This URL at bottom says coming 2016 -- we be there.
Wonder if this is different than the 15+ year old Aguila/Centurion ammo ?

2008 introduction came too late for me. Late in the 90's I was buying up 591's and 2's out of the Gun List paper. Ended up with six or seven and most looked like new with the highest paid was $175 and it came with two boxes of Rem ammo. When Remington brought the ammo back, I knew I'd cut a fat hog. I called Rem customer service and asked about the 5MM ammo. Ms. uncongeniality said tersely that the ammo's equipment was sold and or destroyed and she wished people would quit bothering her with that request.

Yeah, I'm surprised the customer service people were not told to hang up on any mention of 5mm. I never bought another Remington, but my 5mm riflle was happily dusted off thanks to Centurion.

Aguila update!!!

I just spoke with someone on the distribution side and she said they are leaning on the manufacturers in Mexico to produce the 5mm ammo.

She told me they have even created the following email address so that we can all chime in and be heard! PLEASE email them (and ask your friends to do the same) to tell them your story and desire for 5mm ammo!

I think the Aguila bean counters are having second thoughts if there's really that much demand for the 5's ammo. Probably would be if it weren't for the 17HMR.

What kind of business thinking is this, to sell a few million rounds of Centurion 5mm and cut off production cold, then some time later put out press releases saying new 5mm ammo is coming in 2016. They seem to want 5mm owners to commit to buying X number of rounds that are not in production and unproven. How about Aguila commits to developing and thoroughly testing the new rounds, then get back to us. The 5mm owners have been shut out in the cold twice and teasing us does not make us happy customers!!!

The Aguila bean counters could care less if your money is happy or unhappy.

But now there is a powerful rimfire alternative and questionable press release bullet weights and velocity promises ain't gonna get it.

After several years selling 5mm ammo Aguila and Centurion know how much ammo they can sell. So what's the hold up?
