Weapon caliber

From PathfinderWiki
(Redirected from Stone (unit of measure))
A diagram illustrating relative firearm projectile types and sizes.

The size of a firearm's bore, known as its caliber, can be defined in terms of three different units.

  • The largest of Alkenstar's siege weapons, such as the Great Maw of Rovagug, can be measured in 3-inch stones (S).
  • The next smaller unit is ¼-inch pebble (P), with 12 pebbles to a stone.
  • Finally, a pebble constitutes 24 grains (G), the smallest unit of ballistic bore measurement.

While many personal firearm bullets are 1P in size or greater, the grain is a more common unit of measure since few of them are an even pebble in size.[1]
