Everyone hates the .45 gap I think
I think some cartridges come along as a solution to a problem that doesn't exist for most people! the 45 Gap seems to be one of those.
I don't hate the .17 mach 2 but it doesn't need to exist
.380... even tho I have a couple... Damn .380 slips through into my 9mm brass more often than I'd like to see. Had 2 in a batch of 200 rounds I loaded tonight
I too have a few pistols in 380 and don't reload for them, simply content with buying the factory ammo for them. not for sure I will ever add the dies to reload for them either. I have debated for several years about reloading 380, and even with the increased cost over 9mm ammo, it still doesn't seem necessary for me. I usually keep around 150 rounds of 380 in hand, and so far it's been more than enough.
I don't like 22 Nosler, 24 Nosler, 26 Nosler, 28 Nosler, 30 Nosler, etc.
It's a marketing led ploy. I can hear the meeting, "Ok engineers, figure out a new cartridge to fulfill our campaign, just come up with something, and we'll figure out the justification."
Even worse is the naming convention. It's about as exciting as naming them 1/4" or 5mm like you would with an end wrench, or socket.
At least have the decency to name them something like, 22 Thundercat, 24 Fury, 26 Rage, 28 Blaze, 30 Comet, etc.
8MM Mauser. Nothing wrong with the round, just the rifle is iffy and not much fun.
How about the .50GI?
