    Hey,



    As always I am looking for the next best thing in the shooting world and just so happened that I ran across about 50 rounds of brass with a head stamp of 5.7x28 it looked like a mix between a 22mag and a 22 hornet I was wondering if I could get one of these chambered in a regular bolt action and what kind of power are we talking for such a wee cartridge

    I wiki'd the caliber by FN and here it is: 5.7x28mm - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    I do not think that there is a bolt rifle chambered in yet, perhaps a custom build is needed. IMHO there are too many other .22 caliber rounds out there to justify a build. Now a single-shot rifle would be a way to use the caliber...
