We use good defensive ammo because the task at hand is so important. Not only that, but we want a round that penetrates deep enough and does enough damage to effectively shut a threat down.
“Every aspect of this new ammo has been designed to help competitors run their shotgun stages more efficiently and effectively,” said Scott Turner, Federal’s Shotshell Product Line Manager.
Federal continues to add premium ammunition that will fill the needs of hunters and target shooters in 2023.
Announced in early January of 2022, Federal Premium released a completely new caliber, 30 Super Carry. This round was designed to be more effective than 380, and provide more capacity than a 9mm.
Federal Ammunition is announcing their newest cartridge for self-defense, the 30 Super Carry. Along with it they’ve shared a couple of early adopters: Nighthawk Custom and Smith & Wesson.

Winchester’s marketing slogan was quite a bold statement, but one that was not braggadocio. When the Model 70 was introduced – way back in 1936 – it represented what I consider to be the ultimate culmination of the American bolt-action hunting rifle. It had all of the necessary appointments: a strong action – closely related to the Mauser Gewehr 98 – with a reliable extractor, capable of handling the highest of cartridge pressures, a well-fitting stock, an excellent trigger and a three-position safety which would (eventually) work perfectly with a rifle scope.
It is not often we see a caliber that actually changes the way we think about shooting. Wildcats abound, often with marginal improvement over a factory round at best. There are exceptions, though most calibers fail to catch hold. Even those backed by major players. Several new calibers have been tried in AR-15’s over the past few years, none strong enough to give the rifle new legs. Today, hopefully, that changes.
