At the exhibition Eurosatory 2022 in Paris, France, FN Herstal and Fiocchi have announced that they have entered into a new agreement. The new partnership should please U.S. customers as it specifically covers the manufacture and supply of 5.7x28mm ammunition in this market. The future plan is also to expand the existing range of 5.7x28mm ammunition for the U.S. commercial market.
Is that a large market? I don’t own one,
but it doesn’t seem that popular.

I think the question should be, if ammo were more available, would it be more popular?
-- Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past me I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain. --

Perhaps if it were cheaper also. The two guys I know who shoot it say it's around $1.00/round
I looked up the price of 5.7x28mm and it is outrageous. I last paid 16 dollars for fifty rounds.
I hope we get additional supply with these new types and prices moderate as the breadth of choice expands.

the room together.
Ruger and Palmetto State Armory now make and sell guns in this caliber. It has growing interest.
More ammo is good news. Rumor is PSA will also start making ammo soon.
