M1 carbine should be properly modeled
The M1 carbine is given the wrong bullet!! The M1 was the "M16" of the Second World War.The bullet is only 110 grains then,and its still 110 grains today.With its rapid fire,and large ammo clips,it was a foe the germans,russians,and japanese had much to be feared. Compared to most of the ammo be used in this game,you can put the entire cartigde of the M1 carbine inside the rounds and still have room to spare.Plus the ballistics of the M1 is far slower than the other rounds of ammo.Most WW2 guns are shooting between 2,300 fps to 2,700 fps,while the M1 gets about 1,400 fps.It can be use d as a sniper rifle,but its trajectory is more like a rainbow at ranges over 200 meters!!!

Just for the" fun of it",I reloaded 5 rounds of .30 caliber carbine rounds with Russian 7.62 mm bullets.Using the same loads used for WW2 service issue,the gun "kicked like a mule",muzzle velocity was down by 850 fps,due to the overweight bullets,and started tumbling as soon as it left the barrel.Like,from 1900 fps for service ammo,to 1150 fps via reloads.The M1 carbine is just a maginal sniper weapon,with bullet drop of about 6 feet when bore sighted at 300 meters.The reloads,when bore sighted for 300 meters,bullet drop was very close to 14 feet!!!
