Cast Bullet Assn is the first place I'm going to see if any subscriber has ever tried shooting cast bullets in the 5.7x28 case.  I have absolutely no load data as I enter this challenge.  I successfully shoot the Lee 55 gr bullet in .223/5.56 including in a custom AR15 I built.  This new challenge will be in the Ruger 5.7x28 pistol.  Thanks in advance.

Because I said so!

I did a quick search and came up with this link. Some interesting info about the cartridge and the FN five-seven. Nothing on cast bullets. Squid Boy

I purchased a .22 TCM 1911 which is very similar in ballistics. My initial tests showed promising results, but then illness got in the way and I haven't yet picked it back up. I don't know why you should not have good success.

Thanks.  I'm going to start with 4 gr of Win 452AA and work up from there.  I have about 5 lbs of this powder and then will work with some Grey B.  Going to be fun but the weather is getting quite cold, windy and snowy.

I scored about 2200 cases.  Now just waiting on the dies on back order.  Hope to see them by the end of January.
