SS195LF lead-free hollow-points produce speeds in excess of 2,300 feet per second, create over 340 foot-pounds of energy, and are fully lead-free (even the primers do not contain lead to evaporate), making them perfect for use on indoor ranges. At 1900 feet per second, AE5728A total metal jackets (TMJ) use a 40 gram lead bullet entirely encased in copper to generate over 320 foot-pounds of energy. The SS197SR sports round propels a blue Hornady V-Max bullet with a polymer tip at 1950 feet per second. The 5.7x28mm sports round is the optimal option for hunting and self-defense due to its expanding bullet design and 340 foot-pounds of force. This round’s case size and relatively tiny, lightweight bullet enable it to offer large capacity, high velocity, and remarkable accuracy at near to intermediate range in all platforms.

What Caliber is the FN 5.7x28mm?

The bullet diameter of the FN 5.7x28mm is 0.224 inches. Although it is mainly a handgun cartridge, its bullet diameter is comparable to that of popular rifle cartridges such as the.22 Long Rifle and.223 Remington. One of the closest cartridges is the.22 WMR, however in terms of diameter, the.25 Auto is probably the closest handgun cartridge. In contrast, its velocity outperforms the.25 Auto in every way.

What is the “FN” For?

The FN in its name refers for “Fabrique Nationale,” as in Belgian guns maker Fabrique Nationale Herstal (National Factory of Herstal). At the request of NATO, this business designed the cartridge to improve the range, accuracy, and terminal performance of service sidearms. The objective was to develop a pistol bullet with a faster velocity that could overcome opponent body armor and other obstacles.

What is the Purpose of the “Bottleneck” Design?

Aerodynamics. The bottleneck design of the bullet allows for greater air resistance. This is why the FN 5.7x28mm is a popular round for long-distance handgun target shooting. Combined with muzzle velocities around 2,000 feet per second and relatively light bullets, the FN 5.7x28mm has one of the straightest trajectories among all handgun cartridges.

How Does the FN 5.7x28mm Compare to the 5.56x45mm (.223 Winchester)?

Despite the fact that these cartridges serve distinct functions, their comparable bullet diameter means they are often compared. The.223 Winchester, on the other hand, has become one of the most popular high-velocity target-shooting cartridges. The FN 5.7x28mm is much shorter than the.223 Remington, carries bullets that are often smaller, and does not attain the high speeds of the.223 Remington, which typically exceeds 3,000 feet per second.

How Does the FN 5.7x28mm Compare to the .25 ACP?

The FN 5.7x28mm is a far more rapid and powerful cartridge than the.25 ACP. The FN 5.7x28mm has speeds exceeding 2,000 feet per second, while the.25 ACP is often between 750 and 900 feet per second, resulting in far more accurate long-range trajectories for the FN offering.

What Types of Firearms Generally Take the FN 5.7x28mm

Pistols. This cartridge was designed mainly for semiautomatic pistols that were used by NATO soldiers. There are some rifles that shoot this cartridge, but they are fairly rare.

Is the FN 5.7x28mm Enough for Self Defense?

Given that the FN 5.7x28mm was designed for NATO troops, the answer seems to be affirmative. However, the cartridge was designed to produce high-velocity armor penetration, something the normal concealed-carry user does not need. Personal defense seldom, if ever, necessitates long-range shooting.
