I noticed in my new Midway catalog that a company is now loading the old 5 mm Remington rimfire ammo. I read or saw somewhere that Remington may reintroduce the cartridge. Does anyone have any inside knowledge if that is true or not? I always thought it was a good round, just introduced before it's time. I guess Remington also started the short mag craze back in the 60's with the 6.5 and 350 Remington mags.

they've got those shells on aimsurplus.com as well. Don't know anything about the 5mm other than it's obsolete. Looks like a fun round though!

It's an interesting cartridge, I love to see reintroductions of "obsolete" rounds. Now if they'd just bring back the old .22 Winchester rimfire, I'd be able to shoot two of my rifles again! :smack:

Those 5MM terminal ballistics pictures were pretty impressive, I'd recommend headshots only! :eek:
