Caliber is a term used to indicate the diameter of a bullet in hundredths of an inch. A bullet that is 30 hundredths of an inch (.30) in diameter is called a 30 caliber bullet. The term caliber is of English origin and is used by ammunition and firearm manufacturers in the United States. Firearms and ammunition of European origin use the metric system and would refer to a 30 caliber bullet as an 7.62mm bullet.
