Can anybody list all the rounds that can be referred to when somebody says .30 cal?
.30 caliber - Search results - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
7.62 Russian Nagant(pistol)
.308 Winchester/ 7.62x51
I'm sure there are 5 or 6 more...
The big difference is in the U.S., we measure the grooves, in metric they measure the lands. So a U.S. .30 cal bullet is .308, in most of the world it is .311.
Edit:Many 7.35 are classed as .30, I did not include them...
"7.5X55" Swiss also uses a .308 bullet. Makes reloading easier for us Swiss Rifle owners......
depends on the context.
30 cal is a caliber it refers to a bullet with a diameter of .308" there are more 30 caliber cartridges out there then just about any other.
Forgot the 7.5x55 and 7.5x54 French.
Obsolete US military round, WW I, the .30 Pedersen.
what about the great CZ52/tokarev pistols...7.62x25 fast lil rd. a blast to shoot!but when i hear someone say .30cal i think of the BMG 1919
7.62X38R (Nagant revolver) actually uses a .32 caliber bullet. At least our handloads do. The .308 bullet won't be very accurate, being too loose in the bore.
.30 Luger and .30 Mauser(Or Tokarev auto- pistols)
7.63 mauser..is the same as .30mauser?
Yep. The Russian Tokarev was about the same- I think 1 grain lighter bullet. Have friend that brought a Chinese Tok home from RVN (also brought a Chinses Tok bullet home with him, hard way) Got him 2 boxes of the 7.63 Mauser ammo, made his day.
