    Does anyone know the calibers of amunition that are handguns only? What I mean is there is no production longgun that uses said caliber of amunition.

    The only ones I'd venture a guess on would be the .25, .32, and .380 ACPs.

    I don't know of any rifles chambered in .38 Super, either.

    There's a 454 levergun, but so far not the 480Ruger or 475/500 Linebaughs.

    (scratches head)

    Lesse, the 9x23 and 357Sigs are so far not seen in rifles I don't think. Ruger makes a 40S&W carbine.

    I don't think I've ever heard of a 10mm rifle or carbine.

    There was a .32ACP semiauto rifle. Dreyse, I think.

    I've seen AR uppers in 9x23 and 10mm. Guess that's not really production...

    I've never seen a rifle in 41 Action Express or 50 Action Express. Or 30 Luger.

    I think the Uzi importers chambered some of the carbine bbls. in .41 AE. Another one checked off the list, not many left! Wait, what about .357 max., it wasn't around long enough for anybody to build a rifle, huh?

    Don't forget, HK makes/made an MP5 variant in 10mm.

    Maybe I am mistaken (wouldn't be the first time) , but I thought there was a 480Ruger lever gun. Can someone confirm or deny this?

    .45 Auto Rim.

    No rifles are chambered for it. Given the limited popularity, probably never will be.
