Some auction company sent me a dozen science fiction mags from the late 50's by accident.
There a quizzes in each one.
Turns out I have 3 rifles in 32-scruple.

They haven't made brass for those in a long time. So, nobody has scruples any more. Cry

That's because 32-Scruple is a European designation for what Americans call the 32-20 Winchester.  You think I'm joking - look it up. Roll Eyes  Scruple - a unit of weight equal to 20 grains, used by apothecaries.  Hunters that shot this caliber didn't care what they shot at.

Another caliber you don't see anymore is the 7pm Martini - shoots bullets about the size of a small olive, had a thick dinner jacket for good penetration.

In Africa you'd find the dolt-action 9pm Mouser.  Used for the big cats and coughed up bullets purrty fur.
