I was at the range and found some odd empty cases. looked like 9mm magnum necked down to 22 cal. I found one loaded round with a bullistic tipped bullit in it. I was thinking what a cool varmit round it would be. when I got home I did a little research and found it was a 5.7x28 pistol round. I was still thinking it would make a good varmit round till I noticed that any 22 mag could do the same :) Oh Well it was a good idea while it lasted. DRhttp://en.wikipedia....ki/FN_5.7×28mm
