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 part of Belgium’s 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 verisons of this cartridge and it seems every time FN imports
ammunition into the U.S.A., another verison is being introduced.
As a web-site interested in supporting the single cartridge collector, many of
the below items are strictly limited to one cartridge
If it says limit one cartridge, don't order more, or your order will be canceled.

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this round has been discontinued and it has been replaced by SS195LF.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, year 2004

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. Only a few boxes available, I can special
order boxes or cases. e-mail me. Dates may vary, currently 2004..

The polycarbonate tip in the V-Max bullet enhances expansion of the bullet.

The SS197SR cartridge uses the same 40-grain (2.6 g) .224 inch (5.7 mm)
Hornady V-Max projectile as the SS196SR, but it is loaded for a slightly
higher muzzle velocity. The bullets have a blue-colored polycarbonate tip.
