Are you asking if you can make bullpups in rifle calibers too? That doesn't sound like a serious question...

No, i mean this shotgun model with rifle ammo.should have been more precise on my part,sry . İn semi/ full auto. Because @tfb they had a little pimped version(and i really liked this model,not the pump version)of this shotgun and there i asked the same question.

   Three versions are supposed to appear - with 267 mm (PDW) barrel, 368 (the main assault rifle) and an elongated heavy barrel for snipers in the squads.
   Short piston stroke, bolt carrier doesn't hit parts of the gun during recoil. Trigger provides single and automatic fire, mags are used from QBZ-95. The weapon is equipped with a long rail on top of an aluminum receiver and handguard, a folding front sight and a plastic buttstock adjustable in length (folding is not provided).

   A-545 production is starting.

 

Quote

   The Kovrov plant named after Degtyarev began production of A-545.

   “The plant received an order for the first batch of a 5.45 mm avtomat, a product that is quite complicated to manufacture. Now, a number of body parts are being prepared for serial production,” the Degtyarevets factory newspaper reported.

   US Army COL Joel Babbitt, Program Executive Officer SOF Warrior for the United States Special Operations Command, provided an update on small arms programs during this week’s vSOFIC event presented by National Defense Industrial Association.

   The most significant lethality efforts revolve around the adoption of the 6.5 Creedmoor and .338 Norma Mag cartridges which offer overmatch against threat small arms, allowing SOF operators to provide accurate fire at longer ranges than before.

      There are many who feel that the 5.56 NATO is a superlative rifle round. Much has been said about larger alternatives to 5.56, such as various 6.5mm and 6.8mm rounds among others. Less has been said about smaller rounds. Off the top of my head, I can recall that there was a German 4.6x36mm round, used in the HK36, and the British 4.85x49mm round. Neither of these rounds managed to gain widespread acceptance. My knowledge of the voodoo that is ballistics is somewhat limited, so I'm uncertain as to whether these failures were caused by flaws with the rounds themselves, or because they were below some lower limit of effective bullet size, beyond which performance decreases rapidly. Could we see a resurgence of these concepts in the future, or do they represent an evolutionary dead-end?
