I would imagine that the actual projectile is still being developed too. Now they have more of an idea of what the "weaponized" gun can do they can better design a projectile to suit. It should be interesting, I wonder what the acceleration is like compared to a conventional gun. Even though it achieves a higher muzzle velocity it could be lower, as the projectile is accelerated evenly as it travels down the barrel.
As far as overshooting the horizon goes, why not use guided projectiles? They already have them, shouldn't be too hard to adapt so they can survive the EM field.

You made a point, I countered it. That is how discussion and debate works.
