What caliber can you shoot in USPSA/IPSC

Recommended Posts

Ive seen the usual 9mm, 9mm +P+/ Major, and 40 s&W, but what other calier can you shoot. Does it only matter if it make PF or is there a minimum caliber requirement?

minimum caliber for minor is 9mm. minimum for major is 9 only in open or 40 in non-compensated4c3d63504db0ba01377a1837e4bb5a94.jpg

The minimum cartridge case dimension for handguns to be used in
USPSA matches is 9x19 mm. The minimum bullet diameter is 9 mm
(.354 inches)   {Rule 5.1.2}
 
Refer to D1 through D6 in the 2014 Handgun Rules for Division specific requirements.

so if minimum dimensions are .354 you could shot .357 sig if you wanted to.

Or a .355 or .356     😇

 

Awfully expensive brass, though, isn't it ?

Yes, 357Sig is the minimum caliber allowed for Major PF in Limited and L10.

Minimum doesn’t equal “only”

 

There’s a video out there of a guy shooting a match with a desert eagle....

My favorite is the guy shooting the 500 S&W revolver.  The spectators just can't stop laughing...

yes, but garands don't actually have strippers, the whole clip slides into the mag well, and pings out 🙂  The ping is what makes them cool 🙂
