:signs1180lq: Has anyone heard or seen anything on this. I just stumbled across some stuff this morning. I wondered if anyone was using this here. What are the pluses and negatives? How would these loads be for a youth hunter hunting Coyotes? Better than a .22 magnum? Any suggestions or info let me know.

No personal experience. The cartridge has been around for a long time now, though not very popular.Magnum Rimfire Comparison

Last year there was a rumor going around that the 5mm was going to make a comeback with a couple companies ready to jump in and start building rifles chambered for it. I really wish it would. I'd buy one.

I ended up getting one of those as a gift from a friend for graduating Basic Training and AIT at Fort Sill back in 1995. I could never find ammunition for the thing, so I never shot it. Not too long ago one of the forum members posted a link to some website to find ammunition. I clicked on the link and lo and behold, there it was. Fodder for my old rifle. I'm gonna have to get some one of these days and try it out.
