If they build it.......

Iím sure folks would buy a 5mmRem B-Mag or similar rifle.
A new rifle would certainly fuel the possibility to produce more types of ammo.
Rimfires certainly are appealing to those that donít want...

I like mine...

As I said in a previous post mine shoots 5/8Ē to 3/4Ē groups at just under 3000 FPS.

I am pleased with the Ruger...

Welcome aboard mate....

I was on the fence for quite awhile and finally bought the 18.5” Ruger.
My concerns about really slow speeds and not great accuracy were unfounded my Ruger shoots on average 5/8” groups and the...

Thank you for posting the link

The video was enjoyable and you were right he does have a nice 591.
Bonus for me was the Carlos Hathcock videos that popped up next to this one on YouTube.

Was thinking about this yesterday...

Was looking at the Taurus pistols in 17HMR and thought about the 5mm.

I would like to see a quality bolt action 5mm

The reality is we probably wonít,Eric is going to print a story of how he had his CZ converted over on Varminter.com.The easy way to get shooting one quickly is to have MGM build you a barrel as they...

I didnít get an answer so I messaged them about the possibility of them producing a new model to replace the 38 that has been discontinued.They answered very quickly and courteously that they had no...

Does VNT mean....

Varmint Non Toxic?
I kinda thought CCI made this to comply with Californiaís new laws.I guess a fella could pull a bullet and see if it is all copper with no lead.

Expansion ratio....

This is why gas pushing against the base of a larger diameter bullet of the same weight can travel at faster speed than a smaller bullet.I think a 20WSM with a 24 NTX would be a welcome addition to...

Thinking about a Summit in 17WSM....

Was hoping Volquartsen would build one,I assume the action on the current semi auto 17WSM is slightly larger than the 10/22 size used for the 17M2/22LR.It might take a little bit of engineering but I...
