My buddy was shooting this stuff, and had 2 FTF on the first strike.

First time his FiveSeven ever had an issue, period.

I told him to try the bullet again and it fired off fine the second time.

I've never had possession of any actual WInchester 197 - that goes far back. I've never even seen any other than a pic of a box once.

i could be wrong, but i do not think that was the winchester stuff that i fired.

could i tell by the lot numbers on the inside of the boxes? would that determine the age of the ammo?

yes, not exactly the thing you want on your nightstand gun! CLICK instead of BANG!!! :roll:

I think he is talking about the new Federal SS197 since Winchester never made any VMAX 5.7x28mm.

BTW: If he is shooting the old Winchester JHP or FMJ, then thats some expensive ammo he's shooting...

Yes, federal, whoever the new manufacturer of the stuff is.

Sorry for some reason 'winchester' got stuck in my head. :-D
