Old cartridges and calibers revived for long-range use?

Was sitting and reading yet another book about anti-tank tactics during WW2, when I happened to read more about the various anti-tank rifles. After doing some more research, I was thinking that maybe some calibers could be revived as modern-day long-range anti-personell calibers, for example the old german cartridges P35 and the 7.92mm Patrone 318.

Bah! Site is temporarily unavailable!

I'll have to check it out another time.

MEL
I'm trying to find out more about it, but I don't have access to Jane's Small Arms Ammunition of the World today(Damn holidays :lol: ) and more in-depth information about it on the net is scarce. :(
Damn it's hard to find any more in-depth information about these cartridges. Couldn't find anything in the Jane's book....

Anyone able to help out with providing ballistic data etc?
Nek:
I beleive that you are looking in the wrong place. i believe it would be easier to find (at least MV) for these cartriges by looking at the rifles that fired them.
Just a thought
I already know the muzzle velocity for the ammo from those particular rifles. I want to know bc etc etc
