Remington 5mm Magnum & 5mm Craig

I’ve been threatening to write this article for some time now. I
found a few folks that have been doing a lot of shooting and reloading
for the 5mm Craig. One of them offered to write this section for me. As
it turns out he got really tied up with work and family and just can’t
get to it. So you’ll have to put up with me! 

Let’s get started. Remington introduced two rifles chambered
for a new rimfire cartridge in 1970. The cartridge was the 5mm
Remington Magnum. It was supposed to put the nails in the coffin of the
then new Winchester 22 Magnum. Yeah right! They were only produced for
four years with approx. 32,000 total rifles produced. Two versions. The
591 was a clip fed rifle and the 592 was tube feed.
