    yeah I guess that was misleading.

    because its a shitty round. I know its a shitty round and you know its a shitty round.

    but when essentially shooting near-defenseless unarmed and unsuspecting fish in a barrel like that so to speak, combined with its low recoil and high magazine capacity, it turned out to be pretty deadly. i'd say this is about the only situation where i would trust 5.7 to take someone down.

    and so the :rolleyes: is for all the noobs that are sure to come here and inquire about 5.7's "lethal" and "modern" performance.

    Yea but high fragmenting rounds tend to be harder to just stitch up
     
  15. Yeah, and there are fragmenting rounds available in other chamberings that are much more effective, you know, like DocGKR points out. Anyways, the MV through the fiveseven isn't very fast.
     
  16. According to Wikipedia the 40gr V-max (what you'll find in commercial ammo) isn't even doing 2,000fps out of a 10.35" barrel. And it's only going ~1750 out of the pistol. Not exactly earth shattering performance.

    I think he means people shot by base cops or MPs. No, I had not heard that.
