I didn't know how to title this but my question is basically, are all these hundreds of different calibers working against the consumer in some ways? We all know the more popular calibers are easier to find, cheaper to buy, and have more choices of loads. Take 9mm for example. You can get loads that are little more than .380acp level all the way to near .357mag level. Compare that to some of these weird rifle cartridges like the .222 Remington that still somehow exists. If I had a .222 Rem, I wouldn't have a clue where to find ammo. I know they still make ammo and they still chamber rifles in this caliber for some reason. The thing is, if I had an obsoleat caliber gun, I would want someone to make ammo for it but why are they still coming out with new calibers? Do we really need a whole new cartridge that bridges the "gap" between .308 and 30.06?
