In the last twenty years, plenty of awesome-but-impractical rounds have been designed by wildcatters. At least some of them are designed to be compatible with AR-15 or AR-10 firearms, at least in part. Others have been MacGuyered somehow to work in other semi-automatic designs.

And that makes them interesting to monster hunters, even if marginal or useless for real world tactical situations.
How about running a longer .50* through the gun modification rules in TS (basically the shortening a long arm options)

This will reduce damage**, weight, acc and bulk (and increase ST and RcL if you remove the stock)

*or Lapua / CheyTac rifle

**huh but not range (personally I'd apply the same mod to range as damage)
