When I inquired about shooting my Carbine in a 3-gun match, the organizers wondered if it "made minor", which is about the power level of 55gr .223 shot from a 16" barrel? Yeah, well, .30 Carbine is considerably more powerful than .223 if you value momentum as a measure of "power" (and the classic measures of power do).
55gr x 2800fps = 154 power factor
110gr x 1950fps = 214.5 power factor
