can you do this? just a thought
if you took a ar10 upper ok and took the 308 brass and cut it down so you could fit a 40cal in it i think it will work cause just below the sholder the case it is .450 this should leave enoughf meet to make a good crimp and military surplus 308 brass has thicker side walls so plenty of case strength. have a custom barrel made to lets say 450-500$. now all im thinking is the type of powder that would be used this should git a 40 165 hp to the 2200 to 2300 fps fairly eazy and still have minimal recoial shaving off weight from the boalt and what not. any takers i think it would work and there is plenty of surplus stuff to to make the cartrages it would be a good project.

The cartridge would probably look a bit like this-

very true but it would not cost 7-9& a cartrage lol that is just foolish

Did they make a .41 Auto Mag? If so you just re-invented it.

the 40/308 is more of an auto loader cartrage simply put heavy hitting carbine if it dosent penetrate it is gona hit you like a sledge hammer

That would be a short version of the .411 Hawk. I have and it is based on the 06 case. After you expand the case to straight walled you will have .009 of shoulder to head space on. You really have to be carefull when loading this round, and yours would be the same.

why not just go with the 44 automag you can contact Teppo Jutsu - "Art of the Rifle" - Advanced Firearms Applications and he will prolly make ya one in a ar
