    There are breech loaded single shots that use a rimless cartridge yes? How does this work? What is the design that holds round in place? Does anyone know of a single in 7.62x39?

    Yes, but I am not sure of the specifics of how they work. 'Remington' (Spartan) makes one in 7.62x39 and maybe NEF has an accessory barrel.

    A rimless bottleneck round like the 7.62x39 or any other headspaces on the case shoulder, that's what keeps the round in place in the front of the chamber. The head of the case is contained by the standing breach, breachblock, or bolt.

    Do a search for "Handi Rifle" or NEF.You'll be amazed at what you will find. Handi rifles are chambered in a large number of calibers including pistol calibers.

    I have owned one in .223 that was a lot of fun and extremely accurate.

    There's alot that don't have rims. Look at the Ruger No. 1. Barely any of the cartridges it comes in has a rim.

    And as mentioned above the headspace keeps in in place.

    Rossi and NEF both used to make single shot 7.62x39 rifles.
