Load Data for FN 5.7 x 28mm USG & IOM pistols.

***Not for P90 Machine gun !***

**************************************

*********Disclaimer***** Procede with caution!

Please always use caution and safety when reloading.

These loads below are for experienced reloaders.

I am not, nor any one I know responsable for your safety!

Safety First!! Thanks--

***************************************************

This data is "NOT" to be considered absolute as it was not developed in a

pressure barrel, but in the actual hand gun.

This Data comes from a very experienced reloader.

Since there was no baseline data to start from, he said it took him

over 220 different loads to get this data.

He said he tried 17 different powders in his testing

and spent five months before he found the duplicate load.

He tried bullets from 30 gr to 62 grain.

And 5 different brands of primers.

Each load was a 20 round average,

unless it was very obvious that it was not even close to a good load.

*******************************************************

Factory duplicate load for SS192 round is:

7.0 grains of Accurate Number 9, Hornady V-Max 35 grain bullet,

CCI Small Pistol Magnum Primer.

This load yielded a 20 round average of 2420 FPS on a

CED Mellinium Chronograph with Infrared sensors @ 20 ft from muzzle.

Group accuracy of 4 inch circle at 100 YARDS, Shot from a bench rest.

It shot virtually a flat trajectory !

DO NOT LOAD THIS ROUND ANY MORE THAT 7.1 GR.

OR ANY LOWER THAN 6.9 GR.

More will crater the primer. Less will detonate with uncontrolable pressures.

Use of rifle primers will lead to misfires due to light firing pin energy

in this gun.

**************************************************************

Load for duplication of NEW SS196 SR round is:

6.6 grains of Accurate Number 9, 55 gr FMJBT Sierra Bullet,

CCI Small Pistol Magnum Primer.

This load yielded a 20 round average of 1450 FPS on a

CED Mellinium Chronograph with Infrared sensors @ 20 ft from muzzle.

Group accuracy of 7 inch circle at 100 YARDS, Shot from a bench rest.

It shot 3 inches low of bullseye ! It was One inch low at 50 Yards.

DO NOT LOAD THIS ROUND ANY MORE THAT 6.8 GR.

OR ANY LOWER THAN 6.5 GR. More will crater the primer.

Less will detonate with uncontrolable pressures.

Use of rifle primers will lead to misfires due to light firing pin energy

in this gun.

Please use extreme care when using this data.

Accuracy of this load with this powder can NOT be Stressed enough !

Accuracy with this powder is a MUST !

It will shoot beautifully when loaded properly !

***************************************

Did a test the 5.7 on a new second chance stage 4 vest,

wrapped around a 55 gallon plastic drum.

Fired 10 rounds each of, SS192, SS195LF,

and the above load for 35gr V-Max load from 50 feet, and all went thru the vest,

thru the barrel both sides, and thru the vest again !

Enjoy ! Now shooting the 5.7 is affordable again…
