FN 5.7

FN 5.7x28mm ammo was created 1990 by Fabrique Nationale d’Herstal (FN) in a bid to replace the 9x19mm parabellum for NATO use. The centerfired cartridge features a rimless bottleneck design and utilizes a 5.7mm (.224”) projectile. With a total cartridge weight of roughly 93 grains, the FN 5.7x28mm weighs about half as much as 9x19mm parabellum, and produces 30% less recoil. The round’s flat trajectory allows for an effective range of 200 meters from a PDW and 50 meters from a pistol with a maximum range of over 1,500 meters from either platform.

Commercially, the FN 5.7x28 is available in several varieties. SS195LF lead-free hollow-points deliver velocities over 2,300 feet per second, generate over 340 foot pounds of energy and are completely lead-free (even the primers contain no lead to vaporize), making them ideal for use at indoor ranges. AE5728A total metal jackets (TMJ) utilize a 40 grain lead bullet, completely surrounded in copper, to produce over 320 foot pounds of energy at 1900 fps. Finally, the SS197SR sporting round propels a blue polymer-tipped Hornady V-Max bullet at 1950 fps. With a proven, expanding bullet design and 340 foot pounds of energy, the 5.7x28mm sporting round is the all-around choice for hunting and personal defense.

Designed to be used in rifles, personal defense weapons as well as pistols, this round’s case dimensions and relatively small, lightweight bullet allow it to deliver high capacity, high velocity and impressive accuracy at close to intermediate distances in any platform.
