A very good, follow-up article on Remington’s 5mm Rimfire Magnum – Originally published in the September, 1970 issue of Shooting Times Magazine the author takes the 5mm Rimfire Magnum out into the field and “Clobbers Chucks”. Finally, a hunting report using the Remington 591 rifle.
Another article on the Remington 5mm Rimfire Magnum. This one is short and sweet. Originally published in the October, 1975 issue of The American Rifleman this article discusses the Remington Model 591 & 592 rifles made for this caliber.
