Physics. You are converting chemical energy to mechanical motion which involves inertial energy of mass, (bolt, gas piston if applicable, recipricating parts), stored energy, springs, friction, etc. These are all tuned to the application needed for the weapon and desired cyclic rate. Ammunition is generally a parameter constant in design stages to keep reliability and functionality.
