Actually, I read this in the paper magazine, a very good article.

The 30 Super Carry:
Filling The Power Gap




The 30 Super Carry averages around the 1,250 fps mark with a 115-grain defensive bullet — and this load isn’t for the faint of heart as it generates some 50,000 psi of pressure.

A high-performance 9mm load can generate “up to” 35,000 psi at maximum pressure.

Even the cherished .38 Super and .357 Magnum max out at about 36,000 psi for some perspective.

Do I have your attention yet?

John Dillinger had one, I, have 2.

I have shot and reloaded the .38 super and really like it.

Real impressed with the stats, not so much on the availability or price of the weapons for it.

Just as hard to consider, $800 to $1000, for a Colt .38 Super.

I doubt John Dillinger had a gun chambered for 30 Super Carry... ;-)

38 Super and 38 SuperComp make a great cartridge for Open guns... The brass is expensive though... :-(

Oops, my bad, I meant to refer to the .38 Super caliber.

Hyman Lebman did his gun works, including the full auto 1911.
A San Antonio gunsmith named Hyman Lebman developed quite a following among Depression-era gangsters.

His M1907 rifles included a muzzle-mounted compensator, a vertical foregrip taken from a Thompson submachine gun and a full auto conversion.

John Dillinger, Homer Van Meter and Lester “Baby Face Nelson” Gillis all made trips to his Texas gun shop to stock up on firepower.

Gillis, his wife, and Van Meter even took Thanksgiving dinner with the Lebman family.

Lebman always insisted he thought his well-heeled customers were wealthy oil men with an interest in firearms.

The M1911 was available in both .45ACP and .38 Super.
