I can't answer your query, but maybe you should google "bore, caliber, & calibre".OK then answer the question I posted in post #3 of this thread.
Go back and read post #9I can't answer your query, but maybe you should google "bore, caliber, & calibre".
Comes under the heading of the "build a man a fire and he will stay warm for a night, but set the man on fire and he will be warm for the rest of his life". Or something like that.
Go back and read post #9One of the definitions in Wikipedia for caliber is "the approximate internal diameter of the barrel". Further down, it mentions artillery caliber as the length of the barrel as a multiple of barrel diameter i.e. a 4 inch 50 caliber would be a 4 inch diameter barrel 200 inches long. Apparently, for handguns, caliber and bore are approximately the same.
I am not an expert, but I read pretty good.
There is a reason that a modern ".38 caliber" bullet has a bore of .357 inches rather than .38".Exactly my point, the bore is .357 but caliber is .38 so the bore is not the same as the caliber.
The gauge of a shotgun describes the number of lead balls the diameter of the barrel, that it would take to weight a pound.I have heard bore and gauge used interchangeably with shotguns, and do not believe this to be correct usage either.
