Reloading the 5mm Remington

I have bought the conversion kit to change my remington 591
to centerfire.

The problen is,I can't find any reloading data.

I called Schroeder, and they were not interested in giving
me any reload data. (What gives, does't seem like very good
selling practice.)

I plan on using the .204 Barnes 26gr.H.P."VARMINT GRENADE" Bullet.
Also, thought of using Hodgdon H110 or LIL'Gun powders.

Any help from you Forum guys would be great.

Thanks
JMFSALKS

    There is a guy here named 5mmguy or something like that. Might find him in the member search and email him.

    I emailed 5mmgunguy, but have had
    no response from him.

    Are there any 5mm reloaders out there,
    that could help me?


    Thanks

    Maybe give the tech's at Sierra a call , they have been very helpful to me in the past .

    1-800-223-8799

    even if they don't make a 204 cal. bullet , they still may be able to help .

    JMFSALKS sorry my emails didn't get to you, I sent you two emails. They may have ended up in your spam file. The jesseshunting link above is an interesting one, but the loads are way hot. Try reloadingnest.com. Look for the 20 Craig loads. Not sure you are going to be able to push the Barnes leadfree anywhere fast enough. They simply will not expand worth beans at 2100 fps. One last thought the 5MM uses a .2045 bullet. They shoot the best. But Berger 30 gr bullets work ok too.

    Anyone looking for info on the 5MM Craig (Centerfire 5MM Remington Magnum) should go to 5MMCraig.com, click on 5MM. Everything you will need to know about loading the centerfire Craig.

    "Thanks for taking the time to find
    all the information for me."

    "I searched the internet for a least
    2 months, to find loading info,
    for the 5mm Remington Magnum."

    I now have enough data to last me a long time."

    Thanks
