Difference Between .44 and .44-40


Difference Between .44 and .44-40—What is the difference between a .44 caliber and a .44-40?

The caliber of a rifle is its diameter of bore in hundredths of an inch, or in case there are three figures it is that many thousandths of an inch. A .44 caliber is therefore .44 hundredths of an inch in diameter. The .44-40 means .44 caliber with 40 grains of powder. This cartridge, however, has been mis-named a 44 as it is really a 42 caliber. A cartridge is not always the size it is supposed to be but the latest designs in this line have their diameter given in thousandths of an inch, or if of foreign make, in millimeters (m-m), and are supposed to be the exact caliber as given.
