5.7x28mm ammunition is deeply connected with the development of military PDWs (personal defense weapons) such as the FN P90 for which it was designed. It is a high velocity cartridge primarily used by citizen gun owners in the FN Five-Seven pistol. While military variants of 5.7mm ammunition are designed to defeat body armor, commercial ammo that you'll find for sale today is constructed for target shooting or (in the case of hollow point versions) self-defense against unarmored assailants.
5.7x28mm ammunition fires a very light bullet weighing about 40 grains. As a result, the cartridge's muzzle velocity clocks in at about 2,350 feet per second.
The number of manufacturers producing ammo for this caliber is relatively small. FN produces a load using Hornady V-MAX bullets suitable for varmint hunting or self-defense, while Federal's American Eagle TMJ load is the most cost-effective choice for target shooting.

Speer Gold Dot 5.7x28mm 40 Grain JHP – 50 Rounds$70.00
Manufacturer Speer Condition New Bullet Weight 40 Grain Bullet Type Jacketed Hollow-Point (JHP) Use Type home defense Casing Type Nickel-Plated Brass Quantity 50 Ammo Caliber 5.7x28mm Manufacturer SKU 25728GD Primer Type Boxer Magnetic No UPC Barcode 604544662375 Cost Per Round $1.40 per roundSpeer doesn’t cut any corners when they make law enforcement grade ammunition. That’s why each 5.7x28mm Gold Dot round in this box features a uniform propellant charge, highly responsive primer by CCI, and new production brass case. A Gold Dot case is even nickel plated, enhancing the efficiency with which it feeds and extracts through a semi-auto and protecting it against corrosion from sweat and humidity. But the real star of a Gold Dot cartridge is its bullet.
This round’s 40 grain jacketed hollow point performs exactly how you’d want it to when your life is at stake. A Gold Dot bullet’s jacket is applied to its core electrochemically, making it at once highly concentric for better accuracy and virtually inseparable for deeper penetration. This bullet’s nose cavity is made in two stages: one die press to control rate of expansion, followed by yet another to control width of expansion. What you get is a bullet capable of losing virtually zero percent of its weight as it pierces obstacles such wallboard and plywood, and still expanding to far wider than its original diameter. Potent stuff for the shooter who cares about their personal safety!
