    SS195LF was discontinued or not?

    Hey, Just a quick question, I though the the SS195lf had been discontinued a while back. But recently I ordered some of them from MGW, and the lot is from 2020.
    Anyone knows if they started manufacturing it again or so? I am just curious.

    Who said it was discontinued? I heard rumors of it, but never remember the source of that

    I've only started using 5.7 in January this year, up until now most if not all website were showing them as discontinued. A local gun store also told me they couldn't get them anymore so I don't know. I always thought they were gone

    4 times a year lots of it are released, along with SS198 from Belgium. It's a pain in the for customers but high levels of customer service aren't on FNH's priority list. With ammo demands for Ruger I doubt they will increase production to sell more ammo for sme one else's gun.

    What’s the point of 195 when 198 exists?

    Until recently, the SS198LF was not available for sale to the general public. Now, I agree. Go with the SS198LF. However, I still like my white bos SS195 that I have from years ago......

    Sometimes vendors that carry SS198 make it a bit tougher to obtain.

    So retailers can charge more for it.

    FN segregates commercial and LE products. SS195 is for commercial sales. SS198 is for LE sales, and is so marked. Other than the green tip on 198 and the packaging it is my opinion that they are the same. Same bullet weight and same velocity, at least out of my guns over my chronographs. YMMV.
