I dunno about that. There's no rule that says the round has to remain perfectly horizontal the whole time. Maybe the back end tilts upward and it comes up at a slant.

There are some pretty crazy loading mechanisms out there that involve rounds twisting around and moving along odd paths. Just look at the P90:

(despite the computer animation, the P90 is a real gun, and that's really how it operates)

I get what you're saying. At a glance, the space seems too constrained. But there are ways it could work, even with present-day technology limitations. Also, it might be that centuries of advancement have allowed for smaller bullets.
