5.7x28mm Belgian

Postby craigt » Fri Mar 26, 2004 10:50 pm

Greetings again,
I recently aquired a reasonably recently produced 5.7x28mm cartridge
with a white tip that I have been unable to identify.
It has a GMCS projectile, h/s 5.7x28 FNB 01
If anybody has any info regarding projectile type/model etc.
Cheers
craigt

If the P90 round has a white tip then it's suppose to be a Sub-Sonic round:-

Sb 193, sub-sonic round. This round was designed for silenced P90s. the Sb 193 is identified by a white bullet tip.

Here's an excellent site from the Netherlands about P90 ammo.
