Wouldn't it be nice if Hornady did for the 5.7x28mm what it did for the 7.62x39 and the 5.45x39 rounds? Introduce relatively inexpensive steel cased rounds that actually utilized the full potential of the cartridge. Can't anyone produce the round now? I know EA is planning on producing their own brass soon.

Anyone can make the ammo.

A couple of places thought about it years ago but backed out.

Not enough of a market to justify the production. Hornady sells the reloading equipment for the 5.7x28 though. The problem is the case's are an odd size. 30 cal and 223 cal cases can be reshaped in to different cartridge types.

Years ago Wolf said they were going to make the ammo then later said they had changed their mind due to the requirements and complications of the coating on the cases.
