The bullet was designed for velocities well under 2500 fps. Trying to push them much faster may result in bullets disintegrating in flight (might not).
For a much reduced plinking load the bullet may be acceptable, BUT (and that is a really big but) toying with reduced loads can set up very dangerous conditions. Such endeavors are best attempted by very experienced loaders.
And, no, .30 carbine loaded ammo cannot be fired in a .30-06.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.
