The white-cased is the Voere caseless round. Propellant is the case.

The kind you can find/afford the most of.

One of the reasons the FsN is hard to sight in is that the different ammo has different points of impact (POI) on the target. My recommendation is to use whatever ammo you can get a hold of for practice, just work on your grouping. Then, once that is consistent, sight your gun using the ammo you will carry with.
If you won't be using the gun for defensive carry (i.e. range gun only) then sight for the ammo you would normally use.
For the most part, there are only 3 kinds of factory ammo out there right now - FNH 197 (aka blue tips), FNH 195, and American Eagle FMJ. When you are ready for defense loads, I suggest Elite Ammunition (banner at top of page)
Contrary to popular belief, you CAN fix stupid - it's just illegal.

So beside the green paint, is there any real difference between the old white box SS195LF and current SS198LF? As I recall the whit box ammo ran about 2100 FPS out of my five seven.

SS198 is loaded a bit hotter than SS195. I want to say about 50-100FPS faster out of the 5.7.

White box SS195LF has been in the 1950-2050 range from what I recall. I have a box to test that. SS198LF is around 2100-high 21xx fps.

:ponder: So.. It is my understanding that the ss195 is 2600 fps out of the PS90 and so the ss198 should run about 2800 fps out of the PS90?? The T6b runs at 3095 fps out of the PS90. Am I correct with these numbers?
Also.... What is the Foot pounds of the T6b compared to the ss198. Thanks!!

All those velocities are subject to change whether FN's or ours. FNH is always using different powders and before I started importing powder during the lack of supplies I had to use powders that would cost me 100fps. Not much but still not optimal.



319 for the current T6B from a FsN 562 for the PS90.

2800 fps is a bit high, when I tested 198 from a PS90 I got 2710 average. BUT based on the 2800 it would be about 460 foot pounds.

If you have 2 of the 3 values most free on line ballistic programs can supply the third value.


I like Point Blank for fast stuff. I use an older version, the new and improved one is no longer fast and easy.

:thumb: Thanks! Now I'm really liking the T6B ammo!

T6B 3095fps ......... 562 ft lbs
ss198 2800fps ......... 460 ft lbs (Real number closer to 2700fps ....... 440ft lbs)
ss195 2600fps ......... 420 ft lbs (Real number closer to 2500fps ....... 404ft lbs)
ss197 2100fps ......... 390 ft lbs

What type of velocity are you getting with the SS195 out of the PS90? I'm curious if SS198 is worth the $0.10-$0.15 price increase over the SS195 in the PS90.

I came across these interesting 5.7x28 prototypes today on IAA forum:
Image

"5.7 x 28 P90 related items. There are 3 case types here: .22 Magnum (2nd round is a triplex loading), 5.7 x 27(short neck) and normal 5.7 x 28 (end round has duplex projectile."

Yes, they all look to be saboted 4mm projectiles, including a duplex round (shoots 2 stacked projectiles at once.)

Not sure what the material is, or whether any were ever fired, but certainly a cool bit of history.
