Yep. There are more powerful hangun cartridges, but the .500 S&W is produced at a much greater rate than other highly specialized cartridges. New Question: What firearm was produced in Australia in the early 70's designed as a belt-fed shotgun, a LMG, a submachine gun, and an assault rifle?

Yep. Quite a firearm, but probably not the most reliable.

The M34 Grenade appears to have been quietly eased out of the (public) inventory. What was the highly unusual feature of this grenade?
