The FN 5.728mm (also known as the FN 5.7x28mm NATO) is a small-caliber, high-velocity, smokeless powder, rebated rim, bottlenecked centerfire cartridge made by FN Herstal for handgun and personal defense weapon (PDW) use. It’s about the same length as the.22 WMR (5.727mm) and, to a lesser extent, the.22 Hornet or.22 K-Hornet. Unlike many new cartridges, it does not have a parent case; FN created the entire package from the ground up.

The FN 5.728mm (also known as the FN 5.7x28mm NATO) is a small-caliber, high-velocity, smokeless powder, rebated rim, bottlenecked centerfire cartridge made by FN Herstal for handgun and personal defense weapon (PDW) use. It’s about the same length as the.22 WMR (5.727mm) and, to a lesser extent, the.22 Hornet or.22 K-Hornet. Unlike many new cartridges, it does not have a parent case; FN created the entire package from the ground up.

In answer to NATO requests for a replacement for the 919mm Parabellum cartridge, the 5.728mm was developed in cooperation with the FN P90 PDW and FN Five-seven pistol. NATO undertook a series of tests in 2002 and 2003 with the goal of standardizing a PDW cartridge to replace the 919mm Parabellum cartridge.

The tests evaluated the 5.728mm cartridge’s relative merits against the 4.630mm cartridge, which was developed by Heckler & Koch as a competitor to the 5.728mm. The NATO group later suggested the 5.728mm cartridge, citing improved testing results, but the German delegation opposed, and the standardization process was put on hold indefinitely.
By 2006, FN’s 5.728mm firearms—the P90 PDW and Five-Seven pistol—had been adopted by military and police agencies in more than 40 countries. 5.728mm weapons are currently employed by a number of law enforcement forces in the United States, notably the US Secret Service.
The 5.728mm cartridge has since been employed in a variety of weapons, including the AR-57 and FN PS90 carbines, in addition to the FN P90 and FN Five-seven rifles. Excel Arms has created four 5.728mm weapons, MasterPiece Arms has three 5.728mm.
