Many thanks, looks like you and I are the only ones active here which is disappointing.
Re cases go over to castboolits and work down to rim fire area open that and you will see an old thread ive resurrected on making 5mm brass from hornet if you know a good machinist he maybe able to make a cutter for you, it would be great if something could be adapted to a manual or power trimmer

Hi to all. I am a new member and a fan of the 5 mm rim fire. I have owned one for about 3 years now and have found it to be the perfect shoot and scoot woodchuck rifle. For longer range woodchuck shooting I typically use a 722 .222, also a favorite but much heavier than the 581. I hope to contribute to this forum and I know I will learn a lot from reading and listening.

Cerakoated the steel, Timney trigger, BKL mount, old Redfield 3-9x widefield scope and refinished the stock.
Now to get out and shoot!

Lil Gun with a 32 grain bullet and a non magnum primer.
Moly is a lube but I keep it out of my rifles these days. If it works for you......~
Yes the moly is wonderful, well a 30 grain moly coated lead bullet at 2680 fps with 6.7 gr of #9 (in January) gave me the best accuracy of anything I have ever loaded or shot in the 5mm (both RF and CF)
How many grains of lilgun you use with the 32??? I was speaking about lead bullets and your 32s may be but makes me wonder if you are speaking about jacketed bullets… that is awesome velocity and I don’t get anywhere near that with any powder bullet combo (32 gr v-max and 26 gr VGs) (powders were Enforcer - AA#9 – lilgun - 2200 – h-110 and power pistol),
But I also heard there is a big difference in lead… mine was all melted tire weights… I must have been very lucky for everything to work as it did but then being told about the leading up at that velocity and how hard it is to clean scared me off… that is until I got the itch for plinking rounds…
Quick Load showed me a velocity of up to 2862 fps with the 32 gr v-max but in real life I could only get a max velocity 2200 with 7.3 grs of powder and accuracy was only so-so.
Even though this thread is about the lead bullets and I would like to learn more about them I am also highly interested in your load. I would appreciate any help you could provide in helping me obtain that velocity and accuracy too…

Got an email response from the producers of the 5MM ammo according to them they will have a MAJOR announcement latter this year about their production of 5MM ammo for 2018, I know we heard this before, but maybe if more people ask about the ammo they might actually move on it this year.
