What are the different rifle calibers?
There are over 1500 different cartirdges that are/have been made. Calibers run the range from .17 Hornady to the .700 Nitro express.
You would like a chart showing the velocity trajectory and other info of rifle calibers ThanksLance?
So would I, Lance- and I have been a serious collector for many years. The problem is, there are thousands of different calibers, with millions of different loadings (bullet/powder) that will produce different velocities and trajectories. And there is no ONE list. However, if you are seeking information on a particular caliber, pleae post that here, and we will try to help.
Yes, if somebody says ".22 rifle" they almost certainly mean a rifle chambered for the .22 long rifle (or .22LR) round. The .22LR is a rimfire, as are the .22 short, .22 long, .22 CB, the .22WRF (Winchester Rim-Fire), and even the .22 Magnum (properly called the .22 Winchester Magnum Rimfire or .22 WMR). There are other calibers of rifles that use bullets about the same bore size, but they have different names. They are…
Yes it is possible. An air soft gun will not kill you but a pellet rifle is capable if killing a person. Pellet rifles come in several calibers. .177, .20, .22, .25, 9mm, 45 cal and 50 cal. The last 3 calibers are fired from a PCP pellet rifle. This rifle (PCP) uses a scuba tank to charge the rifle with 3000 psi of air. All of these pellets are capable of injury or death.
While the rimfire cartridge was popular at one time, and there were more than 50 different rimfire cartridges, in different calibers, ranging from 2mm (about .08 caliber) to larger than .56 caliber. Today there are only about 7 different rimfire calibers still being loaded- the 17, 17 HMR, the .22 Short. Long, Long Rifle, the .22 WRF, and the .22 WMR. As far as different makes and models of rimfire rifles, there have been THOUSANDS…
As much as the retailer charged after their markup. The question is so vague as to be virtually impossible to answer. When you say rifle, you could be talking about anything from a .22 up to a .50 BMG rifle, and even a larger, NFA Class II Destructive Device. On top of there, there are varying loads in different calibers, which will affect the cost, as well.
