5.7x28mm Ammo

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.

    Are you fresh out of 5.7x28mm ammunition? That’s a horrible way to be! Thankfully we’ve got Fiocchi, which produces their Range Dynamics line of ammunition right in the heart of America. It’ll keep your high-velocity .22 cal pistol ready for any kind of target shooting or plinking you could come up with!

    Cursory inspection of this round’s 40 grain projectile will reveal that it is not engineered for self-defense applications. It hasn’t got a polymer tip set above a nose cavity – just a streamlined solid point profile that helps to conserve downrange momentum. The full metal jacket doesn’t contain any metals that could attract a magnet. Fire the lead-core copper-jacket bullet at any range you care to grace with your presence and you’ll be just fine.

    Fiocchi doesn’t release a 5.7x28mm cartridge to the public unless it is outfitted with a new and reusable brass case, sensitive and noncorrosive Boxer primer, and uniform charge of clean-burning powder. Safe chamber pressures and clockwork cycling can be yours soon – order today and behold our fast shipping in action!

    When it first hit the scene, it was known as the SS90. It had a 23 grain plastic-core bullet and a lightning-like 2,800 fps muzzle velocity out of the FN P90 PDW. Today this humble cartridge is known as the 5.7x28mm – and we’re going to ship it to you!

    This ammo is loaded by Fiocchi, an Italian company that was founded in 1876 by a veteran of Napoleon's army. The company is still owned by Giulio Fiocchi’s heirs, who in 1983 decided to open up an additional factory in Missouri. That is where this 5.7x28mm received its 40 grain full metal jacket projectiles, which are due to erupt from the muzzle at a (still brisk) rate of 1,700 fps. It is also where this ammo received its reloadable brass cases, corrosion-free Boxer primers, and powder that burns up nice and clean to minimize carbon fouling in the barrel.

    Fiocchi’s Range Dynamics label stands for great value and consistent performance. This qualifies as a “big box o’ ammo,” which puts 150 shiny rounds at your fingertips the second you open it.

    Want to sharpen your aim, hunt wily coyote, or defend your castle? This 5.7x28mm cartridge’s 40 grain V-MAX bullet will cover all your bases, and its high quality supporting components come together let your pistol or rifle perform like clockwork.

    FN tagged Hornady for this round’s bullet. The polymer tipped beauty boasts a high ballistic coefficient, so it provides the accuracy that satisfying range training and hunting both hinge on. The V-MAX’s polymer tip virtually eliminates dangerous ricochets!

    The V-MAX’s tip also unleashes catastrophic terminal performance. The polymer spear rests on the jacket’s rim, and extends into the swaged lead core’s internal cavity without touching its bottom. That enables it to store up tremendous energy before transferring it to the core, causing violent fragmentation in the process.

    This round’s casing is drawn and tapered to tight tolerances, so it chambers snugly, cycles with ease, and offers repeated value as a handloading component. FN’s responsive primer won’t fail your semi-auto, and their propellant clean and evenly.

    5.7x28mm would be a lot more popular if it were easier to find. And if it were easier to find, many more shooters would love it. That’s what we call a catch-22. But you’re already converted, which is why you’re sure to really dig Fiocchi’s Hyperformance Defense series self-defense ammunition!

    Fiocchi produces SS197SR spec 5.7x28 ammo for FN Herstal. This is fundamentally the same exact cartridge, complete with a 40 grain polymer tipped hollow point projectile. In addition to the bullet’s balanced lead core and concentric copper-alloy jacket, the tip helps to promote greater accuracy by significantly streamlining the bullet’s frontal profile. But the tip also remains functional after impact. It drives into the bullet’s concealed nose cavity, commencing rapid terminal expansion that transfers kinetic energy outward.

    This smooth-feeding, noncorrosive, Boxer-primed, brass-cased, reloadable and American-made ammo is suitable for all 5.7x28 firearms, including the FN Five-seveN, Ruger-57 and AR-57.

    Want to try something new and exciting out of your Five-SeveN or P90 Personal Defense Weapon? Then FN Herstal, the Belgian company that invented those fine weapons’ caliber, has got just the thing in store for you. Typically only sold to police agencies and the military, this 5.7x28mm cartridge’s 27 grain projectile is totally lead-free. Its aluminum core’s green tip makes it easy to identify that it’s ideal for indoor training and ranges where lead is banned at a glance.

    Don’t suppose for a moment that its specialized bullet makes this round one iota less potent, however. As a jacketed hollow point, it has got the ability to expand devastatingly during penetration, suiting it as well for personal defense as it does for taking smaller game.

    This round’s an even wiser choice for training given its lead-free primer. If you train wherever ventilation may not be totally up to snuff, your lungs will benefit from just such a primer. This round is brass cased and wholly reloadable, and its propellant burns clean to preserve the valuable weapon it’s fired in.

    Speer 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!
