Instead of the Russian dimensions of the 7.62 (.311), make it more of a .308x39. One could take advantage of the expanded bullet choices for reloading, yet still have a weapon that doesn't kick you too hard for the needed task(s).

That would require new barrels for already existing guns though, so additional expense would be a limiting factor in the success of the "new" chambering.

There may be a reasonable alternative already, and I'm not aware of it.
