Doesn't even manage to exit the block! 12in is min for FBI spec even for handgun ammunition. How is that any different than 9mm, .40 or .45 hollow points except NOT penetrating to a minimum of 12"?
So we have the following:
1. 5 years of use and multiple OIS (Officer Involved Shootings) from NY SWAT with first hand knowledge from Dr. Gary Roberts stating how poorly it performed in his 2013 Terminal Performance Facts
2. SIX different terminal performance studies from the 1990's up through 2013 on this cartridge with various loads stating it performs very poorly
3. Data literally on the FN forums from someone who tested S197 from both a 16" barreled PS90 and a 5" barreled FiveSeven
4. The data above from another person who tested S195, S197 and S198 all of which failed to even penetrate 12" with wounds no different than 9mm HP's
And I'm just some crazy copy and paste guy who has no idea of what he's talking about? Please enlighten us ALL with your evidence, show us all how much proof, all of your information, your sources, your first hand knowledge of why all of this is wrong. Show me why Martin Fackler, Gary Roberts, Pat McNamera and the tests above are all wrong. Show me the magic physics defying design of the wonder 5.7mm.
Gary Roberts assessment sums it all up:
The recent trend toward small caliber PDW’s is somewhat bizarre.
