How would pointed tips effect the .30 carbine round/would it shoot an load in the M1 .30 carbine mag?

Or be seated deeply into the .30 Carbine brass, to make magazine length. The other problem would be reliable feeding, there's a reason the bullet nose contour is the way it is on the .30 M1 Carbine round. They do make commercial softpoint ammo for plinking/small game, but it still ahs the same nose contour as the military FMJ ball ammo.

I've heard of people handloading .223 with sabbots in the .30 carbine case, works ok, better if you use a weak spring.

Yes, the Lyman (IIRC) 120-grain lead gas checks my Dad and I cast up every decade or two. Sorry, no pics. At a BHN of about 12-15 per the Lyman (again, IIRC) pointy screw device, we get 2 MOA at 100 yards, but have not tested them at 300 to see whether they shoot noticeably higher than the 110gr RNs.

I just wish it was a double-cavity mold!

That's 120 grains or so complete with gas check and lube. 311413 or something like that is the mold number.
