The 30 Super Carry cartridge is one that our own James Reeves of TFBTV has raved about since its inception and now Federal Premium has an additional option for concealed carry advocates in Punch 30 Super Carry with a 103-grain personal defense hollow point. With sparse options on the market today for ammo, it is great to see Federal bringing another choice to the market. We announced this round back at SHOT Show 2023, but it is finally available and shipping out nationwide!
Federal Premium @ TFB:
The Federal Premium Personal Defense Punch 30 Super Carry 103 Grain load is available in 20-count boxes for an MSRP of $26.99 placing it in similar territory to other hollow-points that they produce. For people who want an upgrade from .380 ACP, but not quite get into 9mm, the 30 Super Carry round is a great middle ground. The full specs for this new offering can be read below as presented by Federal Premium:
- Punch jacketed hollow-point bullet design provides a balanced mix of effective penetration and expansion
- Out-performs competitor rounds
- Quality brass case with primer seal
- Balanced performance across different platforms and through the most common barriers
- Significantly less recoil than 9mm Luger
- Same power as 9mm Luger with as many as three more rounds of magazine capacity in currently available handguns
Get protection that delivers a knockout blow. Punch™ draws from Federal® Ammunition’s decades of experience designing the world’s finest defensive handgun loads. The bullet’s skived jacket and soft lead core produce ideal expansion and penetration for the most common situations, while its quality brass and sealed primer deliver reliable feeding and ignition.
While I believe the 30 Super Carry is definitely a cartridge that is “an acquired taste” – maybe not for everybody – I do like that ammunition manufacturers are listening to shooters and still looking to create new cartridges and new offerings. Again, this new offering from Federal is finally available and shipping to local in-person and online dealers. As always, let us know all of your thoughts in the Comments below! We always appreciate your feedback.
