I don't think so. While I have only handled one, it was several years ago and I don't recall anything about caseless ammo at this demo I was at.

Re: FN57 and AR57 Chronograph Data, plus more!!!!

To have relevant data you need to include barrel lengths. How long of a barrel did your AR57 have?

Re: 5.7x28 bolt action

Sounds good! I may still go that route. If I can find enough time I will do something from scratch though as I have some pretty specific criteria.

Dillon 550 loading

Has anyone loaded with the Dillon 550 on the 5.7 round? How well does it work with this caliber? I am a machinist and am considering making a 650 shell plate, but wanted some feedback before I take on this little ( expensive) shop project. Would love some real use feedback.

Re: 5.7x28 bolt action

Thanks for the offer, but given that I am a gunsmith myself, I would like to have my own set of gauges and reamer. But we might be able to work together a bit. What sort of action did you decide to use?

As to those who ask why do it, my answer is twofold. One, because I can. Two it would make a neat suppressed rifle with hig...

Bolt action 5.7x28 rifles

has anyone built one of these before? I am seriously thinking of making one for myself. If it flys I might make some for my sisters family to use on varmint guns. I figured I would ask here rather than re-invent the wheel, maybe someone could help me save time and steps in manufacturing. Maybe someo...

Re: Adams Arms Piston System and Gemtech G5

I have an AA piston kit on my gun. I also use it with a suppressor but since my state does not allow SBR's, I needed to perm-attach my can onto my barrel. I can say a few things about this, the supressor does not like short barrels. I have an SWR wolverine. On a 10.5" barrel I got baffle strikes. I ...
