with the fact that i reload and have been for a few years now, i feel less dependent upon having to settle for the more common calibers due to cost of ammo. i am more likely to buy lesser common calibers because i don't have to ely upon buying expensive factory loaded ammo and can build premium ammo much cheaper. as long as there are dies and brass, then i can reload!
I tend to buy guns chambered for a round that a lot of people don't know of unless they are REALLY into guns.

Alright, here's a cartridge that I like (and happens to be the second gun I built at Colorado School of Trades); 400 Corbon. 10 MM (.400") bullet on a necked down 45 ACP.

The .400 Corbon is interesting as it can give some versatility to a .45 ACP handgun, but it has limitations. It does not do well with bullets heavier than 165 gr. The .40 Super (similar looking cartridge) is faster and handles the 180s well. It is inferior to the 10mm in every way.

I once had a 1006 S&W barrel that I wanted to rechamber to .400 Corbon for my 4506. I happened upon a 1006 for a rediculous price and abandoned the project. The barrel was later stolen so the project died.

Ammo is scarce, but easily made from ACP cases and loaded. I see no reason to invest in a $150 barrel, $100 die set and use up my precious .45 ACP brass to make ammo that cannot do what my 10mm does easily.

I always thought you were a little "oddball"!

Hell.I can't say anything,I have plenty of oddball stuff - 458 SOCOM-Kel-Tec PLR 16 223 pistol-6.5/06 and the Creedmoor.

I've always liked having calibers/guns that are out of the ordinary.

There are many cartridges that are over 100 years old that should be revisited. The 7.62 X 25 and its parent the 7.63 X 25 Mauser circia 1896 would match today's performance cartridges. There are some AR-15 uppers being chambered in this up dated round. Owners of the CZ-52 have hand loaded this round over 2,000 FPS with a 98 Gr. FMJ bullet. Loaded with a .308 110 grs. carbine bullet it carries a high shock load. This round is devastating with an XTP HP bullet.

IIRC, it's routinely compared the the .357 Sig for those reasons. Due to it's high velocity, it has a nasty habit of over-penetration. Of course, a well designed hollow point could easily correct that problem. I have a few of those XTPs to load up. I just need to find some reload data for them using Unique.

Like I said before, someone should make a rifle chambered in them. I'd absolutely LOVE a bolt action 7.62x25.

Until then, one of these will have to do. (right after I go through the NFA process)

For years the Spanish Police Destroyers have been re-barreled to 7.63 X 25 rounds. These Mini-93 Mausers are neat small bolt guns. There are many AR-15 uppers in this caliber. I have one chambered in 9MM Luger.

another cartridge up for discussion and one i really like. the 257 Roberts. the first 25 calibered rifle i ever owned was a Remington M700 in 257 Roberts. ver gentle shooting round and pretty danged accurate. it was my coyote killing machine for the farm. absolutely loved the round.

based off the 7x57 Mauser cartridge in the 1920's and credited to Ned Roberts for designing it. Remington decided to commercialize it in 1934.

a little slower in velocity and a little less energy than the 25-06 Remington, but not by much. i suspect the 257 Roberts should be capable of doing just about as much as the 25-06 Remington if a person uses good shot placement and the proper bullets.
