Default 1911 Tokarev

I bought a Tokarev, thought it was a neat round. Found a barrel, bought a Taurus 1911 in 38 Super, have not had a chance to put them together and PLAY....

10mm necked down to 9mm. Awesome penetration while using a relatively larger caliber compared to other high penetration pistol rounds.

Yea I know but considering 9mm bullets are very common it should be cheaper to buy and reload right?

500 S&W necked to 40 caliber pushing a 165 grain gold dot hollow point at appx 2100 fps.
Chamber it on the dessert eagle frame with a 6" barrel cause you need a two handed grip for a mountain cartridge like this.

You can call it a 10mm s&w magnum

How about we get a 500 smith case, necked down to .17. Pushing a 20 grain bullet. A real thing would probably be .45 necked down to .355 p. it's probably been done, but I'd imagine it would have potential. Or you could have a .44 caliber round, that's kind of "intermediate " between special and mag. Make it rimless for autoloaders.

I'm actually tryin to create my own semi-auto cartridge, right now.
I wanna neck a .38 auto to a .32, and possibly a .38 auto to a .25.
