Titles are for nobility

So have you guys ever heard of some of the crazy overbores made from the 10mm Auto? I’m sure most if not all of you know that .357 SIG is a 10mm necked down to 9mm, but they only get weirder. First picture here is .17-357 RG (for RealGuns), a .357 SIG cartridge necked down to .17. I’m not honestly sure why this was made, but it’s just hilarious, and apparently surprisingly accurate with insane velocities (over 2000fps) from a 4” barrel, though it doesn’t have the energy to cycle a semi-auto’s slide.

The second is .224 BOZ, a 10mm Auto cartridge (later using .357 SIG casings for ease of necking) necked down to .224. This was originally made for 1911-style pistols (as shown) and loaded with surplus M995 bullets, to give a handgun armor-piercing capabilities using a readily-available projectile. The cartridge was a success in penetration tests, but the massive case neck caused frequent jams and thus was abandoned in favor of the then-new 5.7x28mm round.
