5.7 x 28mm FN
No other caliber in recent times has gained such interest as the 5.7x28mm.
Developed in the late 1980s, the 5.7x28mm cartridge is from FN Herstal (Fabrique Nationale de Herstal)
Small Arms Innovative Weapons Systems, which uses  FN Five Seven Pistols and some very
unusual
looking "bullpup"style carbines.
There are many different verisons of these firearms, which we will leave to the gun sites, as we
are
concerned mostly with the ammunition as cartridge collectors.
The 5.7x28mm ammunition is lighter, recoils less than comparative 9mm weapons and
penetrates over 48
layers of kevlar at 200 meters with the ( SS90 AP ) FMJ projectile.
.
There are many versions of this cartridge and it seems everytime
FN imports ammunition into the U.S.A., another version is being
introduced
.

SS90 FMJ "AP" Projectile
,
An early prototype round, it used a lightweight 23-grain (1.5 g) full metal jacket bullet with a polymer
core. It was abandoned in 1994 in favor of the heavier SS190 projectile, which has greater potential for
accuracy and penetration, as well as being shorter and thus easier to fit in FN's then-upcoming
Five-seven pistol, as it only worked in the carbine, and FN
wanted a cartridge for both pistol and
carbine weapons.

"Steel Core" ~ "AP" ~  Projectile
The SS190 " Black Tip" Projectile is designated as Armor Piercing (AP) ammunition, designed to
penetrate body armor.
The SS190 bullet has a steel penetrator and an aluminum core.
This is legal as it was imported before the ban to civilians took effect.
This is strictly for cartridge collectors ! (FNH- 99) H/S,
Its sale to civilians is restricted, but this is 1999 pre-ban stock.

The now obsolete SS192 ammunition uses a 28-grain (1.8g) unmarked hollow tip, with an aluminum
core. SS192 can be differentiated from SS195LF (lead-free - see above) by the brass-colored primer.
Production of this round has been discontinued and it has been replaced by SS195LF. FNH USA has
informed FTB that SS192 is no longer imported for commercial sale to the United States (FNH 04) H/S,

Combustible chemicals packed in the rear of the projectile create a contrail visible up to 200 meters.
The SS191's ballistics are almost identical to those of the SS190. SS191 tracer ammunition has a red tip.
It was previously designated "L191". Its sale to civilians is restricted. (FNH 97)H/S

SS191 Tracer AP Projectile
.
.
.
The SS193 cartridge features a 55-grain (3.6 g) Sierra Game King FMJBT (Full Metal Jacket Boat Tail)
projectile. The SS193's low muzzle velocity eliminates the distinctive "crack" created by supersonic
rounds when used in conjunction with the P90 Gemtech sound suppressor.
The SS193 suffers from greatly reduced penetration and range, but benefits from slightly lower recoil.
The white colored bullet tip can identify SS193 subsonic ammunition. It was previously designated
"Sb193." Its sale to civilians is restricted, but this is pre-ban (FNH 00) H/S,  2000 ammunition

SS195 L.F. Standard Round

The SS195LF cartridge features a lead-free primer and lead-free bullet with similar ballistics to the
SS192 round. It features a .224 inch (5.7 mm) 28-grain (1.77g) copper jacketed aluminum core bullet.
The SS195LF cartridge may be identified by the unmarked, hollow void at the tip and the
silver-colored lead-free primer.
