I tried deer hunting with an M1 carbine years ago when I fell and threw my 270 down a mountain. Broke the stock, smashed the scope. I was hunting Coes whitetail. Average weight is about 75,80 pounds. Stopped to rest and had one walk up to me at about 30 yards. I hit it three times in the vitals area. Not a drop of blood. Last time I saw it, it was about three canyons away doing about 90 mph. Your deer are much larger. She would be better off with a 243 or a 6MM.

I have always wondered why a deer could be wounded (usually a low shot that hits the gut area) and someone finally told is because the guts fall down and plug the wound area so it stops bleeding after a bit.

I have never had any trouble with it and dropping a deer. I have always done a heart/lung shot and dropped them right where they where standing. But on my place 50 yards is a long shot most are in at 15-25 yards

I was in the National Guard, artillery, 1960-1964. We carried the M1 carbine then.

I a Ruger 10-22, which looks like the M1 carbine.

The 30 Carbine is a specialist deer rifle IMO. If she takes head shots, putting them right between the lookers under 50 yards, she'll be fine. Otherwise, on heart and lung shots, you're going to be doing a lot of trailing. A nice 357 Mag lever gun or something like a 250 Savage or 243 would be a better, more consistent round to use. Half the problem with the 30 Carbine is the bullets used. I use a 32/20 rifle for a lot of stuff, but use a flat point lead alloy bullet. Again, it's a specialist, short range proposition.

As far as the scope, you can get better made, brighter 1" scopes with better fields of view and more robust internals for $40-50.00 brand new. I'd go that route before trying a 3/4" or 7/8" 22 scope.
