Will the new 30 Super Carry take off?

Will the new 30 Super Carry take off?

There's a good bit of talk about this new round possibly getting popular, as it is supposed to rival 9mm in performance, but with added capacity in the same size magazines (16+1 in the Shield below). I would stick with 9mm & .357 myself at least for now, but this could get interesting, especially if any law enforcement agencies try it. Pistol manufacturers have models out already. Anybody shoot one?

I Hate it before even reading about it.
Just what the world doesn't need is a small caliber cartridge. To compete with the already over competitive market. And shortages.
STOP IT !!

Not sure. The 380 is good for ultra-compact carry and the 9mm is good for a good, high capacity, self-defense handgun.

There are a lot of 9mm handguns out there…

right now I need to learn more about this new cartridge I'm leaning what Grizzly 340 said especially when ammo shortages are around.  As  much as I like innovation these companies need to think outside the box.

Isn't a .312" bullet used in .32 revolvers?  At least bullets should be available. The double stack magazine would be a detriment for the people that I'd guess would be attracted to the lighter recoil.    :)

I'm probably the George Costanza (from the TV show Seinfeld) of predicting how well a cartridge will do. With the great ammo shortages and reloading components hard to find----at least the ones we want----a new animal in the herd isn't necessarily a good thing.
I know I'm not in a hurry to buy any handgun that is not a 22 Long, a 9mm Luger, or a 45 AP.
Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine.

Every man needs to know his limits.

I do know my Shield is a 100% reliable gun. I see this as just a recoil accommodation, nothing else. BTW, my Shield is 45 auto.

.312 is .32 caliber and this new cartridge sounds like the 327 Federal Magnum but a rimless case to work in automatic pistols.

Sort of, but the .327 mag is a little hotter, as I believe the average velocity is 1427 fps, going as high as 1655 fps with a 100 grain bullet.
Come and take it.

Why didn't they name it 32 super ?

I guess they did not want it confused with any of the many other .32's.   :)

They didn't't want it associated with anything less than a .380 and anything .32 doesn't conjure up a giant killer. :)

I get it,   whoever is pushing this new cartridge  IMO is  advertising  benefits of a small dia cartridge case which would allow more rounds in magazine & higher pressures I guess to obtain more ft lbs energy, and that's OK.  Shoot fast miss fast  unless you are really good with a pistol.  My own personal tastes the Shield doesn't fit my hand as comfortably as My Sig p-365 and for shear pointability the Beretta PX4 storm sub compact sights come up inline with my shooting  posture  even if I'm not actually looking at the sights the gun just points where I'm looking then again  everyone holds a gun differently.  I'm anal about handgun grips if it doesn't feel right I won't shoot as accurately and let's face it these small sight radius pistols are not exactly match grade accuracy ,  more of a belly gun to use at short ranges, and that's what they are made for.

Statistics say most of the anti personal handgun shots are under 25'. I don't own a handgun that will fail to do that ever regardless of caliber. .22 to 44 mag! Carrying a handgun in plus 100 degree temp indexes changes what is adequate in what is now a "war zone".  In reality, my badass GSD is a great deterrent. Wanna test her out?  ;D
