Graceland "Guadalajara Dog" S1 E2

Serinda Swan appears. Yay!

Astonishingly stupid bits:

1) It's claimed those are 7.62x40 cartridges. They look nothing like the Wilson Combat 7.62x40. Note the colored tips, which the WCs don't have, and they appear to be rather tiny for 7.62/.308. I'd say they were ordinary 5.56/.223.

2) Those are obviously rifle cartridges. What the heck are they doing shooting them out of pistols?

They called them "Five-Sevens" a couple times, which are capable of being fired from a pistol.

Why are the rounds in individual styrofoam cut outs? Seems like a big waste of space...

What's the consensus so far on this show? Might need to set the DVR and watch the eps I've missed online.

5.7x28 is indeed considered a pistol round. They do indeed make armor piercing bullets for the 5.7x28 and they are indeed illegal to sell this to civilians.

As Tivogurl pointed out though, what they were holding up in the show do indeed apear to be 5.56x45 rounds....they were far too large for 5.7x28.

They pointed out that the Mexicans use 5.7...which is indeed popular with Mexican drug cartels.

The only handgun I know of which shoots the 5.7x28 is the FiveSeven that you posted a picture of. The gun they showed the characters shooting however was a Heckler and Koch USP which only comes in 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP.

They got some stuff right, and other stuff miserably wrong.
