Re: P90 5.7 x 28 v.s. MP7 4.6 x 30 ammo

Check this out. Nice read. https://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2016/10/24/modern-personal-defense-weapon-calibers-4-6x30mm-hk/ I also heard that the MP7 is going to be built in 5.7mm but in full-auto only. No Semi-auto models will be built. That means they will not be available for civilians in the...

Re: 50 Gr Combined Ballistics Load

How about this load he posted “on the other board”.... Subsonic, usually cycles, 45 grain tracer, ~3.0 grain trail boss (doughnut powder) It is just lightly compressed, 3.6 gn, or full to the brim, seems to work best. Pretty compressed, but whatever... Some crack above sonic, but usually not. Cheap ...

Re: Lee sizer die 5.7x28

Try Huntington Die Specialties, I know they did offer custom dies. Many years ago I had a Powder Springs MAC-11 .380, back in those days .380 brass was almost impossible to come by so I had Huntington Die Specialties send me a .380 trim Die. I was trimming 5.56 cases down to .380 length, then I had ...

Re: FiveseveN IOM Prototype...

If it's an actual documented PROTOTYPE, it should be a couple of thousand dollars.

A friend of mine purchased the second .44 Automag Prototype a couple of years ago and paid $8,000.00. But keep in mind a "run of the mill" Automag is around $4,000.00.

What primer?

I'm looking to go SLIGHTLY hotter than a factory SS197 load.

I'm going to be using Hornady 40 gr Z-Max bullets
True Blue powder
But I have Winchester Small Rifle primers "in stock", but I've seen loading data recommending both pistol & rifle primers.

BTW, I'm thinking 5.2 grains of True Blue.

NEW (2015) 5.7X28 handgun

Found this in a post on the "other" Forum...

Unfortunately it's not currently imported into the U.S.

It's manufactured in the Ukraine

Re: Possibility of an "Echo" Trigger for the PS90?

The Franklin Armory Gen III Binary Trigger doesn't require a "Trip" for it to operate.

I wasn't even considering the Fostech Echo.

Re: Possibility of an "Echo" Trigger for the PS90?

In theory it shouldn't be a very long reach to achieve this. As many PS90 owners are aware, the FN PS90 trigger group is almost an exact copy of the Steyr AUG trigger pack, in fact PS90 packs have been retrofitted with AUG parts. Corvus Definsio Is releasing an aluminum chassis that inserts into the...

Re: Range report: First time out with new FsN MkII and PS90

O.K., that's it!

I going to order an Elite Ammunition chamber gauge and check EVERY round of ammo that I'm going to carry before loading it into the magazines.

Way too many reports of issues with 5.7 ammo.

Glock is also the "only pistol of it's kind"...and it's MOSTLY made of traditional steel.

The FsN is expensive because we'll PAY IT!
The frame is by far mostly polymer except for the rails molded into the polymer.

Re: Min Velocity for Reliable Expansion w 40gr VMax?

I do believe that the V Max bullet design has changed.

Several years ago Hornady stated on their L.E. web site that .223 40 gr Urban TAP shouldn't be used in a barrel with a faster twist than 1/9". They changed that later to 1/7".

Re: Just purchased a 57 MKII. I just had some general quest

I seem to recall a posting about a FiveseveN that COULDN'T be brought on target it was so far off and FN wound up replacing the pistol.

And as you have discovered, the P.O.I. is EXTREMELY different between SS197 & SS198.

SS198 is quite a bit faster and the projectile is over 25% lighter.

Well they will have competition very soon. A major firearms manufacture that everyone on this forum has heard of is finalizing their 5.7 mil spec pistol.

They are charging what the market will bear. I foresee the price continuing to slowly raise until sales slow.
