Default Coilguns

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coilgun

Google search for "coilgun" leads to some attempts to make coilguns.

How far has development of coilguns advanced, in terms of?:-
* Power / range / ability to make a hole in things
* Weight and bulk, including onboard power supply / battery
* How many shots per minute from one gun
* How long from switching the gun on to first shot

I found this list of attempts to make coilguns: http://www.coilgun.ru/

(Google search result for "gauss rifle" (in quotes) is grossly cluttered with videogame matter.)

We're decades away from decent coilguns surely, no?
