    Episode 107 - Dear Diary

    Post by sthwestvictoria on Thu Jul 17, 2014 1:33 am

    With regard to the US army sidearm, the GunDudes had a rambling discussion about this.  One point they made which was interesting was whether the FN 5.7x28mm would be considered.  Rather than going bigger and slower, go faster and smaller (and tumbling? better terminal ballistics in a FMJ? - I don't know enough about this). This is like the 5.56 Vs 30-06 discussion. Actually it is more like the 45-70 Vs 30-40 Krag - big hole, slow soft lead Vs fast jacketed.

    Another consideration is how the introduction of lead free projectiles will impact on the choice of sidearm and this is another thing coming down the turnpike.

    ps why the title Dear Diary?

    "Dear Diary" was due to the email of the fellow that was logging his ccw trips everywhere.
    I would hope that the 5.7 would not be in contention. The whole idea was that they wanted more stopping power.
