Caliber (bullet diameter in decimals of an inch or in millimeters) is only one indicator of wounding potential but not a very good one ( Fig, 2..5.6..-!). Caliber indicates bullet diameter, but not bullet length, and therefore does not disclose bullet mass. Caliber also is independent of bullet velocity and bullet construction.
