The Savage Model 25 Walking Varminter is available in 5.7x28mm FN.
The 5.7x28mm FN is a strange addition to the Model 25 Walking Varminter line, which includes .204 Ruger, .22 Hornet, .222 Rem. and .223 Rem., all of which are substantially more powerful. It is much closer in performance to the rimfire .22 Magnum, but with a lot less choice of factory loads.
My guess is that this rifle is being produced for handloaders who want a reloadable alternative to the .22 Magnum. In this niche it could be quite successful.
