Case, 5mm is a crafting item in Fallout: New Vegas.


This item is used as a component to create 5mm round on the workbench, along with some lead, primer, small rifle and powder, rifle.


  • 6 to 17 casings can be found on the corpse of an enemy that was wielding a minigun or a assault carbine at the time of their death. Super mutants typically wield miniguns, and Veteran Rangers frequently carry assault carbines.
  • When you fire a weapon chambered in the 5mm round, there is a 30% chance you'll get a casing.
  • You'll get 25 5mm casings if you buy a 5mm case box.
  • Occasionally some traveling merchants will "sell" 5mm casings (among many other calibers), but they will always be for free. Likewise, if you try and sell casings to a merchant, you will not receive any money.
