New FN Herstal Cartridges

FN Herstal has recently introduced four new cartridges to its 5.56 and .50 calibers, delivering a still wider purpose-designed small caliber ammunition range.

The new FN PERMAX™ Enhanced Performance Round (EPR) cartridge delivers superior performance in urban combat by passing through barriers such as windscreens, automobile bodywork, glazing or masonry to reach a protected target. It has excellent mass retention behind barriers, maintaining greater incapacitating effect.

The new FN PROPASS™ Armor Piercing (AP) is ideally suited when the mission requires defeating hard targets using 5.56 caliber. Featuring a tungsten carbide core, the projectile perforates armored targets.

In the .50 cal ammunition line, FN Herstal has designed the FN ARIA™ .50 RR, a reduced range cartridge that features a shorter travel distance limited to 3,500m. The FN ARIA™ .50 RR cartridge is dedicated to safe and effective training with .50 cal weapons on shooting ranges that are limited to the use of 7.62mm weapons. A tracer version, the FN ARIA™-T .50 RR-T, is also available.

These four new cartridges are qualified on FN Herstal weapons and compliant with NATO standards.

For its whole product portfolio, FN Herstal offers 360-degree service support, including a wide range of certified accessories and ammunition.
