If you could create a round for a semi-automatic handgun, with any characteristics such as caliber, penetration, size, weight, anything; what would you create? Something in between a .380 and 9mm? Heavier than a 338 lapua?

You tell me? I'll check back till Friday at 0900 but then I gotta catch a flight.

LOL, darn near the pistol equivalent of a 22-250. Not knowing my way around ballistics terribly well, I wonder how well that little gnat of a round would stabalize out of a 4-5" barrel.

The old 44 AutoMag. The guns and the business both had problems,

now they're mostly inoperable collector's items...

Whatever gets created needs to have the price of a 22LR.

I like the .50gi and the .460 rowland so how about a .50gi necked down to .45 pushing a 200gr bullet at about 1500fps.

You don't think it could go faster? I think it might could.

44 rem mag, trimming the rim to an auto rim, necked down to .400.
I would call it the 10mm Remington Magnum.

Brass production would be easier than changing 44 auto rim.


I would have it chambered in a 6" 1911, S&W K frame, and Glock would create its Backwoods Utility line around it.

Good luck buddy. That SDM rifle is a bad mofo if put in the hands of the right shooter.
I've had a LOT of fun with it at work (Army Sniper School Instructor); so much fun, in fact, that I built my own for personal use!

To answer your question, I'd like SLAP-T in .45 ACP. THAT would be some stupid lethal stuff!!!
