There are many (many) accounts from the European and Pacific theaters in WWII about the M1 carbine's lack of "stopping power". Accounts like an enemy taking several hits from a carbine before falling. Enemy soldiers being hit and not even flinching. On the other hand, Audie Murphy said he preferred the M1 carbine to "hunt Germans". I saw my father kill a large doe with a Universal M1 carbine with FMJ ammo. Deer made it about twenty yards before she died. Bullet went through her liver and made a hole half the size of my fist. Any bullet can be lethal, even a FMJ .30 carbine round. But there are so many better choices out there.
