>HIGHLY RESPECTED FINNISH UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR

I have a question /k/

I'm designing a near-future high-caliber anti-material rifle. It fires 40mm rounds but is otherwise configured as a standard magazine-fed rifle. As a discleamer, yes, I'm aware that this is a terribly impractical thing to design, and yes, it is a fucking massive rifle. That's not what I'm here for though.

What I need to know is, what types of ammunition would be suitable for this weapon? So far I've got AP-I, APFSDS, Airburst Fragmentation, and High-Explosive Rocket-Assisted. Can /k/ come up with anything else?

Also, will post screenshots of the model upon request if anyone is curious.

Consider 25mm, 30mm or even 37mm instead of 40mm. There would be no possible way to shoulder fire such a rifle unless the gas just went straight out the back like a rocket launcher.

>>25620680
HEDP - high explosive, dual purpose. shaped charge with a variable pressure fuse, delays ignition when it strikes a hard surface to increase penetration of armor. Will penetrate "in excess of 2 inches of homogeneous steel"

are you retarded? the M203 is 40mm. it's would be possible to fire. just very unpleasant.


example
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.950_JDJ

This is a 20mm round. A 40mm would have to be significantly slower to be usable by a human, but if we're talking sci-fi anyway I'm sure your power-armored super snipers can fire a 110lb rifle from the standing and hit the 10 ring at 2 miles, from the fantail of a space-destroyer, in the rain, on easter sunday.

40mm has no stopping power. I suggest going to 45mm

I have what is probably a stupid question, /k/.

If these rioters are so pissed off at the police and the government, and throw firebombs and rocks at them and torch buildings...

Why don't they just carry guns and shoot them? I mean, it's not like they don't have access to guns.

I'm not endorsing it, I'm just curious. They can't really be that all pissed off if they're not shooting.

Are you sure you are just not overcompensating, or do people respond to your "bulling"?

american gun culture is the unfunniest place on earth. /k/ "humor threads" are usually cringey dogshit. Even woman comedians are better, they at least have punchlines sometimes

american gun culture is the most incompetent place on earth. /k/ "info threads" are usually cringey useless edgy crap for 14 year olds born too late for Totse, and DIY guns are always just the same shitty slambangs as ever

>>
>>25620068
Yeah, doesn't that kinda prove that the other factors of performance should dictate which caliber of handgun to use?
Stuff like barrier penetration, recoil, capacity, muzzle blast, cost of ammo, size, etc.
If there were just one superior round, or they were all the same, there would be only one. Nobody would waste time or resources on the inferior rounds, and nobody would produce weapons using those calibers.
Pick the tool for the job.

Putnam isn't the worst but it's not the best. I wouldn't expect more than a few months wait and a minimal application process/fee. Go to their website to find out more.

>>25625091
Can't carry but it was fairly straighforward to get one in suffolk. The rules are a bit of a pain in the ass, but its better than no pistols.

The process takes about 5 or 6 months from the date you turn in the paperwork depending on how clean your record is. From what I understand they've been pushing people with clean records through the system while waiting on people with anything negative.

Ended up costing about $100 for the whole thing, plus the drive out to yaphank.

In fairness to Argentina, they suddenly found themselves fighting the best Infantry on the planet at the point of a bayonet. The rest of the British force might have been pretty hastily put together but once those guys landed on the Islands the result was sealed.

I don't think I'd have done much better, or anyone else for that matter.
