Rob Pincus, President of Avidity Arms, posted this video to explain the decision to chamber his PD10 in 30 Super Carry. The PD10 Pistol was originally released in 9mm only. One of the basic design elements of the PD10 was that it was designed “exclusively” for the 9mm cartridge, so why the addition of a 30SC option? Well, Rob feels that’s just how good the new personal defense focused option from Federal Ammunition is. Chambering the PD10 in 30 Super Carry changes very little about the super slim mid sized pistol, but it does add capacity without sacrificing performance. In fact, Pincus’ own testing of 30SC hollow point rounds in gel showed that they can outperform comparable 9mm rounds!
PD10s in 30 Super Carry are expected to begin shipping to retailers in February. Avidity Arms will also make Conversion Kits available for those who already own 9mm PD10s!
30 Super Carry Ammunition is widely available from a variety of trusted brands in full metal jacket and hollow point designs. The bullets are generally lighter than 9mm options and move faster, delivering similar energy to the target. The smaller diameter bullets will often penetrate deeper than their 9mm counterparts in tests.
