    Looks like a great SHTF rifle. It's a keeper. Get some extra springs and parts and call it a day.

    if you load Berry's plated bullets with the flatter point it makes a good small game round. Can't get it to 22 prices but pretty cheap.

    I wonder what the MV would be with Federal 9BPLE (+p+)? 2000 FPS?

    rustytxrx,

    Nice carbine, I have only seen one, and it has been quite of few years ago now. Would be a great back country small/medium game rifle.

    The camp carbine was discontinued in 1999, i'm not sure this gun was ever rated for that type of round.

    not sure with that load. but with hot reloads my buddy got 1700 fps out of his colt 9mm carbine, 1400 fps out of his G17.
