From what I've read, the majority of personal weapons in RWBY have some Dust component involved with them, even if it's not directly noticeable. Having it stored in cartridges and shells (like Crescent Rose's bullets, and Ember Celica's shells) would make it easily reloadable and transportable, though requiring some mechanism or time to swap out types. Unlike Weiss's Myrtenaster, which has the 6-Dust chamber design for flexibility at the cost of not being able to reload as easily in the heat of battle (that I've seen so far). I would assume, being skilled with their respective personally-built weapons, Ruby and Yang can control whether or not an actual projectile gets expelled when propulsive effects are desired.
