Spike,

Last box of 5mm Rimfire I saw at a gunshow was $75.

Since the round was a rimfire round, and as such pretty difficult to impossible to reload, there's no brass or dies availble.

However, there is a shop in Oregon that converts the 5mm Rimfire to a 5mm Centerfire. It produces cases, loaded ammo, bullets, and has loading information and possibly dies.

For the life of me I can't remember the shop's name, but if you search the Rifles forum you should be able to find it.

Beware the man with the S&W .357 Mag.
Chances are he knows how to use it.

Spike, the conversion Mike is referring to is the 5mm Craig, created by Mike Craig. The company, Certech, is actually located in Seattle, Washington. You can visit http://www.certech.net/5_intro.htm for more information. Hope this helps!
