Bullet Caliber Comparison Chart

Some of you all may be interested in this. The graphic is too large to post as an image so here is a direct link.

Nah, nothing - well, almost nothing - is too hard to handle with forum BBCode!  Just add the desired dimension(s) as parameters in the opening image tag and it'll scale for you:



To get this size image, I used the following BBCode:

Code: [Select]

[img width=1100]http://pinkhandguns.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/bulletcalibercomparison.jpg[/img]


The dimension(s) you want go in the opening tag, in the form {dimension}={size} with the value of the size being in pixels; e.g., in the code I used, the width of the image is set at 1,100 pixels.  If only one dimension is specified, the software will automatically scale the other dimension.

When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."

Thanks for the post fix.

Remember though, it isn't the size of the bullet, it is the powder behind it. :->

Good thing he doesn't use ## 58, 59, or 60!

Good thing for you.  You're a lawyer.  But bad for the rest of us.
