springfield, but it is much easier to wield with its milder kick.

Ammunition for the .30 Carbine is widely available from major manufacturers such as Federal, Remington, Hornady and others. Popular offerings include 110 grain FMJ rounds, soft point rounds and even hollow point rounds in several weights ranging from 110 to 150 grains.

The Commission internationale permanente pour l'épreuve des armes à feu portatives ("Permanent International Commission for the Proof of Small Arms" – commonly abbreviated as C.I.P.) is an international organisation which sets standards for safety testing of firearms. (The word portatives ("portable") in the name refers to the fact the C.I.P. tests small arms almost exclusively; it is ordinarily omitted from the English translation of the name.) As of 2015, its members are the national governments of 14 countries, of which 11 are European Union member states. The C.I.P. safeguards that all firearms and ammunition sold to civilian purchasers in member states are safe for the users.
To achieve this, all such firearms are first proof tested at C.I.P. accredited Proof Houses. The same applies for cartridges; at regular intervals, cartridges are tested against the C.I.P. pressure specifications at the ammunition manufacturing plants and at C.I.P. accredited Proof Houses.
