HANDGUN AMMUNITION

Cartridges haven't evolved a lot since their introductionin the 18th century. They still propel a dense metallic projectile by burningsome powder, ignited by a blasting cap exploding when struck.
The great innovation of the late 20th century was the caseless ammo, pioneered by the H&K G11 rifle. In these cartridges, the metallic (usually brass, sometimes copper or steel) case is supressed,and the bullet and primer are held together by the propellant.
This save a significant amount of weight, and reduce the production cost.
Most weapons of 2020 use caseless ammo. But sincemost old weapons cannot easily be converted to caseless ammo, there are still a lot of cased ammo around. One upgrade is the PlastiCase ammo, replacing metal by a strong, heat-resistant plastic, reducing the weightand cost of the ammo. It can be made in a variety of designer colors, too.
Many calibers (like .357, .44, .45...) are available both in pistol and revolver versions.
