M1 Carbine at 300 Yards


Subscribe to Channel

Laser-measured 300 yard target shooting with the .30 M1 carbine, open sights; featuring multiple camera angles with picture-in-picture. The bullet trail will be visible for several shots. This is a 1943 Inland from General Motors, 18" barrel. Ammo is 110 grain FMJ from Remington, muzzle velocity of 1990 FPS. The velocity drops by nearly 50% at 300 yards.

This open-sight shooting exhibition illustrated the accuracy potential (and lack thereof) of the M1 carbine at the extreme range available on the iron sights.

This session was on private family property where I shoot on a regular basis. Targets are setup on a hillside that is backed by large tracts of uninhabited private property.

Spotting scope is a Nikon 20-60x82mm, #8311.

IPSC target (18" x 24") used during most of the video is from Challenge Targets. The 12" plate is from Mike Gibson Targets. All targets are AR500 steel, 3/8" thick.
