.30 carbine commercial ammo
A friend wants to know, when was commercial ammo for the USGI .30 carbine first produced?
None of my usual sources mentions this. The only info we have been able to find is that in a (reprint) of a 1951 Gun Digest, .30 Carbine is not listed in the ammo tables (Rem, Win, etc)
He feel pretty sure it was shortly after Korea, but we have no proof.
Anyone know when Win/Rem, etc., introduced .30 Carbine sporting ammo to the civilian market?
All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.
