No, however each action has it design limit and so do you! More cartridges are chambered in bolt guns because its easier and cheaper then developing a auto to work with each cartridge case and load. Remember we have auto loading main tank and artillery pieces (203mm ie 8 inch guns!)

Can I get one of those?
