I confess to not having chrono'ed any myself, but published numbers for most all factory .30C loads list a 110 at 1950 fps or so, not 1650.

Assuming that to be true, that's something like 975 ft/lbs of energy; a lot more than a lot of guns (.357 magnum, .32-20, .25-20, even a fair amount of of .44 magnum loads) that have taken a lot of deer.

In my brush country, where shots are never over 100 yards and almost never over 75, I'd trust the .30 carbine with HP or SP ammo on our small white tail. Northern mulies or open ranges would be a whole different story.

No idea; just what I've read in Shooter's Bible, "Guns & Ammo Annual", etc.

110 grains at 1650 is a major difference, compared to 1950. That's not much above a .357 handgun. (Bummer.)

Sounds like I need a chrono, doens'nt it...
