5.7x28
 
Anybody know where to find 5.7x28? I hear something about it is discontinued from the manufacturer, but they lost their patent so others are making it. I know there is a shortage on everything. My boss just bought a 5.7 rifle and is having problems finding any ammo for it.

Haven't heard about it being discontinued. It was hard to find before this ##@%storm we are in now. Even .22lr is hard to find, so he is either gonna have to wait or find a .22 and keep his eyes open. Try natchezss.com or other mailorder sites, and expect a backorder.

That stuff wasn't terribly common before the panic set in.
It isn't listed as out of stock, but I'd call for more info, it might be an oversight. That's of course, if the price doesn't run your boss off. Ouch.

HOLY...!!! He is a nut so maybe he will. I told him Midway says they are going to have some the 25th of Feb. but that is a crap shoot, but the price is much better.

Thanks guys

Before the panic, I never had any trouble finding it at LGS, gunshows or online.

I've bought a ton of it at Midway.

I called every LGS within 75 miles before I posted here. No luck. Midway says 25th of feb.

Boss wont bite on the $1.23 a round listed above and is going to take his chances on gunbroker and wait for midway in the mean time.

He got 750 rounds with his new upper but, like all of us, wanted more. ;)
