Rifle Calibers
« on: December 07, 2016, 06:52:35 pm »
Interesting video.  A lot of these I wasn't familiar with.  And, I didn't realize it was animated until after I posted, but still might be interesting.



From the video description:

In this rifle ammunition comparison animation there are 90 different calibers, from very small to very, very big!! I did a previous ammunition comparison animation, with about 20 calibers, pistol and rifle. I got a lot of questions about missing calibers. I think this ammunition comparison shows all the missing calibers and many more. The colors are the same for all calibers, so that the different calibers can be compared better.

I think the largest rifle caliber is, the 20mm Vulcan. Compared to that, even the .50 BMG looks small :D

All the models are made in Autodesk Inventor, the animation is done with Autodesk Showcase.

As far as I could find out, all the dimensions are pretty good, which means the comparison should be very realistic.

Below is the list of all the calibers used in this ammunition comparison animation, that last two are no real rifle calibers, but I did add them to give a nice comparison view.

After the entire list of calibers, I show a couple of different ammunition comparisons, like 5.56x45 vs 7.92x39, all the large rimfire calibers, all the .22 calibers, all the "cannon" rounds etc etc

If you would like to see some other comparisons, or if you are still missing some calibers, let me know and I'll create another ammunition comparison video

    Maybe this is a better video, though it's not rifle-centric.

    I used to graph the ballistics on graph paper from muzzle to 1000 yards of various calibers and loads.
    This was pre-internet days.
    It was a hobby.

    Awesome hobby.  Sounds like you could have made a manual :)
