2300AD's "conventional" weapons are discarding sabot caseless rounds, military and civilian. They follow the basic pattern of the bullet embedded in a block of propellant. Most of the block is simply stabilizer to hold everything together.

2300AD's "binary" weapons use two bottles, one of propellant, and one of oxidizer. Inert when separate, they explode when combined. Very compact, as the stabilizer is not required. Ammo consists of the two bottles, and a box-type magazine, loaded with bullets which are often large caliber (7mm-9mm) and explosive.
