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 Smith & Wesson is a 10x22mm cartridge, whereas the .45 ACP would measure 11.65x23 in metric measurements. The .45 is a larger round, and also a much slower round.
would like to see a picture of 45 and 44 40 caliber shell side be side to compare the to bullets together for height and size.
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.
A glock 45 is a .45 caliber pistol, which fires a 45 caliber round. The glock 10mm fires 10mm rounds, which are .3945 caliber. Which is slightly smaller than the .40 caliber. Both of the two calibers, .45 and 10mm, are the 2 mosst expensive caliber weapons of glock. A 10mm is used mainly for law enforcement. You can fire rapidly with a Glock 10mm and be more accurate than you would with a Glock .45 caliber simply because the glock 10mm will have less recoil than the Glock .45 will. The Glock .45 will most likely do more damage though. Please Correct Me If I Am Wrong. Thanks, Bronson.
Either platform can be larger than the other. The 45 has the larger projectile. Caliber is defined as the diameter in fractions of an inch, so .40 caliber is smaller in diameter than .45 caliber. Caliber can also be defined in the metric system, measured in milimeters. The .40 caliber cartridge is equivalent to 10mm in diameter. As noted, the size of a handgun can vary widely within one caliber, so it is perfectly reasonable to have a smaller handgun crafted in a larger caliber.
Generally speaking, the .45 caliber bullet is larger in diameter and heavier than a 9mm bullet.
my opinion is the 45 ACP round has more knock down powder then the 40 caliber
If you are talking about a PCP (PreCharged Pneumatic) rifle. With a .45 caliber pellet, then "Yes" It can. I don't believe there is a 40 Caliber pellet gun.
Neither is "better". They are each fine in their own right.
no, a 45 caliber is way more powerful than a 40 caliber Actually, it depends. The following is copied from another answer of mine: The muzzle energy from a .45 caliber round can vary between 350 to a little over 500 ft-lbs, with velocites from about 850 feet per second to over 1000 FPS. The .40 caliber round can range from about 480 to about 570 ft-lbs of energy with velocities ranging from about 1000 FPS to about 1400 FPS. So, in short, it depends on the specifications of the particular cartridges you are comparing.
45 has the larger projectile. Size of the handgun will vary.
The .45 caliber is bigger in diameter. If you mean weight. The .45 caliber is generally heavier. However there are some lightweight .45 caliber bullets that are lighter than .357 caliber bullets. Generally speaking .45 caliber bullets weigh between 180 - 230 grains. While .357 caliber bullets generally weigh between 158 - 180 grains. If you are talking about diameter, the .357 caliber bullets are approximately 0.357 inches in diameter. The .45 caliber is approximately 0.450 inches in diameter. Again, using this measure, the .45 caliber is the larger bullet.
85-40 = 45 and 45+45 = 90
Caliber refers to the diameter of a bullet (bullet is the part of a cartridge that is fired out of the gun). A .223 caliber bullet is .223 inches across. It is normally used as a rifle cartridge. a .45 caliber bullet is more than twice as wide as a .223, and is usually used in pistols. The .223 is lighter- it weighs about 1/4 of a .45 bullet, and they are different shapes- .223 is usually pointed, the .45 is rounded.
The short answer is no. The longer answer is, you might be able to get a .40 caliber cartridge to fire from a .45 caliber gun, but it may damage the gun, and even if it doesn't damage the gun, it will cause other problems. In general (with only a few exceptions) you should never try to fire any cartridge in any gun other than a gun designed for that caliber.
The most basic answer is, a 9mm has a smaller diameter. Other differences, (in most cases) less muzzle energy, smaller and lighter bullet, higher velocity.
The muzzle energy from a .45 caliber round can vary between 350 to a little over 500 ft-lbs, with velocites from about 850 feet per second to over 1000 FPS. The .40 caliber round can range from about 480 to about 570 ft-lbs of energy with velocities ranging from about 1000 FPS to about 1400 FPS. So, in short, it depends on the specifications of the particular cartridges you are comparing.
Assuming the question is in regard to firearms and ammunition, you can read the "caliber" of a round as a decimal how wide the bullet is in inches. So a .40 caliber round is .4 inches wide, or about 10.16 millimeters wide. A .45 caliber round would be .45", so a little bit fatter than the .40 caliber round. The caliber doesn't tell the whole story of a round though, it doesn't say how long the bullet is, how heavy, how big the casing behind the round is, how much kinetic energy is hits with, etc. The .40 S&W round has an average of 425 ft/lbs of energy right at the muzzle, while the .45 ACP, a "bigger" round, has about 400 ft/lbs.
The GCF of 30, 45, and 90 is 15. One way to approach this is to look at the difference between 30, 45, and 90. The difference between 30 and 45 is 15. The difference between 45 and 90 is 45. The greatest common factor cannot be larger than the smallest difference between the numbers and must be a factor of the difference. The smallest difference is 15. Since 30, 45, and 90 are divisible by 15, the greatest common factor is 15.
Vary from .22, .25, .30, .40, .355, .45
Since 40 + 5 = 45 and 50 - 5 = 45, 45 is exactly between 40 and 50. It is not closest to either number.
Given proper shot placement, none.
