    A reiteration of the question in case it got lost in the noise:

    Okay, new question:

    A Swiss gentleman named Rubin, who designed the British .303 cartridge, offered a rimless version to the British Army. For what spurious reason was this rimless version turned down? (It would have been such a storming cartridge...)

    was it because the price was too expensive or was it because the bullet was a weaker inconvient bullet

    No, the price is the same.

    The answer is that the members of the machine-gun committee were of the opinion that a machine-gun needed a protruding rim to be able to grab onto for reliable operation (which is completely untrue, and I suspect that they didn't quite understand what "rimless" meant).

    Rimless .303 really would have been an excellent cartridge (interestingly this is more or less what 7.7 Japanese is), but never underestimate the power of a committee to throw a spanner in the works.



    New question:

    Name four bolt action rifles which were converted to semi/fully automatic in at least prototype form and firing the original cartridge. Extra brownie points if you can name five or more.

    Hello, Man of Stoat!

    Here's what I came up with to answer your question:

    1. SNABB 38: Swedish designed modification of the M1894 Krag-Jorgensen rifle

    2. Charlton Automatic Rifle: New Zealand modification to Lee Enfield rifles

    3. Fusil Mle 1917 RSC: modification / alteration of the French Lebel model 1886 rifle using the stock, barrel, trigger guard, and foregrip

    4. The Huot automatic rifle: Canadian conversion of obsolete Ross Rifle to light machine guns

    I couldn't find anymore during my search on-line.

    Number three doesn't count because the conversion only used trivial components, not the action.

    The other two immediate answers are:

    1903 Springfield
    Schmidt Rubin K11

    Of course, only in prototype form...

    There were also several variations of converting Lee Enfield's.
