U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Guns & Ammo magazine recently awarded Federal’s 30 Super Carry Handgun Ammunition as Ammo of the Year for 2022. The announcement was made in the December 2022 issue of the publication. Released in 2022, the 30 Super Carry bridges a gap in self-defense loads, delivering a unique, compact, and ultra-effective option for everyday carry.

The article stated: “The 30 Super Carry is a forward-looking cartridge. The way the industry innovates is to push boundaries beyond what already exists. The introduction of the 30 Super Carry paves the way for the future development of new pistols that use modern manufacturing to optimize capacity, dimensions, ergonomics, and weight.”

To win the award of Ammo of the Year, the 30 Super Carry met the demands of being a reliable new-to-market product. The 30 Super Carry from Federal was tested rigorously for performance and judged on a point system of quality, design, and affordability. Testing was conducted by the editors and contributors of Guns & Ammo Magazine.

“Federal is very excited to have the 30 Super Carry named as Ammo of the Year,” said Federal Ammunition’s Senior Director of Engineering Drew Goodlin. “The 30 Super Carry has better terminal performance than a 380 Auto and as much muzzle energy as a 9mm Luger, all with a .312-inch projectile. Paired with Federal’s proven HST bullet, the 30 Super Carry can be used in a smaller firearm platform without compromising performance or carrying less rounds.”

The 30 Super Carry can hold 12 or more rounds in a magazine that is the size of a 10-round 9mm Luger. The 30 Super Carry is offered by Federal with a 100-Grain HST bullet design and an American Eagle Full Metal Jacket option.

With out firearms chambered for the round who cares, the next supper duper round to bite the dust,mah Pass.


Just another unnecessary cartridge to try and sell new gun versions. It will die just like the GAP 45.

It should have won “ammo of the year”…for DWM in the year 1900! It is virtually identical to the 7.65×21, or .30 Luger, of the turn of the previous century. Lets find out for sure, so it isn’t just a gunsmith’s babble:
.30 Luger: 93 grain bullet at 1200 fps, 304 fpe, in its original, 122 year old loading.
.30 super carry: 100 grain bullet at 1250 fps, for 347 fpe.
That’s not very much extra oomph for 20,000 psi of extra pressure! In my humble, 40 years of gunsmithing experience-based opinion anyway.


Must be the same as a Participation Trophy.
