I have a 5 mm Remington Magnum. This gun is hard to find ammo for. Does anyone know where I can find ammo for this fun shooting gun ?

A company started making ammo for it again, but has ceased production for now. Finding ammo will become increasingly more difficult.

Really like the 5mm Remington Mag. Remington abandoned it long ago. Aquila made some under the name Centurion but most of that has been sold from what I can tell. Some on Gunbroker though, good luck with the search. As hard as it is to find ammo these days I am hanging onto what I have to be fed to my litte abandoned Remington.

I owned one for 15 minutes. I bought it at a gunshow for $125 with two boxes of ammo (mid '80's). I was walking back to our table and was ask how much I wanted for it I say $200, we agree on $175.
It is a good cartridge just no ammo today.
