30 Carbine is expensive. Start reloading your own!
I thought the M1 was designed for the paratroopers since it was a shortened, more easily maneuverable rifle?

I've been wanting to get into reloading but I don't know exactly what to get, I hear different things from different places.

No , as already stated it was designed to give behind the line troops alittle more range/firepower over the 1911
There was a Paratrooper folding stock Carbine, that may be what you are thinking of

You are correct Brennan16, & if paratroopers used them in their assault, that would make them a Assault Rifle !

I'm pretty sure they where also designed to be a small arms for officers and artillery. So they wouldn't have to carry a full size rifle around.

Nitestalker,
If it were me, I would reduce your 120gr load down to around 1850fps for your carbine. The original load was the 110 gr fmj at 1975fps. I would not want to subject my carbine to the undo battering of the 120gr load at 2000fps. Although your load "may" be safe in your carbine, it may not in others.

The first assault rifle was a musket, which was used to assault someone by another person. An assault is an action, not an object.
