    Curious choices in sorting order.

    They’re sorted roughly by overall length. There’s also a rifle one: http://imgur.com/7fMvn.jpg

    I’m unsure of the original source either. I thought I first saw them on wikipedia, but couldn’t find the cite.

    I agree with JohnOC, but it’s entirely awesome anyway.

    Interesting, never seen it ordered that way. Not a clue where/why either… 🙂

    That .455 Webley round is informative.

    With that fat, heavy conical bullet sporting such a distinct rearward weight bias, its yaw rate must have been impressive. I’ll bet it swapped ends within an inch of impact…

    Pretty sure that’s from Drake’s massive collection of cartridges http://www.youtube.com/user/DrakeGmbH

    Every news room in America should print out that awesome image and post it in every, cough, reporters cubicle. Maybe that would convince them there are calibers other than milli 9.
