8mm (or .30) Super Carry?

The gun:



The cartridge:





It appears that the major ammuniton companies are going to make cartridges for it.

The naming, either .30 or 8mm Super Carry, is a smart idea. No gun company wants to make guns for a cartridge designation that bears a competitor's name.

It's going to be interesting to see the reports once the non-shill press and reviewers get their hands on the gun. I think that it is fair to observe that the revolver equivalents, the .32 H&R Magnum and the .327 Federal Magnum were not huge commercial successes. Introducing a new cartridge at a time when even common cartridges have become hard to find at times seems a little unorthodox. The ballistics tests are kind of marginal and the pressure (50 KPSI) is likely to result in quite a bit of muzzle blast. A .327 Federal has a chamber pressure of 45 KPSI and nobody has ever said that was a quiet round.

This may be a cartridge for places where military camberings are forbidden for civilian use and there may be a market for a reasonably effective handgun cartridge. But it's more likely, in my uninformed opinion, that this will go the way of the .356 TSW.

ETA: Another view of this cartridge, a bit harsher than mine. And what you might expect from the gun press.

Blog starts by repeating completely debunked lies.

Only paused long enough to point this out-if this is the level of accuracy, why read further?

What “lies” about the .30 Super Carry?

As for anything else, this blog isn’t generating revenue for me. If you don’t care for what I have to say, then go elsewhere. Or hang around. No skin off my nose either way.
