I've ran across some Norma .30 Carbine 110gr soft points, and wanted to know if anyone is familiar with them. Particularly, would it make a decent self-defense load? (Note: The M1 Carbine is not my main carbine, but I wouldn't hesitate to grab it. :wink: )

Thanks in advance.

I had some a few years ago and shot them at a section of an ash tree along with FMJ to see what difference it made. The diameter of the log was only about 6" and the FMJ rounds went clean through, shooting from about 15yds.

The soft point rounds also went clean through the wood, but the exit hole was HUGE. They tore the heck out of the log in a hurry! The penetration might still be an issue for self defense if you have close neighbors, family, etc. in the area.
