    We could isolate Russia totally from the world and maybe they could apply for membership after 2000 years.

    I noticed that the .30 Super Carry comes in 20 round boxes, whereas Hornady usually puts everything 9mm and smaller in 25 rd boxes.

    I think Hornady puts all of their FTX rounds in 20 round boxes.

    I've been pleasantly surprised with all the .30s so far.

    Yeah, at least in these tests, all of them seem to perform almost identical to each other. But I guess that is the benefit of being able to piggyback off of 30 years of 9mm development.

    I'll be darned, for some reason I thought they were all 20.

    I assume it is to keep the price per box closer to that of 9x19mm.

    Still it seems odd for a cartridge which is touted primarily for its increased magazine capacity.

    It may seem to be an inconsequential difference until an ammo supply shortage limits the number of boxes a retailer will sell you

    Me too. Unfortunately, other than Federal introducing it in their punch line, I haven't heard anything new coming out of SHOT.
