Anyone know of a ballistic test of the a Sinterfire Pistol?

Has a ballistic test ever been done with a Sinterfire round in the 5.7 pistol, hopefully through a layer of denim and into a gel block. I have seen tests done when fired from a rifle, but none at the lower velocity of a 5.7 pistol. I would also be interested in your opinion of this bullet.

I have not seen one.

I consistently test IIIA backed by clay against the 5.7x28mm round.

If someone wanted to send in a Sinterfire round, I could test it in the next cycle. I gave away non-loaded Sinterfires back when and have none.

Yes.


For a while there was a 35gr version. They stopped making them but before they did we bought all of them. They where used for our Sintor round.


While I think someone did some testing I never did since I considered it waste of time.

I created these rounds for practice where backstops had limitations like some LEO Shoot houses.

I launched them from the FsN at 2200fps so point of impact really did not change from all of our carry rounds.

With the innate issue of all types of sintered bullets cracking at the case mouth while in the magazine using these for anything other then practice, I FEEL, is stupid. YMMV.

Your tests were done on a lighter bullet than is currently available. At the moment the 36gr are available. So maybe the results would be different than your previous experience .

All sinterfire bullets in all calibers are prone to cracking.


What be the point of using them?

Interesting Jay, I'll check with Sinterfire and see what they say

Bazz, where did you find 36s? I've got 42s.

Blue, PM me where to send a round, or how ever many you need. I worked up a nice plinking load at around 1700 on Sunday, not even getting primer nipples with AA7.
