I have significant doubts that this caliber will ever catch on. Great that it fits into a WMR cylinder, not so great that it requires a barrel change. But with February approaching. Maybe a small box for collecting? Doubt any local places will ever carry this eccentric round.

I think with the introduction of the .17hmr and modern loading for the WMR is what doomed the 5mm
I am glad to see they are making ammo for it

If you have a 5mm I suggest buying rather large quantities of ammo at a time
as I could see centurion pulling the plug rather unexpectedly

another issue is that if people in CA wanted to use this as a small game round and they did reside in the non lead regions that would be rather problematic
