I am brand new to the forum, and to the 5.7.
I reload, and have read through most of the info on loading for the 5.7.

Can someone please direct me to a breakdown if known, of 5.7 compatible powders. Most of the powders discussed here are ones I do not have. I was hoping somone compiled a list.

And if there were some known loadings for the various powders.

I greatly appreciate allowing me to join your forum. Being involved with training, the 5.7 seems to be the very best in offering velocity, light recoil, and being able to shoot thin jacketed varmint bullets...Not to mention incredible capacity!!
Me along with Tony at C&C Firearms will be spreading the 5.7 gospel, and encouraging membership and participation at this fine forum.

Again, thank you in advance for any and all information provided.

Welcome aboard. Read the threads in the reloading section and you will find a great deal of information on the 5.7 loads.

Extremely kind of you. I look forward to learning from all of you about this wonderful pistol.

This forum has certainly heightened my excitement over having purchased a 5.7.
I have surprised myself over the thought of actually selling one of my Glocks, due to the sense the 5.7 will be the ONLY pistol I plan on carrying.

One other question...Anyone knows if the 5.7 is allowed for IPSC competition? Not concerned with state level, more local competition. And is it classified as a minor.

Thanks again for taking time to read my post...........

You don't have to use mag pistol primers but it looks like there the best for obtaining the highest velocitys.

Thank you very much there Lord of War. I tried the same thing when I realized after I posted there was a thread established for reloading this fine pistol. I greatly appreciate all your efforts to help me..

The 35gr v max doesn't look right. It looks too short, it doesn't look factory like the 40gr v max look. I loaded a couple of those but I like 40gr better in reload and 195 factory load
