As a relatively new cartridge that was launched in the first quarter of 2022, 30 Super Carry is definitely the new hotness when it comes to self-defense handguns. The cartridge was designed by Federal Premium and there are already a number of handguns chambered in it, so it’s a good thing more ammunition options are also coming out. CCI is among the ammo lineup with their CCI Blazer Brass 30 Super Carry 115 grain FMJ FN (Full Metal Jacket Flat Nose).
CCI’s Handgun Ammunition Product Director, Mike Holm, had the following to say about the round: “The 30 Super Carry is an all-new handgun chambering launched this year. The innovative cartridge fires a smaller-diameter bullet than 9mm Luger yet carries the same energy at the muzzle. Plus, it has significantly superior ballistics than the 380 Auto. This small and mighty cartridge truly changes the game for those looking for the most modern self-defense, conceal-carry option available.”
Regarding future possibilities and the round’s components, Holm went on to say, “The all-new cartridge could also someday be chambered in smaller, easier to conceal handguns. Blazer Brass 30 Super Carry uses reliable 115-grain full metal jacket bullets and reloadable brass, plus quality primers and propellants.”
It’s common to think training ammunition doesn’t matter, but it does. The quality of your rounds makes a difference in everything from the life of your gun to accuracy, and if the grain of the bullets is far different than your defensive ammunition the variations are even more extreme. That’s not to say you shouldn’t train with your defensive loads, because you should, but it’s a good idea to use training rounds of the same weight.
CCI’s Blazer Brass uses new brass, meaning it can be reloaded, and they load all their ammunition according to strict standards. That way shooters get a consistent performance, reliable cycling, and the option to collect spent brass to reload for even more trigger time. It’s good quality ammunition from a respected ammunition manufacturer, and using well-made ammo helps make your practice time count.
According to the manufacturer, “Blazer Brass handgun ammunition features reloadable brass cases, quality primers and clean-burning propellants. It offers reliable, accurate performance for target shooting.”
This training ammunition features CCI’s FMJ FN bullets for consistency and accuracy and utilizes standard boxer primers for ease of reloading. The ballistics charts on CCI’s website are a good tool to give shooters an idea of the round’s capabilities and limitations, but there’s nothing that can replace doing your own testing.
CCI Blazer Brass 30 Super Carry 115 grain FMJ FN is available at an MSRP of $30.99.
