Thanks for sharing the pics. Can you tell if the brass is coated or not?
Rural king has 5.7x28 federal for 25$ a box atm in my state of indiana just fyiOk, good to hear. It is a bit more expensive than the Federal AE 5.7 but the dealer has around 3000 rounds of the S&B in stock. Another retailer that is closer to me had some S&B last year as well but it was all sold before I had even bought my Five-Seven.
Getting it shipped cross-country to me it comes out to around $0.87/rd for 250rds which is not bad but a lot more than the $0.60ish per round I paid for Federal last fall. I guess I am still lucky with American prices for 5.7 as high as they are right now!
