    5.7x28mm RELOAD DATA

    YOU LOAD/RELOAD AT YOUR OWN RISK I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF YOU BLOW YOUR GUN UP OR HURT YOUR SELF Your reloading procedures are beyond my control. I am not be responsible for your gun or your life /limbs/safty. As with ANY reloading project, start low and work up to almost a maximum load you should never load to the maximum since this is very dangerous.

    I need some advice on a couple of things regarding the reloading of the 5.7x28. First, what kind of primers does it take (small pistol or small rifle)? Second, is it possible to reload with heavier bullets than what's listed above (55 gr., 60 gr., 65 gr.) for subsonic rounds?

    On the Plains of Hesitation lie the blackened bones of countless millions , who at the dawn of victory, sat down to rest, and resting, died.

    I played a little with blue dot a few months ago, 10"bbl PS90 , cci 400 primers, 50 gr win PSP, just decided to post pic , since typing isnt so great, look at the pic and you will see handwriting isnt much better.

    all ejected nicely, very pleased with the light loads at aprox 700 fps , work great thru the can here in the yard.



    water filled cans at the three velocities for comparison, not at all scientific but gives a decent representation of performance on crow sized varmints

    I have been experimenting more this morning with blue dot and 62 gr speer projectiles and with 3.2 grs am getting avg 940 fps thru the 10" bbl with suppressor. Seem to be very quite and accurate

    I've only experimented a little bit, but I used the data from Accurate's site, only the start load of 5.7 grns of No. 5 powder with the 45grn sierra FB SP bullet, and WSR primers. Brass was once fired SS197SR's.

    Initially, with the 45grn Sierra, there was a lot of case neck/shoulder expansion, and recoil was "noticable". Even though the newer bullets I loaded were only 5grns heavier, the commercially available bullets in this weight made me a little uncomfortable.

    We reduced the load, and said effects lessened somewhat, but performance was not great. My friend who was coaching me at the time, gave me a vintage box of 40grn Sierra soft point bullets to try(can't remember which ones, I'm at work and the box is somwhere at home). Using the data for the 45grn bullets, the recoil, effects on the cases, and performance down range were more like the factory stuff I shot out of the box. I don't own a chrono, so I have no idea what velocities I was getting, but there were no adverse effects on the gun.
