checking out federal's ammo charts here is just a small comparison based on ATK factory ammo.

22 mag 50gr game shok
velocity at the muzzle 1530 FPS and drops down to 1197 by 100 yards
energy at the muzzle is 260 FTLBs and drops to 159 by 100 yards
wind drift is 4.7 inches at 100

30 carbine 110gr power shok
velocity at the muzzle 1990 FPS and drops down to 1197 by 100 yards
energy at the muzzle is 967 FTLBs and drops to 597 by 100 yards
wind drift is 3.5 inches at 100


add the fact that 30 carbine is reloadable and I would be more than happy to use it for varmints, self defense, deer hunting and just general plinking.
