Small Arms

Small Arms
Small arms ammunition (SAA) ranges in size from the ubiquitous .22 rimfire to the truly gargantuan 700 nitro express elephant gun. And just about every size in between. The calibres, types, headstamps, experimentals, unknowns and hairbrained variations are legion. Technically speaking small arms ammunition actually encompasses ammunition up to 25.4mm in calibre. But realistically speaking not even Arnold Schwartzenegger fires one of those calibres from the hip or shoulder.
