Back in November, I wrote this snarky little post about what I thought was going to be called the 8mm Super Carry. At least, that was what Vista Outdoors engineers were calling it back then. Well, it looks like management went another direction, and it is now dubbed the .30 Super Carry.
I see that Federal Premium is now showing SKU for 100-grain HST and FMJ. Speer has a 115-gr Gold Dot, and Blazer is offering 115-gr FMJ Blazer Brass. Remington apparently has it in the works as well.
While the patent application shows a Glock, it looks like Smith & Wesson was the first to bite. Dealers and wholesalers are now showing Shield EZ chambered in .30 Super Carry. Reportedly, S&W is also going to chamber it in the Shield Plus. Nighthawk is even going to offer .30 Super Carry variants of their custom M1911!
Federal now has a webpage live for the cartridge: https://www.federalpremium.com/30supercarry.html
