5.7x28mm Comparisons

Some friends and I were talking about the 5.7x28mm round on Saturday. As the only one of the group to actually see and handle a 5.7x28mm round, I decided take a couple of photos for comparison.

.22LR, .22WMR, 5.7x28mm, 5.56x45mm

.22LR, .22WMR, 5.7x28mm, 5.56x45mm

.22LR, .22WMR, 5.7x28mm, 5.56x45mm

.22LR, .22WMR, 5.7x28mm, 5.56x45mm

The 5.7x28mm round is available in 28, 31, 40, and 55gr bullet weights.

Even though I was the only one of the group to have first hand experience with the round, I’ve actually never shot the FN Five Seven. A friend can’t say enough good things about his Five Seven however. From what I hear of the 5.7x28mm round, firing it from a pistol is not noticeably different than a .22WMR (.22 magnum) round. I really can’t tell much difference in the .22LR when comparing it to the .22WMR, so I’d assume that the 5.7x28mm basically feels like you’re shooting a .22LR out of the gun.

  2. I like mine. Wish Savage would make the bolt rifle they were talking about.
    Would like to hear about more real world shooting involving civilian ammo
