Default Your odd caliber

We all know of the popular calibers and we all have one that we love. I'm a .45acp guy here. But we also have a caliber that is a bit odd that we have fondness for also. I actually have more fondness for the odd balls then the regular guys. Curious as to what your odd ball is.

Would guess my favorite odd ball that I own is my .480Ruger. A great round for hunting and shooting.

It depends what your defintion of odd is too

in my mind my 357 Magnum is an internationally odd caliber for a handgun and can be found (almost) only in american revolvers.

But I love it so to me it balances perfectly power with controlability.
in my mind it is the perfect caliber as it is the most powerful one you can buy that's not so powerful it will be a disincentive to train.

.32 acp has really been overshadowed by .380, and pretty much relegated to lower quality pistols such as jennings and kel-tec, but I have a little inox Beretta Tomcat that I'm quite enamored with. Great little pocket pistol, with solid construction and a nice finish.

This is not my weapon, but my father will back me up on this I think. My grandfather has an odd weapon that uses 44-40 rounds. The old cowboy action rounds. I refer to these as odd only because they can be used in rifles and revolvers.

I've been messing with the 300blackout for a while now but I had a mis-hap deer hunting the other day and I'm considering selling the whole setup.
