Interesting take on it hhhopks.

Let’s see, during WWI, the US saved the collective European posterior with a piece of lead and copper .30” across.

The same sized piece of lead and copper did it again in WWII.

For years, during the cold war the US Imperial measurement of .30” kept citizens of West Berlin able to move about freely.

That is until the United Nations decided to standardize ammunition sizes, so now everything is 7.62mm…. which divided by 25.4 comes out to what??? Hmmmmm, That would be, ..... no wait for it,.......Yes, wait,....... .30”

Aside from the fact that most of my tools have both Metric and Imperial measurements on them.

Maybe there is something to be said for both methods of measurement.
