    All I know is .22 is small, 9mm is medium and .40 and .45 are pretty damn big.

    also, do each of those calibers come in grains....more grains means heavier bullet?
     
  2. 7

    7 First comes smiles, then lies. Last is gunfire.

    none of my professors will allow to use it as a reference in term papers because there's no guarantee it's 100% accurate :o

    sucks. Mine were the same, until I showed them the study comparing wiki and Encycolpedia britannica (I think it was that one) that showed that they are essentially the same in terms of quality and accuracy of articles.

    I can't use wikipedia in any of my papers either. There is a lot of wrong and misleading articles out there. I mainly use it for quick references.
