We really need to flesh out the penetration data for the PS90....
I was using the SS192 stuff during a Winchester ammo demonstration and it penetrated 8 inches of gelatin. That's it. It didn't expand or anything. The bullet was totally unharmed and could probably be reloaded into fresh brash with no problems whatsoever.

Just FYI, there are a few errors. The five seven forums folks forgot to update the names of a few cartridges. It's now SS191 and SS193. I keep the wiki 5.7 sight fairly updated.

Roger!

I will update the web page tonight. Thanks for the info.

TH: Great job on finding that wound ballistics comparison... It's pretty amazing that SS190 is comparable to M193 fired out of a short barreled AR15...

Now the question remains: How does SS195 stack up to M193 when fired out of the PS90?

Damn good post Lord Skeletor! Keep up the good work...
I exist to serve---my fellow FNH zealots :twisted:
Hehehhe...I'm hoping to finish up some of my "home" ballistics tests in the near future and I'll share my results with you guys.

The PS90 muzzle velocities are essentially 150 ft/s faster than the P90 muzzle velocities. I am not sure why DmL5 or the Five-seveN folks list SS195 as 2500 ft/s. The American Rifleman averaged the velocities of 10-shots and it was roughly 150 ft/s faster than the spec listed for the P90.

Thinking this info would be a nice add to that of what Lord Skeletor gave us- will upload pics this wknd.

FN used and continue to use with Fiocchi a powder from Western Powders- label of "RAMSHOT" for all of their factory loads. They use only two of the RAMSHOT line, these are Silhouette and True Blue.

SS190- 6.0 grains- Silhouette(plain tip), 6.5 grains-True Blue(black tipped)
SS191- 6.0 grains- Silhouette(plain tip), 6.5 grains-True Blue(red tipped)
SS192- 6.5 grains- True Blue
SS193- 2.0 grains- Silhouette
SS195- 6.5 grains- True Blue
SS196- 4.0 grains- True Blue
SS197- 5.5 grains- True Blue

And you ask...how and why Western Powders....

FN used/uses a Powder Manufacture called PB Clermont site:
http://www.pb-clermont.be/ which is a subsidery of Eurenco groupe SNPE from Belgium. This parent company also controls EURENCO Bofors- which is Alliant Powder in the USA, EURENCO Vihtavuori- which is Vihta Vuori distrbuted via Kaltron-Pettibone in the USA and EURENCO France- which is PB Clermont. PB Clermont distributes their powder via Western Powders and.......thus RAMSHOT.

I'm not sure how I missed this thread :cry:

It appears as though the SS195 that I already has, is extremely similar (in terms of performance) as compared to SS192. I see no need for me to spend all of the extra coin on 192 now. Thanks for sharing. :D

Your are welcome. Yes, the performance is slightly better in terms of velocity due to the 1/2 grn more. However, if you are looking at keeping any factory FN ammo around for serious storage time..get the 192-since it has the lead primer. I am not 100% on how long but they do last longer than the lead free primers of the 195.

I picked up about 10 boxes of the 192 and seated my own SS91 rounds on them for long term storage.
