Wondering what kind of order it would take, # of rounds and the total cost for said order to get them to do a limited run?

In terms of a centerfire conversion caliber, the FN 5.7x28 cartridge keeps popping up in my head. It seems to me that necking 5.7x28 down to 5.0x28 would be very close to the 5mm Rimfire Magnum dimensions (not exact, but close), and a .204 barrel chambered for 5.0x28 should work real well in a 591 action. The 5mm magazines might even work.

I'm still hoping for another run of 5mm RFM from Aguila. I have a fair stash from the last production run, but would love to get more. I did the survey, but will also email Aguila to ask about producing more 5mm.

Unless you set the shoulder back and shortened the case OAL, it wouldn't work in the magazine.

That being said, since the cartridge case diameter is about .016" less than the rim diameter of the 5mm RFM, it has possibilities.

IMHO this would be the IDEAL time to talk with Aguilla about a run of 5mm--it seems that the 22 lr shortage is non-existent even to the point of lower prices than B 4 the shortage
