The first picture shows a date of March 2021; is this a new development?\n\nNo its old news reported on fnforum.net long time ago. FN still controls most of the brass and their proprietary coating required to make the FsN pistol\/PS90 cycle properly. There is a lot more info on this on the FN forum. Ammo acquisition is still an issue, especially self-defense ammo (unobtanium except small single box quantities), The SS197SR polymer tip in the OP image is considered range practice ammo by a 5.7x28 US joint agency study not suitable as a duty round. Speer has started to ship production but small quantities.
