Best powder?

Have not played with the 5.7 in years. I know several powders have been introduced since then. Anyway, I mostly reload 40 gr pills when I do reload.

How about AA #9?

Re: Min Velocity for Reliable Expansion w 40gr VMax?

Dropping people? Only one person other than the bad guy was killed at Ft. Bliss. When one shot explodes a leg bone and the person drops, they are dropped. When SS197 is the round the drug cartels get a hold of most often for their preferred weapon the FsN and uses it kill hundreds if not thousands ...

YUP!





Fotis,

Thanks for your email. We don’t make the shell plate just because when you try to decap the primer out of head it will push the case into the spent primer tube as they are the same size.

Thanks,

Federal American Eagle Ammunition 5.7x28mm FN 40 Grain Full

What do you use this ammo for? Good for defense? Target or just wasting and keeping the brass? I am sure that at some point at some time this has been discussed but there are only so many questions you can ask about one single chambering.
