Just curious if someone has a reference list or something to that effect on the list of calibers from the smallest to the biggest. Almost like a wrench chart ( I never was any good with fractions). Also anything related to certain calibers that are interchangable?

I actually have a box of .460 Weatherby mags that I found at a Garage sale, I bought them for the sheer novelty of them and I think I paid 3 bucks for the 20 rds....

Great book, I just sit there and read it


Smallest is gonna be one of the .10 Eichelburgers, don't remember which one but I am not looking it up now. The largest is gonna be the .950 JDJ 3500 grains at 2200 fps

The handgun is quite good, I can't think of any missing that aren't black powder crossovers like 10mm Montenegrin or something ...

The rifle could use some work. I don't see 8*50 or 8*56 (oops) Austrian Mannlicher for example, and these would qualify as strongly as 7.65*54 Argentine...

ETA: Just noticed that the oldest military cartridge still in use is missing... Oops...
