Is there ANY 5.7 available for sale anywhere that is actually in stock?

I am befuddled.

THANK YOU Somedude!

Funny, I checked Cabelas on Friday and they were "sold out".
Link Posted: 8/26/2012 12:29:08 PM EST

Link Posted: 8/28/2012 5:14:18 PM EST

Try Cabelas. I've made and received two orders in the past month.

Cabelas 5.7

Placed an order with Ammo-to -go on 9/20....

I back-ordered some through cabelas and have managed to find some in the local gun shops. Guy at the gun shop today said he had heard they had been on strike and that there was a possibility of Hornaday starting to make the round.

I hope so..any one else heard this?

Who is on strike?

Cabelas no longer has ANY 5.7 listed on their website.

I cannot find any for sale online anywhere that is actually instock

Link Posted: 10/25/2012 5:12:48 PM EST
Sorry boys. This is exactly why I wont buy into all these crazy calibers. Just like all the Winchester short magnums. You buy into these and then theres no ammo or what is available is high and keeps getting higher. I'll stick with the normal calibers that you can get ammo for without all the panic buying.

I have no experience with that round and it is not currently for sale on cheaperthatdirt. The local gun store has that lead free stuff for $36 for a box of 50. I am currently deployed so it’s all online purchases for me now.

SS198LF is fastest of all factory 5.7 rounds. It's the 28gr JHP red box ammo. Cheaperthandirt is overcharging you by $10/box for that ammo. Check this guy out for SS198LF for the price you paid for SS197SR from CTD..

I have not been concerned with how fast the bullet is, just the material mainly. When I think of lead free bullets I usually associate them with frangible bullets. Looks like I need to educate myself on the subject more. However link you posted is out of stock on all 5.7 rounds.

hehe a day goes by and it all goes..

The 28gr lead free round uses an aluminum core. It is not frangible, and very easily goes through soft armor :)

I was merely commenting that had you looked around more, you wouldn't have had to get bent over by CTD's rip off pricing. Widener's is out of stock right now, but again, $18.75/50:

Unless of course you have to have it right now, or by deployed do you mean you'll have it waiting for you at home?

I went to the Austin Texas Gun show today, and about had a heart attack when I saw the price of 5.7 ammo dealers wanted. Only two dealers had it ss197 one was $37 the other was $40 I was horrified. The $37 dealer had American Eagle for $29 a box. I just keep walking.

The sad truth is I would of bought a few boxes. of the ss197 or ss198 if I had seen it for that price. I would like to have a few boxes.

There was a FNH strike in Belgium. Supposedly the backlog was caused by fulfilling a contract orde. They've released statements that demand for 5.7 ammo has skyrocketed, so they've bumped up production, and have claimed that the bump should be catching up very soon

So, can we take this as good news and expect to see other manufacturers starting to make it, or the high volume is still not high enough? I usually try to see the bright side of things...

Who knows. Fiocchi and FN are the only two loaders right now. Federal simply reboxes the ammo. IIRC some of the SS190 was originally loaded by Winchester. It uses common powder, and common bullets. Only special is the brass with it's coating. There are more firearms coming out in 5.7x28mm, so it's hard to say what other manufacturers will do.
Link Posted: 11/15/2012 8:47:59 AM EST
Looks like SS198 is available on FN's site. If your willing to pay 32.71 a box. Good thing I still have 1600 rds.

I don't keep up with that ammo, but wasn't it cheap at one time?
Link Posted: 11/18/2012 10:04:22 AM EST

There's a lot of speculation right now. I saw someone trying to sell 500 rounds for $500 or so. It's a problem when only one or two manufacture it. But it should go back to the normal price of $20 per 50 rounds soon, as long as people do not panic and do not feed speculators.

Yeah I called my brother and asked him to look while he was at the gun show.... they had a guy trying to sell ss197 ammo for $45 a box also... I laughed so much when he told me the price.

I saw the same outrageous gun show pricing the other week. But I had back ordered with Cabelas a month or so ago and just got a email this morning. 439.99 for 1k rounds and free ammo can. So around $22 bucks a box not bad. It is no longer back order-able if they are sending mine out hopefully they will show it in stock again.

They have stopped talking orders for "This season" as I was told over the phone, I think they just have so many back orders to fill that they want to clear them all before even considering taking any more orders. Right now your best bet it to look at your LGS or gun broker, I found two boxes of SS197 at bass pro this past weekend for $26.

I can't believe how long it's taking to get any reasonable 5.7 stock anywhere. This ammo shortage started long before the current "panic buying" was even a thought.

I just called the main FNH USA number and tried to speak to a customer service rep to ask for a more official status update. I was able to leave a message, but my magic "8-ball" is telling me I probably won't hear back!

I called them up around 10am and it was in stock, called back later that afternoon to buy a couple thousand more rounds and it was all gone.
$23.99 per box and they had a $20 off coupon code.

Went to the LGS to get some 5.7, they had a ton, say about 80 -100 boxes. You ready for this? $50 per box!. No wonder they had so much. According to the guy at the store, you can't get the gun or ammo anymore.

Check Gunbroker. It sells all day long at $50.00 a box or more. You can still get the ammo, but it's very scarce. I just ordered 30 boxes last week @ $23.99 a box and should have it tomorrow.

EDIT: Also, the newest batches of SS197 SR have lead free primers in them.
