Just a few questions:1-Is the m-1 carbine 30 cal. as powerful as a 357 magnum bullet and if so is its range much much greater and accurate? 2-I want to use the m-1 carbine for hunting,I plan to use the accelorator bullets which I understand have a flat trajegetory, I'm using a scope and want to zero the rifle at 100 yards,would this be a recomanded bullet or should I use the standard soft point which are considered legal for hunting. 3-Could I expect a good shot group with the m-1 carbine with soft nose bullets at 100 yards if I was considered a good marksman. 4-All things considered with the m-1 carbine can I rely on its accuracy to do or equal some of the more modern rifles such as the 223 caliber or 7 mm. 5- The method to this maddness is that I've been told that the m-1 carbine is low rated and ineffeciant for hunting,I am curious to know if the m-1 carbine is a formidable rifle for hunting purposes as I will be using a 4x25 scope with it.Thanks any and all answers will be appreciated.
