Tungsten cored bullets

Post by bruteandbear1 » 09 Feb 2015, 09:07

So me and my brother and dad went out to a spokane valley shooting range and when I started shooting my five seven the range master came up and asked "hey is that a FN FIVE SEVEN". I replied yes it is, he said you know the military has a 45 grain tungsten cored bullet they use. I said no they don't they have the ss190, L191, ss198 etc. He assured himself that he was right and I was right. So I asked him do you own a FSN? Do you reload the 5.7x28mm? Do you research the caliber and the handgun? He says well no I just now it is a tungsten core it even has a black tip on it. I just started laughing and said bro that's the ss190 31 grain FMJ aluminum core and steel sa106 mild steel core buddy. So I wanted to make sure there is not a 45 grain tungsten cored bullet that FN makes now for the military, can anyone chime in? I have tried googling it and can not find anything at all about a 45 grain tungsten cored bullet. I think he is just an idiot or very ignorant.

bruteandbear,

Think your right. I haven't heard of a tungsten core penetrator round, let alone a 45 grainer!

I know Barnes has tungsten cored bullets but not in this caliber, the smallest on their website is for the .270

People who work in gun shops/ranges ALWAYS know what they're talking about. Why would you even question it?

I was in a shop in Daytona when I witnessed the guy behind the counter, who was trying to sell a used FsN, explain that it's called a cop-killer gun because "you could line up 5 people and the (unspecified) round would easily go through all 5."

So we got that goin' for us...

That's nothing. We saw Indiana Jones do that with a Luger 9mm in The Last Crusade.

Hahaha I just don't get why they can't just be honest and say Hey man I don't know to much about the platform instead of trying to BS a guy who eats, sleeps and breathes Five Seven.

Gun owners are just people who own guns, sir.

If you enjoy firearms, and don't want to meet overly stupid people, avoid 1. Public gun ranges 2. Gun shops 3. Gun shows
Never attribute to malice that which can be explained by stupidity.
The shooter will always matter more than the gear ever will.
Stop relying on others to do the work for you.
Shoot more, worry less.

Which is exactly why I am stocking up on refrigerators for all my loved ones.



Between that, my FsN with 45gr tungsten core (and T.I.T.S.N.A.S.S.) rounds, I'm gonna be the cockroach on the block.

If there was a 45 grain tungsten cored bullet for the 5.7x28mm weapon that the military uses it would be listed with the other bullets like the ss190, L191, ss198 etc. Even if it was not listed it would have made its way on this forum. So its safe to say FNH does not make a 45 grain tungsten cored bullet fir the military.
I am not talking about a mom and pop shop. I am talking about a Commercially made 45 grain tungsten cored bullet for the military.

I think it would simply cost to much to produce for what it is. That is something You could look at Jay for LEO/MIL.

Already have and it's pretty cheap to make. The paperwork though. Type 10 FFL costs to much money.

Ha, you guys forgot the ELP 40 grain Tungsten HSS Stinger! http://www.gunauction.com/buy/12890843#" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Of course, I think it's a joke, so anyone who didn't catch the sarcasm immediately, my apologies. We all know the backstory of ELP & Synergy Business Development.
