    Default Caliber sizes

    I was looking online and couldn't find a page that describes the sizes of the calibers and the strength of each size. For example, I am looking for something that shows a .22 next to a 9mm, next to a .38, next to a .357......etc...


    I would also like something along the lines of fps and lbs per sq inch. Something to gauge the relative strength off of.


    Can anyone recommend anything?


    Thanks in advance.

    These were only entries I found with side-by-side comparison pictures .
