The 30 carbine has a similar profile bullet, but faster.
And significantly heavier.

I've never really understood why people think it's likely that a .30 caliber bullet that's quite a bit heavier than the .30Tok round and going faster than the .30 Tok round is going to be a poor penetrator when the .30 Tok is known as an excellent penetrator.

I'm not sure but I think the M1 was not designed for combat troops It was designed for non-combat soldiers rather than having just a pistol.
Maybe, but it was well-liked by at least one combat soldier who knew a thing or two about how to get the job done. If you read Audie Murphy's autobiography, you will find that in at least some situations he preferred the Carbine over the Garand.
