R&R Weapon Systems R40.F Velocity, Gel, Armor Test

I think their 37gr expanding is better than the frag round, but YMMV :)

Re: Elite Ammunition T6B Gel Test

Did you have a Misfire ~1.35? Seems like the FPS out of the pistol are Quite a bit slower than Advertised.... Like about 500 FPS lower It is also a little disappointing to see how far it went before creating a wound cavity. And then not fragmenting. Seems like its almost for exclusively for penetra...

Re: PS90 Headspace

Brand new CMMG barrel? What rounds are you firing? What adapter did you use to affix the barrel back into the receiver? Did you remember the spring in the receiver? How tight did you tighten the barrel?

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

The issue with 40grain V-max is not expansion. The ballistics tests I've seen have it clocked at 1700 fps. It does not fully expand, but it tumbles like a SOB and still generates more than lethal wound channels. It also makes adequate penetration depths. That's in standard blue box ammo. +1 @ 1700 ...

Re: FiveseveN Mk II Failure to Extract

How many rounds are through your gun, and have you ever given the chamber a good scrub with a 9/40 cal brush with carb (not brake) cleaner?

Re: EA 35gr .223 T6 Bullet Soon!

Is the designation going to be T6? I think people are going to get confused because people think the T6B is still 28gr because of the original designation :D

Re: Elite Ammunition 50gr Subsonic in Gel :D

5.7 expanded 2x = .448" 45 ACP expanded none = .451" 195/198 that tumbles = .816" When it comes to these little bullets, I'll take a tumble over an expand every time. As for the need to suppress the 5.7 with subsonic rounds, why? Why not just suppress a .22? Same energy levels. Because subsonic 55g...

Re: Take down power of the 5.7

Both loads will provide adequate penetration from both barrels. 17hmr is going to have very shallow penetration, and any .22lr will probably have short ice pick wounds.

There's really only 1-2 other "pistols" that are chambered in 5.7 and they are a far cry from the package of FN's Five-seven. And to be fair their FNx-45 tactical costs just as much
