Wow; i have never heard of that; on the contrary, to my understanding, the actual muzzle aperture marks the calibre (bore/gauge) and the bullet to fit there has a narrower diameter... assuming we are talking smooth non rifled barrels, obviously. Why would you have to add one centimeter to quote the gun's calibre ? .
