Ammunition comes in many different calibers, each designed for a specific purpose. While some calibers are more common than others, there are a few unique calibers that stand out for their unusual features or specialized uses. Here are five of the most unique ammo calibers:
- .17 HMR: The .17 Hornady Magnum Rimfire (HMR) is a small-caliber rimfire cartridge that was introduced in 2002. It is known for its high velocity and flat trajectory, which make it popular for varmint hunting and target shooting.
- .50 BMG: The .50 Browning Machine Gun (BMG) is a large-caliber cartridge that was originally designed for use in machine guns. It is known for its immense power and long range and is used today in anti-materiel rifles and other heavy weapons.
- .410 bore: The .410 bore is a unique shotgun shell that is often used for small game hunting and trap shooting. It is the smallest shotgun shell size and is often used in youth and beginner firearms due to its low recoil.
- 9x18mm Makarov: The 9x18mm Makarov is a relatively uncommon cartridge that was developed by the Soviet Union in the 1940s. It is used in several Soviet-era firearms, including the Makarov pistol, and is still used today in some parts of the world.
