Get rid of 9mm, 40 cal, 45, everything, standardise all handgun rounds in 10mm and different case lengths for magnum and ultra mag rounds. S&W .460 and .500 can stay as the patricians revolver rounds.

How does Boz stack up to .22 SCAMP?

>get rid of 40

What, praytell would you have for lighter cc guns?
>>
>>42588055
If you need a subcompact that isnt a short 10mm then use .22lr
>>

Ive decided .357 can stay too for compact revovler use as well as lever boi plinking

9mm, replace with .30 Luger for xtra-subreme penetrating power
>>
>>42587896
5.56 traded in for .280 british, which was the original intent.

.22lr for .25acp for the centerfire reliability

>.410 bore
In exchange for
>.50 AE

Pump action .50 AE rifles with 16" barrels, interchangeable with smoothbore 18" for .50 AE shotshells. .50 AE Memewaves. High capacity versions with a 20" barrel and mag tube of appropriate length. .50 AE is just over an inch and a half long, so instead of a 5+1 .410 bore, you get 10+1, possibly having to bump the tube up half an inch or so.

>>42589526
And then 280 for 8mm cetme
>>
>>42589526
.276 Peterson.

>>42589626
.280 is a 7mm in a 30-06 case necked down that has been dying a low death for a long time.

5.56x45


7.92x40mm CETME
>>
>>42587896

5.7mm for 6.5×25mm CBJ

Better bullet in every way but material cost, usable in 9mms with a barrel swap, hot as hell with a heavy bullet means a lot of armors are actually defeated.

P90 in this means it'd actually be more than a meme gun, even if the ammo capacity would drop.

Time travel to 1950 and swap 7.62x51 for 280

Shitcan: .45-70
Exchange for .458 Ham'r

One of the memest cartridges ever made.
>>
>>42593435

I mean an all steel carry gun or any other metal (9mm) sub gun could take advantage of the bullet too with a barrel swap. MP5 in that would just be pure sex.
>>
>>42593552
>>42593552
Oh, I was supposed to explain why it is better.
*ahem*
Ok, .45-70 throws a 300gr bullet about 2100fps. The .458 Ham'r can throw a 300gr bullet about the same speed, but will run in an AR. It's basically a semiauto .45-70.

Meme. As. Fuck.
>>
>>42587896
None, and none. Small arms are relatively useless in combat, and the ones we have are effective enough. Even if you go caseless or polymer or whatever Newton's law still exists. As far as firearms go, you're fucked. The future of weapons technology isn't in projectiles.

Because more faster, and you didn't need all that capacity anyway.

WC blue tips are top tier. They hurt so good

Replace 22lr with high powered 177 pellet. Only useful for plinking and small vermin anyway, so why pay for brass, powder, and primers when all you need is some lead?
>>
>>42587896
Dump 12 ga. shotshells.
Replace it with the exact same thing but with a rimless/recessed rim 12 ga. so they'll work in a box magazine.

It's just 12 ga. He'll be fiiiine, now if that were a 9mm hed be fucked

.270 Win in exchange for .284 Win. Hear me out, country boys, because I can hear your wailing and gnashing of teeth from here. We're bringing back the Savage 99 and Winchester 88 with it.
