    Perhaps you do lose some energy from lighter material. However, we are talking about 2,100+ fps velocity from a 4.9 inch barrel (Five-seveN) and 2,300+ fps from 10 inch barrel (P90).

    The projectile is nose heavy - it, in essence, is engineered for superior tumbling characteristics once it pierces flesh without over penetration.

    The wound tract looks like this:

    If you can believe adverts, the projectile will produce about the same wound profile even after penetrating metal/Kevlar, but won't exit an unarmored target even as close as 10m.

    If they engineer a controlled expansion projectile, that round would be pretty gruesome - considering it's a handgun with practically no recoil.

    I'm bringing my Five Seven to KC, if anyone is interested in firing it.

    P90's haven't come in yet, and i'm on the waiting list.

    Did they already do this with blended-metal 9mm or was that all hype?

    That's what I meant. But, 9x19mm velocity is more like 1,100+ fps. From what I understand, damage from hydrostatic shock - the supersonic shock wave of the projectile - is negligible at that velocity. (Duh Tom! Mach 1 is 1,132 fps at sea level.)


    (Okay, that does it! I'm going to do whatever it takes to get a pistol permit here in NYC. Anybody need a diamond courier? I'll do the job for free.)

    That probably the only way. Remember in liberal states, posessions is worth more then life. (I can carry a pistol to protect gold coins, but not to protect myself).

    Yeah, but life's pretty expensive as it is around here - not at all like how cheap a life is in the middle of fucking nowhere. :smile:

    So effectively they have engineered a round to do what the original 5.56 rounds did in vietnam. That should hit like a ton of bricks. I am still not sure about the 57 being a very good reound for home defense due to the high cost of ammo. If it costs a bunch to shoot you are less likely to spend the time really getting familiar with it to be effective. Practice > firepower.

    Anthony how much does a box of 5.7 cost? I have found it very expensive $25+ a box! That is when I have found it. I would be very reluctant to purchase a gun fo 800 the ammo at 25 a box if i was only useing it for self defense. you can buy a 45acp here in colorado for 450ish boxes of ammo range from $10-19. A home defender shotgun runs 250ish and shells cost $15 a box.

    Somthing else to consider

    That's about right, 25 bucks for a box of 50. Or, .50 cents per round. I've fired a few hudred dollars worth of ammo easy. This is also for the ss196 ammo, which isn't the 2200fps armor piercing roundi. Though at 1800fps plus, still a viable round that is a hollow point.

    PT,

    Sorry bro, I don't reload, so no info on that.

    I feel sorry for the prarie dogs if you're gonna use this, but then again, they are rodents. :)
