    honestly just look at the casing of those rounds they’re way to big for the pistol

    That would be a 5-7, and that looks like the correct ammo.

    Yeah, that’s what makes the FiveSeven unique. (They have a strange way of capitalizing it I think, but whatever, I don’t remember it)

    I can imagine its wrong, but the wiki says the blue tip is for the more current sporting rounds, not tracers. I don’t really know what that means, but I wanted my mad internet skills to say something smart and correct some in a teachingly manner.

    Blue tips don’t indicate tracers anyway. red/int’l orange tips do.

    No, think about it, if it’s hollow point, then there IS NO POINT, it’s HOLLOW. I love the Five-seveN, 5.7mm armor piercing bullets, 20 rounds per magazine, mmmmmmm……

    It uses that ammo because it was meant to go with the p-90,because it uses the same ammo, and originally was sometimes sold as a package. Both guns are by FN, and use 5.7x28mm ammo (www.myconfinedspace.com/2007/10/18/p-90-smg/) world.guns.ru/handguns/hg18-e.htm from guns.ru: “The Five-seveN pistol was designed by FN company (Belgium) as a complimentary sidearm for the P90 submachine-gun. The P90 and Five-seveN share the same ammunition, the 5.7x28mm SS190 cartridge. The SS190 ammunition looks like scaled down 5.56mm NATO round and boosts the 2.02 gramm (31 grains) pointed steel and alluminium core bullet to the muzzle velocity of 650 meters per second… Read more »

    Clearly, the blue tip means it’s a DU round. It’s specialized to go through tank armor. It’s the easy to use infantry answer to tanks. No need to carry around those heavy anti-tank rockets anymore.

    Silver, you have got to be fucking kidding. A depleted uranium round used to penetrate tank armor!? Your arm will freakin blow off your shoulder if you fire something like that! Its a sporting round! SS197SR Sporting Round Fiocchi currently manufactures SS197SR under contract for FN Herstal. 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. The first SS197SR boxes exhibit the modern FN blue and black colored packaging as shown in the… Read more »
