    That list just looks like it is smallest caliber to largest.

    I was assuming it was in numerical order. For instance on that list a 25 is bigger then a 223. Maybe I'm just having a moment of stupidity.

    That list does indeed appear in caliber - from smallest to largest.

    Also keep in mind that "strongest to weakest" is entirely subjective, too.

    Does speed = strong? Ft. Lbs of energy at the target? What distance is the target?

    You'd have to narrow down your fields quite a bit in order to make a standardized test.

    Then you have to determine how you'd go about choosing the projectile weight/s and the powder loading behind the bullet.

    You can get a .45ACP to produce less terminal energy than a .38Special if you work at it...

    In short, someone's "strength test" would be entirely subjective to that person and that person's opinion.

    Nothing about this is even remotely concrete... just a snapshot in time of some examples..









    And, "yes," a 10mm is the Chuck Norris of auto's.

    Listing it just by caliber won't tell one much as far as "weakest to strongest" goes. I mean .380 ACP, 9mm, 38 spl, and .357 mag are all about the same caliber but certainly not the same "strength". Furthermore, you can have a range of loads for each cartridge. Calculating the muzzle energy for each load and sorting them is probably the most objective way to do it; even though muzzle energy by itself doesn't tell the whole story.
