More Changes Everything
Introducing 30 Super Carry— the most revolutionary self-defense advancement in nearly 100 years. More than just an all-new cartridge, the compact design represents an entirely new class of ammunition engineered for absolute performance by every measure.
Smaller cartridges maximize magazine capacity.
More confidence with the best ballistic performance attainable.
More Power, No Tradeoffs
The .312-inch-diameter projectile used in 30 Super Carry allows more magazine capacity than 9mm Luger, yet delivers equal muzzle energy and performance. The dimensions allow chambering in handguns with reduced grip circumference and smaller overall size for easier concealment.
380 Auto HST 99 Grain - 9.95" Penetration, 5.88" Expansion; 30 Super Carry HST 100 Grain 15.5" Penetration, .530 Expansion; 9mm Luger HST 124 Grain 14.5" Penetration, .571" Expansion
380 Auto HST 99 Grain - 223 Ft-LBS, 1030 FPS; 30 Super Carry HST 100 Grain 347 FT-LBS, 1250 FPS; 9mm Luger HST 124 Grain 364 FT-LBS, 1150 FPS
An Inside Look
Go behind the scenes with Federal President Jason Vanderbrink and the company’s team of engineers to see what inspired the new 30 Super Carry cartridge and guided its development.
The 30 Super Carry's slimmed-down dimensions result in a simple physical truth. A magazine the size of your standard 9mm Luger pistol's will carry additional rounds — two more in initially available handgun models. You get the proven power of a 9mm Luger with added capacity that can make all the difference in a real-world self-defense scenario.
Compact Goes Big
Federal’s new high-performance 30 Super Carry handgun cartridge delivers 9mm Luger terminal performance using a smaller case to provide big benefits for concealed carry.
More Effective Training
The best defensive cartridge will only perform to its full potential for the user through diligent training with ballistically comparable practice ammunition. American Eagle 30 Super Carry fills this role, providing an extremely similar feel and point of impact as its HST counterpart.
A great cartridge demands a firearm that's just as good. That's why we worked hand-in-hand with Nighthawk Custom and Smith & Wesson while engineering 30 Super Carry to help these trusted manufacturers develop handguns that will extract all the cartridge offers. Initially available models include the Nighthawk Custom President and GRP and the Smith & Wesson M&P Shield™ Plus and Shield EZ®.
