SS197SR 5.7x28mm (sporting round blue tip / Target Ammo)

SS197SR is currently offered to civilian shooters in addition to the SS195LF. It uses the same lead core 2.6-g (40 grain) Hornady V-Max projectile as the SS196SR, but it is loaded for a muzzle velocity roughly 30-m/s (100 ft/s) higher. The SS197SR projectile has a blue-colored polymer tip instead of the red color used in the SS196 projectile tip. The SS197SR has been manufactured by Fiocchi under contract for FN Herstal since 2006 and it is distributed in the United States by Federal Cartridge Company.

This ammunition is primarily used for target practice only and is not recommended for personal defense. This projectile is short and fat, which does not allow it to tumble when impacting soft tissue. The SS198LF on the other hand was specifically designed for military and law enforcement to be used a defense round, and its elongated boat tailed design allows it to tumble when impacting soft tissue.
