30 Super Carry Review: A Critical Look and Comparison
Federal's newest cartridge has just been announced, the 30 Super Carry. Check out our MUST READ FIRST article on this new cartridge.
I think I would rather have bigger holes in bad guys, the bigger the better in my opinion. To me it seems they are trying to reinvent the wheel.More info...

Yeah just heard about this myself. Gotta wonder about this stuff. Sometimes ask myself why do we need it? Guess makers feel "money to be made"
Bingo!No offense but I hope someone produces .30SC barrels for a 1911 because, if they do, I'll grab one and rechamber it to 7.62x25.
Im gonna go ahead and predict zero not counting some random LEOs' off duty carry.So, ballistically, the 30 Super Carry is a rimless 327 Federal Magnum. Bullet diameter and weights are the same.The 30 SC case is 0.031" shorter (which is not really much) than the 327.
I guess we shall see how many police organizations adopt it, if any.
I forgot to mention in my last post that while this caliber might not end up being very popular here in the US, it may see a lot more sucess elsewhere in the world. While the United State's might have the most open gun laws, we are by far not the only country in the world where citizens can own and carry firearms for self protection... even if it is a lot more restrictive.
In many of those countries (especially some in South/Central America and Europe) they limit the caliber size of what the average (non military/police) citizen can privately own.
In many countries "military calibers" are banned from private use/possession. In some countries that's 9mm luger that is banned or like in Mexico anything above a case diameter of .38 special is restricted.
Hence why both .380ACP and .38 Super are a lot more common elsewhere. This new .30SC might just be the ticket for all those people looking to pack the biggest defensive caliber possible while still staying within their countries gun laws.
This has been my thoughts exactly. The 30/32s have enjoyed an almost cult following for over a century. There will always be the 357/38/9mm at the same weight, greater velocity, but lower capacity or larger frame size. I'll fall back on sectional density. Obviously if weight and velocity are similar, the one with the WIDER projectile leaves a wider hole and the one with the NARROWER projectile offers more penetration.yeah idk, 9mm is pretty much the sweet spot. i mean, sure + 2 rounds would be nice, but i dont think this will really catch on.
its very similar to what federal did with the .327 fed mag. its like a .357 but alittle smaller diameter, supposedly allows a small revolver or more capacity, and also less recoil than .357.
but.. i dont think that its better enough to overcome the market density of the common calibers out there.
Just how will you get the 'physics' right to be reliable with that caliber on 1911 platform??? Recoil impulse of a 7.62x25 is totally different than a 45 acp in both amount and time.No offense but I hope someone produces .30SC barrels for a 1911 because, if they do, I'll grab one and rechamber it to 7.62x25.
The same way China, Vietnam, several countries in Eastern Europe, and several small Pacific Islands did. Also the way that people in Latin America did when converting to 9 Largo. And the way some Northern European countries did with 9x21, and 9x23. Also the way competition shooters do with the 38 Super.Just how will you get the 'physics' right to be reliable with that caliber on 1911 platform???
