Both these permits treat B/BB as caliber (or guage) references? Am I missing something or is B short for BBL or Buckshot?

B and BB are sizes of shot, bigger than most birdshot, smaller than most buckshot.

But really, why would it matter on a fake license anyway?

Just never heard of B shot. Is a shotgun BB the same as air rifle BB?

Where did you find these? Wouldn't mind slapping one on a friends bumper when he's not looking. :43:

Zombie meme = cultural cul de sac.

One day, pop culture will stop going in circles in the Zombie cul de sac and will move down the road. I look forward to that day with great anticipation.

B is not what BB guns shoot. BB and BBB are just measurements of shot sizes. They are close to the size of a air rifle. I would niot feel safe using BB sized shot that is .18 in diameter in a rifle designed to shoot .177

BB = BB

B is smaller then BB
as
BB is smaller then BBB

Size B is 0.17" (right between #1 and BB)

This is not 0.177" however, as the measurement is different by 0.007

I wasn't talking about BB size. Just mentioning that B would prolly fall somewhere between BB and 1.

The steel shot table doesn't list a B. It goes 1 (.16) to Air Rifle (.177) to BB (.18). So I was guessing B and air rifle were prolly @ the same.

Speaking of shot sizes, do anyone know where I can buy a reference sheet of some type like the pictures posted above by Turo (http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showpost.php?p=8674637&postcount=3). Maybe someone who sells reloading supplies?

I'm looking for something hard plastic and either have true scale pictures or perhaps small holes to represent actual/correct physical size of different shot.
