I don't know if any manufactures make any tungsten cored bullets in 22 caliber, for such a small caliber and cost effectiveness the standard sa106 steel grade seems to be the best armor piercer economacally.

I am certain somewhere along the line it has been brought up and probably researched and maybe there have been some developed but like stated above economically it just does not make sense to many cons and not enough pros.

They are actually very easy to make.

Also not that expensive other then all the regulatory BS.

Researched it and came up with a few different ways over the years.

I came across the website for that custom 5.7x28 ammo. The stuff is priced per round! A bit to rich for my blood!! :)

Dayum. So, hypothetically speaking, if I had a box of S5 rounds... by their #s, it would go for... a lot.

Hypothetically.

If the FUBAR incendiary rounds are the ones from Clarks Custom Cartridge they use 1x fired brass.

You would not believe what people are willing to pay for a box of 50 of the original FN SS190.

I have seen bids over 500.00 and for a box of the L191 over 700.00.

Nobody even responded regarding the ELP 5.7 ammo. It's on collector sites. Just thought the whole Tungsten core and the other rounds that have liquid silver in them are nuts. They are advertising a CLASS 3 round for the 5.7 supposedly developed for " the greatest possible immediate impact to creatures with high tolerance nervous systems like the crocodile " - these rounds are insane if they exist - http://www.gunauction.com/buy/12890843#" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Hopefully you do realize that site is for folks who want to add ammo to a collection and not buy a bunch of it to shoot.

Does it really cost that much to make some of what he is making or is he just trying to capitalize on some peoples quest for exotic 5.7.

No not really.

Running a 5 cent drill bit through bullet is cheap.

I can buy dirt cheap copper cups drop in tungsten rod sections and form with one die in one movement into a bullet.

I can also take those same cups and drop in aluminum rod sections and create my own version of the S4 bullet.
Which I have and plan on doing more of once my brass project is out of the way.

If the creator knew how to actually manufacture bullets they wouldn't be making all the silly crap with drill bits.

Could be wrong but I think he meant "very special" in a sarcastic way.

If it were me, I would make these very special cartridges & they would be totally obscure, make wild claims, & sell them for a huge mark up.

I guess it's hard to tell since he's come up with so many of them, and is selling them at a premium, but has anyone seriously shot any of this stuff?

Well, then there's this.
