    .30 carbine fired from M1 carbine into calibrated gelatin.

    BB: 556.9 fps, 3.7"

    Average velocity: 1,955 fps
    Penetration: 17.8"
    Retained weight: 105.8 gr
    Max expansion: 0.640"
    Min expansion: 0.525"

    I got an error on the impact velocity so I took a five shot average. Here are those figures:

    1,975
    1,936
    1,904
    2,025
    1,933
