Suppose you were given an opportunity (and the means) to bring to fruition the wildcat handgun or rifle cartridge of your dreams. What would the parent case be (if not an original design)? Describe the case. Here are some things to consider: is it for a short-action or long-action rifle; belted or non-belted; rimmed or rimless; a shallow or steep shoulder angle; and minimal or significant taper. Consider how well it'll cycle, too. What caliber? What velocity would you hope to achieve, and what would be its purpose? Does it offer any real advantage over existing cartridges? Lastly, what would you name it (please keep it clean)? Here’s your chance to create your own cartridge and present it to like-minded friends. Be creative and have fun.
Create Your Own Cartridge
The Norinco 84S presents the same general appearance as the Chinese-made 56S because it has the same overall length, is built around a stamped sheet-steel receiver and uses the same hooded front sight base, the same 45-degree gas block, the same fire-control components, the same wood furniture and the same high-polish blued finish.
