Actually, Canada, the United States and Many other countries use .223
caliber weapons, NOT .22  Its almost the same diameter bullet as your
standard groundhog killing kid gun, but has a much longer shell, with about
5 times the amount of powder.  (BTW for interest, calibre is measured in
decimals of an inch so a 22 is 0.22 of an inch.  which is approx. eqivalent
to 5.56 mm.  Generally outside of the States, metric is used.)
