    Strictly speaking the decimal is important when discussing a .40 caliber round, which is about 1 mm larger in diameter than its more common 9mm cousin.

    40 caliber without the leading decimal (if such a caliber existed) would start to approach the 50 caliber, 16-inch diameter rounds that were the primary armament of the 1940’s era Iowa Class battleships.
