SAAMI Approves 30 Super Carry Lead

The .30 Super Carry, introduced by Federal Premium this year, has been accepted and standardized by the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers' Institute (SAAMI). Federal’s .30 Super Carry’s SAAMI standards documents are now published and available to the public.

SAAMI 30 Super Carry New Cartridge and Chamber Designs

SAAMI allows free access to technical data and drawings for the cartridge and chamber designs, which are posted in the “Information and Specifications” section of the organization’s website. The New Cartridge and Chamber Designs document for the .30 Super Carry can be viewed by clicking here.

“At Federal, we are once again excited to have a new cartridge approved by SAAMI,” said Jesse Whiteside, Federal’s Senior Director of Product Management. “This shows the .30 Super Carry meets the strict standards set forth by the organization. With SAAMI’s standards published for the .30 Super Carry, it will help expand this excellent personal defense cartridge to be used in more firearm platforms across the industry.”

Federal Premium 30 Super Carry Personal Defense Ammunition

According to Federal, with the new .30 Super Carry, personal defense users won’t have to choose between a smaller platform with reduced bullet performance or a larger platform to carry more rounds. The .30 Super Carry has better terminal performance than a .380 Auto and as much muzzle energy as a 9mm Luger, all with a .313-inch projectile. The company says that users will see performance like 9mm Luger with slightly less recoil and additional magazine capacity.

Federal currently offers the .30 Super Carry in a 100-grain HST Jacketed Hollow Point (JHP) load in a 20-count box, and an American Eagle 100-grain Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) load in a 50-round box.
