Less than $20 to load 100 rds.

2450 fps with a 33gr Hornady V-Max (as much energy at 185yds as 17 HMR at the muzzle)

Flatter trajectory: 2 1/2" high at 100yds, 2" low at 200yds

Not at the mercy of rimfire ammo manufacturers.

Bullets primers and powder readily available

Better more consistent accuracy.

100yds



200yds

Wildcat Junky,
I don't think I saw what cf chambering you went to?

It is reloadable 5mm brass, specially made for the exact same rimfire chamber.

The only modification to the rifle is the bolt head & the extractor.

Sorry I wasn't clear on what I was asking, what is the cartridge called? I would like to research it a bit. Thanks

Te original 5mm CF conversion was called 5mm Craig. It used a CNC case that had a cylindrical interior with greatly reduced interior volume. The "Craig" conversion also used your modified RF bolt.

The Schroeder conversion uses a new bolt head with an improved extractor and cases formed from .22 Hornet brass.

The 5mm CF conversion is a "Wildcat" chambering and is generally referred to as 5mm CF.

5mm Schroeder would seem appropriate though as the "Craig" is inferior and has pretty well died out.

New 5mm rimfire ammo (pipe dream)

I was one of numerous people who filled out the survey and communicated with Aguila about getting them to produce the new rounds they had considered producing last year. I don't know if they are still considering it, but I doubt it as they no longer show the listings on their website.

So...a few days ago I went to CCI's website for idea submittals (http://ideas.cci-ammunition.com/). I used their "Submit an Idea" form to request that they offer 5mm rimfire in their lineup.

Now it will be like watching the grass grow as I hope to hear something positive. Keep your fingers crossed!

Time to harass Aguila!!!

I spoke with CCI on the phone today and they said they are not interested in producing 5mm ammo. They don't feel there's a large enough demand for it. Compared to 22LR, of course not, but there is still an awful lot of us out there who would and will buy all we can get our hands on if someone will just produce it!

I think it's time we start a grass root movement to get Aguila to honor their announcement of three new rounds!

Got another email from Aguilla today about 5mm Mag production. We need to keep the message that there is a demand for the stuff fresh in their mind. See below.

Hi Don,

Thank you for your interest in Aguila Ammunition. At this time the 5mm Remington product is not in production. We put 5mm production on hold to meet the high demands of our current products. However, we are aware of the strong demand for it on the market. We are trying to achieve realistic demand numbers to provide to production for limited runs of the ammunition. We do not have a date at this time. We will make an announcement when 5mm is back in production. In the meantime, please feel free to check out our other products. Product Catalog Link: https://www.aguilaammo.com/wp-conten...17-Catalog.pdf

We appreciate your continued support of Aguila Ammunition and look forward to serving all of your ammunition needs, now and in the near future.

Thank you and happy shooting!
Patty Cuellar

That is the most positive statement that I have heard. Limited production and when it is back in production.

Fingers crossed! It makes me nervous that they pulled the 5mm listings off of their website, but maybe that was to try to minimize calls/emails.

I have gathered up a couple of Scopes, and mounts that I could mount on this nice looking pistol, but, I probably never will now. I should sell it, rather than let it set there as a safe queen. I don't look for the powers to be to let us enjoy our rights to shoot our guns, like we used to do. It sure is a sad state of affairs.
Chubbo
why not buy a barrel that you can shoot? Cheaper than trying to feed a 5mm and MUCH better than having a fine pistol/carbine (you did not specify) that is nice to look at but can not shoot.

For me the T/C Contender is possibly the most fun firearm I have ever owned. There was a time I hunted with nothing else for over 8 years.
