The first thing that comes to my mind for 9mm, .35, .40, and .45 auto pistols are:

9mm = 9x19mm aka 9mm Luger.
.35 = ??? Some kind of 9mm?
.40 = .40 S&W.
.45 = .45 ACP.

But they could be 9×25mm Dillon, .356 TSW (which is actually 9mm), .400 Cor-Bon, and .475 Wildey Magnum, or dozens of other possible combinations.

Clip and Magazine are a bit less ambigous...but very imprecise.   Some one has to say it since Haz isn't paying attention.
 

Exactly. There is also 9mm Makrov and .35 might mean .357 like in desert eagle..or even .38 special.

Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"

"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
— Daniel Webster

.35 could refer to .35 S&W Auto which is actually only .309 caliber just like a .32 ACP.

There are so many possibilities you can't expect anyone to know what you're talking about if you just say the bullet diameter, either actual or just what it's named after.

Congratulations Mauserman. I can't afford both and would have gone with just the big bore.

Go big or . . .









don't.   ;D

Mauserman, if you need load data for either round, PM me, I have loads from powder puff CAS loads to Velociraptor level.
