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?

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.

So, what's causing this drought? Too many people buying, manufacturers supplying less, or both?

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
