Has anyone ventured into reloading the above cartridge. I have the dies, primers and press, but what I don't have is load data for this round. A guy would think there would be data since Hornady makes dies for this caliber. I understand it is very picky with very narrow tolerances. Any load data would be apprecitated.

Hey brother. I use loaddata.com. I have loaded about 500 of 5.7 and had zero problems. As others have posted, it is very tight and is a time consuming process. I don't trust my thrower as the starting and max loads can be as s mall as .5 grain. Also COL is very important. I weigh every load. Here is a .pdf of some loads I have used with good experience. I normally load up a 40 grain VMax but have even used Varmint Grenades, Sierras and a few others. As you have probably heard...don't polish the brass, and take your time.

If it were me, I'd go join the FN website where this came from or the 5.7X28 forum. A phone call to Hodgdon on Monday will get you more data than you can use. They are great folks over there!
