By request, I made this up tonight:

Rimfire rounds along-side their parent cartridge (ie: .22 Mag is parent to .17 HMR):

It would be great to get these all in one shot. Anybody have all of these?

 

It would also be good to have a .22 Hornet, .17 Hornet, and .223 in there for reference, with a .20 PRACTICAL for good measure!

 

Heck, if someone is REALLY ambitious, they could throw in a .19 Calhoon and a .19 Badger.

 

 

 

 

Here's another one to add to the mix:

and another:

22LR-vs-22WMR-vs-223-Remington-488x600.j

 

22LR, 22WMR, 223Rem


(LOTS OF ROOM THERE BETWEEN THE .223 AND THE .22 MAGNUM! WHAT FITS IN THAT SLOT? .17 WSM, .17 HORNET, .22 HORNET, .20 PRACTICAL, AND ALL THE CALHOONS! NOT SURE ABOUT THE .17 FIREBALL. THIS DOES NOT EVEN INCLUDE THE "MINK" AND "SQUIRREL" CARTRIDGES.)
