The Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute (a.k.a. SAAMI) recently voted to approve Federal’s .30 Super Carry as an official new pistol cartridge. The .30 Super Carry SAAMI standards documents are now published and viewable online.

SAAMI allows free access to technical data and drawings for the cartridge and chamber designs, which are posted in the Information and Specifications section of the organization’s website. The new SAAMI Cartridge Cartridge/Chamber Designs and Revisions for .30 Super Carry can be viewed here.

SAAMI was founded in 1926 at the request of the federal government and tasked with creating and publishing industry standards for safety, interchangeability, reliability, and quality, as well as coordinating technical data. SAAMI’s Technical Committee, which consists of firearm and ammunition industry experts, reviewed the .30 Super Carry submission over about six months. The official cartridge name, maximum cartridge and minimum chamber dimensions, pressure limits, test equipment and other characteristics are all scrutinized during the process.

“At Federal, we are once again excited to have a new cartridge approved by SAAMI,” said Jesse Whiteside, Federal’s senior director of product management. “With SAAMI’s standards published for the .30 Super Carry, it will help expand this excellent personal defense cartridge to be used in more firearm platforms across the industry.”

Federal offers .30 Super Carry in a 100-grain HST Jacketed Hollow Point load in a 20-count box. The load is also available in the American Eagle .30 Super Carry 100-grain, Full Metal Jacket load in a 50-count box.
