Knowing how ammunition works is essential to getting the most out of your firearm.Ammunition is measured by the bullet's diameter. For example, a 9 mm bullet is approximately 9,01 mm and a 40 S&W caliber bullet is 0.40 inches in diameter. Depending on the origin of its invention, ammunition is measured using millimeters or inches. 9 mm ammunition originates in Europe, whereas the 40 S&W caliber was invented in the United States.
