right now there is just too many folks trying to make a buck a shot on 5.7 ammo.....they have also released SS195LF to the public, its SS192 with lead free primers loaded to the velocity and same bullet. it will take a while longer for ammo prices to return to under 20.00 a box from most sellers

I fired the full range loads with the AA7, sent the data to Johan, and this is the response I received:

Thanks for the feedback and co-operation.
You're latest data shows that AA 7 is closer to the factory powder than AA5.
The 6.9grains load is about were you should settle for good all round performance.
You can experiment with AA5 if you want, but I would be reluctant.
Since this is such a sensitive caliber the faster powder will even be less forgiving.
You will have to extremely careful, because things will happen much faster.
I suggest between 5.0 and 6.2grains of AA 5.


The load information:

Hornady V-Max 35 grain
6.9 grains AA7
CCI 400 Primer (small rifle)
COL: 1.46 inches
Case trimmed to 1.127
1884 FPS

Jere is a big quistion??? I have a 5.7MM Johnson /22 spitfire , It is my M-1 carbine IMI put out a barrel and receiver and i bought it, It replaced my 30 carbine reciever and barrel, the 5.7MM that i use is a 30 carbine round necked down to a 22 cal 40 grain up to 50 grain bullet, is this the same round that is used in the FN 5.7,?? I still have the 30 carbine barrel and reciever and I got the dies for reloading from RCBS, all the other parts are inter changeable the Die i have also necks down the 30 carbine round.
I was talking to someone on the 1919A4 board and they said the FN 5.7 is a 32 cal case necked down?? so if that is the case then their are 2 5.7 rounds going around!!!

I've located a custom reloaded that can provide 5.7x33mm ammo for the M1 Carbine who is interested in how many enthusiasts would be interested in placing orders for ammo in lots of 250 rounds or more? There are also a number of us working on a project of getting a 1911 prototype built to mass produce! Anyone interested? Let me know!
