New Practice Ammo From Federal For 30 Super Carry

Say you want a handgun cartridge that hits hard and carries small. You might end up buying a pistol chambered in 30 Super Carry and then you might be looking for practice ammunition. Federal says it’s got what you want, with a new loading in its Champion Training series.

Federal Ammunition @ TFB:

The new 30 Super Carry practice load in the Champion Training series comes with a 90-grain FMJ bullet, ripping along at 1300 fps. They’re currently available through select dealers, and Federal’s website also has a purchasing option.

Chris Laack, Federal’s Handgun Ammunition Product Manager, says the new lighter-weight, 90-grain load provides low felt recoil for longer, more comfortable training sessions when compared to common 100-grain loads.

“Our American Eagle 30 Super Carry 100-grain training load is already a light recoiling, easy-to-shoot load, even though it’s matched to our Personal Defense HST 100-grain load to deliver the same feel and point of impact,” Laack says. “However, this new lighter-weight Champion Training 30 Super Carry 90-grain load feels even easier, softer, less recoiling, and more fun to shoot.”

If you aren’t familiar with 30 Super Carry, it’s a new pistol cartridge that Federal introduced in 2022, intended to offer hitting power similar to a 9x19mm round but in a smaller overall size. This lets shooters carry more rounds in a pistol of the same size. Federal says the 30 Super Carry round is more powerful than a .380 Auto round and that “with it, shooters can hold 12-13 rounds in a magazine similar to the size of a 10-round 9mm Luger.”

The MSRP for a 50-round box of the new Champion Training rounds is $31.99. See more details at

    I really need to get one of the Hi-Point carbines in this.

    I feel like 30sc missed its mark. Instead of making 9mm sized guns with increased capacity they need to make 32 or 380 sized guns with 9mm stopping power.

      The Shield is pretty small, and it could be a little smaller in 30sc. You just can get around having more energy without a heavier slide. Somebody will make a 14oz-ish 30sc at some point, though.
