A rifle that shoots pistol cartridges or a rifle that is famous for being inaccurate

Though I agree with the latter the former is incorrect. The 30 Carbine is not a pistol cartridge. It was designed and works well as a CARBINE round (typically 150 yards or less from a small rifle).

As much as I like the 30 carbine I would not use it for hunting deer. Get a .270 or 308 or 30-06 to hunt with.

If you want a tacticle rifle to hunt with then you can use the .308. I am not a fan of the 7.63x39 for hunting.

7.63x39 SHOULD be 7.62x39

I use a old Mexican Mauser 95 with a custom receiver that was cut down and rebuilt just for the 7.62x39. I use it regularly on Javelina and Whitetails. As to the M1 Carbine....the .30 Carbine is nothing more than an offspring of the old vintage 1905 ,32 Winchester Self Loading cartridge. Poor Boy 32-20 per se....... The 7.62x39 in a proper launcher is one of the most accurate rounds in the world.
