Introducing 30 Super Carry— the most revolutionary self-defense advancement in nearly 100 years. More than just an all-new cartridge, the compact design represents an entirely new class of ammunition engineered for absolute performance by every measure.
Smaller cartridges maximize magazine capacity.
More confidence with the best ballistic performance attainable.
More Power, No Tradeoffs
The .312-inch-diameter projectile used in 30 Super Carry allows more magazine capacity than 9mm Luger, yet delivers equal muzzle energy and performance. The dimensions allow chambering in handguns with reduced grip circumference and smaller overall size for easier concealment.
The 30 Super Carry's slimmed-down dimensions result in a simple physical truth. A magazine the size of your standard 9mm Luger pistol's will carry additional rounds — two more in initially available handgun models. You get the proven power of a 9mm Luger with added capacity that can make all the difference in a real-world self-defense scenario.

More Effective Training
The best defensive cartridge will only perform to its full potential for the user through diligent training with ballistically comparable practice ammunition. UMC 30 Super Carry fills this role, providing a similar feel and point of impact as its HTP counterpart.
30 Super Carry Wins Top Industry Awards
30 Super Carry continues to make an impact, and it has the hardware to prove it. The cartridge has recently received some of the ammunition industry’s top honors, including NRA Publications’ Golden Bullseye Ammo of the Year, Guns & Ammo magazine’s Ammo of the Year, and Ballistic Best magazine’s Best New Handgun Ammo award. Editors from all three publications put 30 Super Carry to the test and were impressed across the board by its advantages in shoot-ability and magazine capacity, as well as terminal performance that’s equal to the proven 9mm Luger.
A great cartridge demands a firearm that's just as good. That's why we worked hand-in-hand with Nighthawk Custom and Smith & Wesson while engineering 30 Super Carry to help these trusted manufacturers develop handguns that will extract all the cartridge offers. Initially available models include the Nighthawk Custom President and GRP and the Smith & Wesson M&P Shield™ Plus and Shield EZ®.
