    The .224 Boz is a proprietary cartridge developed in the UK. It's the 10mm necked down to .224. The ballistics are impressive, but finding loading dies is difficult. I did quite a bit of research on it several years ago and was going to convert one of my 10mm pistols over to it, but couldn't find an appropriate barrel or dies, so I let it drop.

    I have no experience with the 5.7 x 28, so can't give an opinion on it.

    Hope this helps.

    The 5.7x28 is a glorified 22 WMR. The 22 hornet kicks it's butt.

    Ummm... except the boz is in autopistol format. Having 15 rounds of 22 hornet in a pistol would be great.

    I know the .224 BOZ was designed for a 1911 style firearm... I was curious as to the pressure and design differences between it and the 5.7x28 to see if I could modify a 1911 to feed the 5.7x28 for a "unique" gun....
