This is good new any new 5.7 is good as this finnaly push ammo makers to make good ammo for it lol.. Gold dot is now making HP ammo for which ..This is sorly needed as most current ammo is either weak FMJ or "sporting " round that is about the same ..The red box stuff is about the only great option for SD for a while ( at least one that could easily be bought as it was not AP ammo) and it was still LEO only ( not legal issues just FN being FN lol ) ...
Rember 5.7 was made for PDW weapons expressly to go though USSR CRISAT armor in the 80s ...So it takes a little bit of tinkering to make a good SD civil legal round for it imop as the org round was again made as a pure FMJ very harden core AP round
I had an FN 5.7 pistol with 30 round magazines and an AR-5.7 rifle with the 50 round magazines before Sandy Hook. They were fun range toys. The civilian available ammo has about the same muzzle energy as a .38 special out of a revolver. The only saving grace is it penetrates like an icepick. Right after Sandy Hook, I got an offer I couldn't refuse.
