I was talking to an friend of a friend about the 5.7 and he said
Help me prove him wrong
I have a better idea: get new friends
wow, only the 1000th time this has been debated on this forum alone
Seriously, look at a .22 Magnum round. It's pushing the same size and weight projectile to the same velocity. The 5.7x28 is a novelty round.
Ballistics gel shows that fmj 9mm will do more damage than 5.7x28, ask him to show his work.
I wouldnt call it the same as a 22magnum as it reaches faster speeds in a 9" barrel vs an 18" barrel in a 22 magnum
I still dont want to be shot by it
makes a good varmint round
If your zero happens to be just where the varmint is. Inside 100 yards you're within about an inch, with a 100 yard zero. Past 100 yards, the thing drops like a rock.
EDIT: What would you use to varmint? A PS90?
we were out at my buddy's hunting land and one of our friends had his five seven on him when we saw an armadillo after the 10th shot it was still alive so my other buddy shot it with his 410 judge. Im not saying it cant kill someone but i dont think it will be my first pick when the zombies come
AR son, with a 50rnd mag
I forgot that they make those conversions. For the price of 5.7 ammo though, I'd rather just stick with the much more useful 5.56 round.
I only hit it twice and they both went straight through.
Price of 556 is so crazy that 5.7 isn't that bad anymore. The problem is that's like saying my broken hand doesn't hurt as bad since I broke my foot..
Most of what I can find puts 5.7 similar in price to PMC 5.56 or equivalent plinking loads.
ok so you only hit it 2 times out of 20 what dose that say
2/13 dickhead. It was my first "kill". What can I say? I got excited.
Alex hit it twice and it was me who put it down with a 65gr golddot 40 S&W. That left a mess.
Why do we have to use real names on the interwebs?
I'm going to find you now, Alex.
Urge to post full name, SSN, address and driver's license number rising....
You can reload 556 to cut down on some of the cost but I haven't heard of anyone reloading 5.7
Never saw the KB thread at the firingline?
