If you mean a .40 caliber bullet in a .32 caliber gun- no. The bullet would be 8 thousandths of inch too large to fit in the gun. Caliber refers to the diameter of the bullet, so a .40 caliber bullet is ABOUT .40 inches across, and a .32 bullet ABOUT .32 inches across.

Yes, a 45 caliber bullet is bigger than a 40 caliber bullet. A .45 is0.45 inches wide in diameter and a .40 is 0.4 inches in diameter.

The .40 caliber bullet is a little larger in diameter and is a little heavier (under most circumstances). The .40 will usually have more powder, velocity, and muzzle energy. Also, the .40 is designed for use in a semi-automatic and the .38 is a revolver cartridge.

.40 S&W cartridge, bullet diameter = .401" .380 ACP cartridge, bullet diameter = .355-.356" .32 ACP cartridge, bullet diameter = .311 - .312"

Caliber is in reference to the diameter of the bullet. A .40 (which is what I have) is .40 inches in diameter. A .50 caliber is .50 inches in diameter (half an inch). So a caliber is the inches in diameter. Not including the 9mm which I cannot stand

Size and relative power. A .40 caliber bullet is .40 of an inch and the entire cartridge is 28.8 millimeters long. A .50 caliber (handgun) bullet is .50 of an inch and the entire cartridge is 40.99 millimeters long. The .50 caliber has more powder, more velocity, and more muzzle energy.

The correct term is cartridge, not bullet- and the answer will depend on WHICH .40 caliber pistol.

Caliber means the diameter of the bullet. A .40 caliber cartridge has a bullet that is .40 inches in diameter. A 9mm cartridge has a bullet that is 9 millimeters in diameter. Yup...reminds me of Joe the Human Cannonball at the circus...Poor Joe died but they couldn't find a replacement of his caliber.

If you mean how heavy is the bullet in a .40 caliber cartridge, the answer is, it ranges from about 150 grains to about 180 grains.

The .40 is larger in diameter and (normally) has a heavier bullet.

A 40mm handgun would fire a bullet the size of a golf ball. No such critter. There IS a .40 caliber handgun (about 10mm). There are dozens of larger caliber handguns than .40 caliber. They include the .41, .44. .45, .455. .460, .475, .500- and several others.

Caliber refers to the size of the cartridge a gun fires. Indirectly, it speaks to the particular cartridge that the Gun is meant to use. There are several guns that are made in more than one caliber- A Model xyz pistol might be made in 9mm Parabellum, .40 S&W, and .45 ACP. Incidentally, caliber, when speaking of a rifle or handgun, refers to how wide the inside of the barrel is, in 100ths of an inch. So a .357 caliber uses a bullet that is 357/100ths of an inch wide. Guns developed in Europe generally used the metric system instead- a 9mm uses a bullet 9mm wide.

All of it is lethal. There is no one "magic" bullet.

Caliber is simply the diameter of the bullet in the cartridge. It can be expressed in hundredths or thousandths of an inch, such as .40 or .45, or it can be expressed in millimeters, such as 9mm or 10mm. As far as actually physically measuring it, the bullet's diameter can be measured with a caliber gauge.

It depends on several factors, but "about a mile" is a good average.

Varies from the 40's to the 70's

EASILY. We;ve done them with .22 Magnums before.

It depends on several factors, but a good rule of thumb is "about a mile."

the three bullets that shot him in the chest were 40. caliber pistol rounds

It depends on several factors, but "about a mile" is a good average.

It depends on several factors, the main one being the propellant charge.

Let's use the correct term- CARTRIDGE. Bullet is the PART of a cartridge that comes out of the end of the barrel. The 30-06 (usually pronounced as thirty ought six) is a .30 caliber rifle cartridge- meaning that the bullet is 30/100ths of an inch in diameter. It was developed in 1906. It was called that to help distinguish it from an earlier .30 caliber cartridge- the 30-40 Krag (which had a .30 caliber bullet, driven by 40 grains of black powder, and was created by the Krag/ Jorgensen Company) Naming practices tend to change over time, and are not always uniform. Good question, tho.

There are various difference, but the most common answer would be the .45 is .05 of an inch larger in diameter than a .40.

40 cal ACP (not CAP) is the same as 40 cal. S&W. ACP refers to 'automatice cartridge pistol' wheras S&W refers to Smith and Wesson, who also make the 40 cal. cartridge....

No. The 357 SIG magazine will not fit in a 40 caliber Glock such as the model 22.
