Any 5mm Remington fans ?

I know that the various 17 calibers have taken the world by storm, but does anyone remember the bottleneck rimfire from the 70's....5mm Remington ?

Yep. Saw ammo and a gun in Grises Gun shop awhile back. I haven't seen one for years. Neat little round.

Oh my yes indeed. I have a 591 and a pretty good supply of Centurion (Aguila) ammo for woodchucks. Can't find any more though.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

I contacted Aguila this week and the HR person told me that another run of 5mm ammo is in the plan this year, and it will be a BIG announcement.

I'm a BIG fan !!

Have a 591M and a 592M. Have made some pretty long shots on 'chucks for a rimfire. Always looking to stretch it out a whisker more. Hoping to break the 300 yard mark this summer. Definitely NOT what most people think when they think "rimfire".......

I hope they're done blowing their smoke.

This was promised in 2016. Then moved to 2017. 2017 is all used up............. I'll believe it when I see it. I hope I see it.
