    On the application, I would write the full name of the cartridge, i.e .270 Winchester and .270 Winchester Short Magnum, non interchangeable.

    I guess my problem is the term caliber. Caliber designates the diameter of the bullet. So if I took a 7mm08 and a 7mm Rem I have two guns of the same caliber.
    If the term was changed to no two firearms of the same cartridge it would be easy.

    All I have ever needed was the preapproved SAPS.
