      I don't live in a state that requires straight walls, so why would I purposefully hamper myself. .35 is the better cartridge.

        Yeah, it's cheap to shoot, great for pest control, and has a short effective range so it's not a hazard to neighbors. But at the same time it's a lot more effective than .22 rat shot. There are also BB and CB cap versions, basically "slugs".

            Henry makes a smoothbore .22LR Levergat. Also Chiappa has started importing at least one 9mm Flobert recently.

            I like the super short version, it's fricking adorable and you could fit like 40+ of them into a tubular magazine.

            Yeah, those are the BB or CB caps I mentioned in

                I've seen at least two from Chiappa. One is wood stocked version that looks like a traditional shotgun, the other is one of the folding "Little Badger" survival types.

                The really sweet gun to find is picrel, a box-mag-fed Semiauto by Vincenzo Bernardelli. Very high Italian quality. These are not being imported currently AFAIK but I have seen them show up for sale from time to time.

    I wish there were more ammunition on the market for .38-40, aka .38 WCF. I have a friend with a lever gun chambered in it but it's hard to find, although I did run across some today for a dollar a round which is great.

    Big rimfire bullets would be cool to have again. I was looking at this old Swiss military rifle last year that fired such a thing, .41 rimfire. It's literal unobtainium, hasn't been made in many decades at best. Sucks because it was in such nice condition too.
    I also want .41 Action Express to actually exist

      .41 AE is closer to .40 S&W than 10mm in power.

      Hard nope from me, the 25 acp is not a fun cartridge to reload, it's common for min and max loads to be closer together than the powder meter's 1 standard deviation range.

    I'm not just memeing, I believe there's an honest use case for 8ga shotguns. Back in the day 8ga were common for hunting ducks or geese. The only reason they fell out of favor is because they were banned by the Migatory Bird Treaty Act of 1918. The goal of this act was to outlaw mass "market hunting" of birds to protect their populations. But here's the thing:
    A) that act ALSO instituted bag limits. Who cares what size gun people are using if bag limits are in effect?
    B) Market hunting as a practice is long dead, and populations have long since recovered.
    C) More recent laws have banned lead shot for hunting waterfowl. Alternatives are either exotic materials like tungsten which is very expensive, or steel, which is cheap but sucks ballistically because steel is less dense than lead. If you can't afford tungsten then you need a larger volume of shot in order to make the same payload (mass) as the old lead load. An 8ga steel shot load would perform similar to the old lead 10ga load--exactly what the law was designed to permit hunters to use before lead bans changed things. Permitting and modernizing 8ga for waterfowl hunting would result in fewer crippled geese.

        I love 28ga as well, they're just so light and handy to carry around but at the same time pack a lot more wallop than a .410 bore. One of my grail guns would be a high end 28ga ball-and-shot gun, or a combo set with shotgun barrels & rifle barrels. Alas that is the rarest size of ball-and-shot guns, which are already very expensive to begin with.
        16's are very nice, but that's assuming they are nice guns built as 16s from the ground up. Far to often they are built on 12ga frames and then they point like a 12ga, at which point why not shoot a 12ga?
        At least 28ga aren't too hard to find. There are twice as many 28's compared to 16's on gun sale sites. Most modern shotguns of finer quality are available in 28ga current production...Beretta Silver Pigeon, Browning Citori, etc.

        Love me some 28. But 16 can suckit.

        Unfortunately, this problem can also kind of exist for 28. where 28ga shotties are sometimes just modified 20ga ones.

      just use bismuth. yeah its expensive, but how many shells are you really firing in one trip? ballistics of lead shot without the assrape from DNR.

        8ga with bismith > 10ga with bismith. Please tell me you're not trying to turn this into a "but you don't NEEED it" argument, especially when you're suggesting something as large as a 16 for upland birds.

    This thread is similar to a thread posted last week, so I’ll post basically the same reply

    >5.56 FABRL
    Except high pressure and with 2x the bullet weight

    >22 APG / 5.56 MARS / 221 fireball
    Much better chamberings for mag-in-grip rifles/PDWs.

    >4.85x49mm
    It’s neat. I wish this was adopted instead of 5.56 tbh, not because it’s the end-all be-all, but because the 2.5” OAL restriction allows for more latitude in cartridge design/bullet selection for wildcatters. Imagine literally any of the AR15 compatible cartridge but with either more powder or an extra caliber of ogive length. Performance would overlap with that of AR10 compatible cartridges, and we probabaly wouldn’t even have 2 standards.

    >510 whisper
    Also neat.

    >CETME cartridges
    Similar to FABRL, but their low overbore ratios makes them excellent and efficient SBR cartridges, only with much better trajectories than current offerings. And we all have a boner over SBRs so this a no brainer. Don’t care if they’re the OG CETMEs, just something in the same spirit. Large caliber, Light for caliber, long and fine bullet, high velocity.

    >7.92x24 VBR

    It’s like if you made 30 super carry but stopped the scaling down process halfway. Just a better execution, case head still 1mm smaller than 9x19mm so about +2 capacity in flush mags. IIRC energy is in the 400-450ft*lbs range.

      The reason why they don't re-release these is because if a bunch of companies start putting out a bunch of ammo at modern pressures, it'll make it's way into old guns and blow them up. You'll have the 8mm Mauser problem.

      Though the kind of case capacity in those cartridges is based and needs a modern reincarnation, especially in the 25. 25 cal needs a revival and needs to standardize on .257.
