Anyone have list of both Rifle and Pistol calibers from smallest to largest?
All of them?
Don't forget shotgun shells.
No offense and none taken
If possible, I'm hoping that someone has a list of at-least the common calibers. Shotgun if y'all want
Wikipedia has some pretty good groups with photos.
Look up pistol or rifle ammunition or cartridges.
Ask C3 he collects and "Boards" ammo I think....

This isn't too bad a list:
or buy yourself a copy of "Cartridges of the World".
that is a very very very very very long list you are looking for .. hehehe
This is exactly what I was looking for, Thanks y'all!
If you get a reloading manual, you would also
have a short history of each cartridge,
as well as reloading specs and MV info.
Look for Lyman, Speer, Hornady, or Barnes.
Jay, the smallest round in my collection is a 2mm pinfire. The largest a 30mm that is chambered in a shoulder fired anti-tank rifle. (Actually, I have an inert 40mm Grenade Launcher round that is the fattest in my collection). In between those 2 cartridges are literally THOUSANDS of different cartridges. MOST of which are obsolete things that just did not work out, or were replaced by something that worked better.
My cartridge reference books are probably about 8 inches thick. Cartridges of the World is a good start. BTW, just when you are sure you have seen them all, someone will hand you a S&W .35 Auto, a Dardick Tround, a Colt 9.8mm ACP, a .45 Remington- Thompson, a .14 Alton Jones rimfire, a 32 GAUGE shotshell, or something that is not rimfire OR centerfire (look up lip-fire, cup-fire, Crispin, teat-fire, etc)
Some cartridges are scarcer than the guns that shot them. Guns are durable, cartridges get used up.
45/90 ...enough said ! Look out squirrels !
Here are a few- BT, the largest shotshell there is a 4 g. Dango- squirrels FEAR that!
I do enjoy a nice cartridge board,,, nice collection,, how many boards have you made up c3? I have a buddy that has several which he denotes by mfg., military, rifle, pistol, shotgun, etc., that can get very expensive and as you say, the rare ammunition is extremely difficult to find. He bought a Weatherby cartridge board from a dealer that went out of business years ago that is very nicely done.
About 7 boards. Most of my stuff I do not mount on boards, but keep as singles. There are any number of ways you can slice and dice a cartridge collection- by headstamp, by caliber, military, sporting, by bullet type, metric vs English, etc etc. Have known folks that only collect rimfires, one guy only collected rounds made by the US Cartridge Company- and one guy that had a sizeable collection of JUST .38 Specials. You might be surprised at the amount of variety there can be just in .38 Special.
I understand about how many different rounds in a certain genre, so to speak,,
he has boards just dedicated to Norma ammunition and I am amazed at how many types and calibers they make and his is nowhere near complete as he has indicated.
