I use the Forster and except for priming, it works great. I use either my RCBS single stage or my hand primer for priming. You will have to buy the extra shell holder set due to the small size though.

I just do a very lite tumbeling before and after resizing (yes, I know its not good for the coating). Just enough to get the grime off before resizing and get the lube off after.

Hi ehryk, thanks again for your input, and I believe it does a good job the way you do it, but my question was about the sonic cleaner,wether or not to invest in one, or to look into something like a sidewinder type tumbler. Sincerely, Carsfor :ponder:

What about the Forster does not work well for priming the 5.7? (I'm thinking about picking this one up for a single stage press)

Hello, I'm looking to start reloading the five seven but I need a shell plate for the Hornaday Pro-jector progressive press. Does anybody know where I can have one made? Thank you.

The hole that the priming ram goes through is the same size as the 5.7 brass. Also, the adjustable tabs for holding the brass in place don't contact enough of the rim and will rip it off on the up stroke.

What can someone expect to pay in total to start reloading these rounds from having no equipment, looking for a rough estimate, nothing specific. I have some friends that reload their ammo but I have never messed with it.

I am using the Hornady LNL AP with the custom plate from Hornady. It works really well. I just added the automatic case feeder and am having difficulty getting it to work for the 5.7 It keeps double and triple feeding. Has anyone had any experience with this?

I am interested in a Sonic Cleaner as well. Is this a good alternative to simple green solution? Also, on the east coast, I couldn't find "Simple Green". However, I did find "Mean Green". No joke. Is this okay to use? I understand that the coating on the cases help to aid on the P90 magazine. What if your only intent to reload is for the FiveseveN? Is the sensitive cleaning really required if you are only reloading for the FsN pistol?

"Mean Green" from what I have read on it is concentrated "Simple Green" I would cut it at least one part "Mean Green" to 6 parts water.

One more category: bullet case

A .38/357 Magnum case will hold the 5.7x28mm round perfectly. If you just want something for the empty cases, you can use the .380/9mm case. I've used Cabela's or MGM brand cases for this.

Hey going to start reloading the 5.7 and want to buy a press just for that. I was looking into the lee turret press and was wondering if 5.7 parts are made for it or what ones work. I've been reloading for a few years now so I'm aware of the other tid bits I'm going to need but any help or info would be great. Thanks ahead of time any input would be awesome.

I would advise you to go to the forum archive or the wiki I believe there is a complete list of things that you can use and as far as I know elite ammunition has a good list of loaded and reloading equipment Sincerely, Carsfor
