Probably just your ordinary 7.92 MM or as we know it in this country-8MM. Thats closer to 33 than the average run of the mill 32 revolvers which are nominally .312". OH, WELL, TYPOS happen.

I agree that the .33 is a fairly unusual caliber, and I'll bet that PPS isn't chambered for .33WCF. We certainly would prefer the most accurate description when it comes to online listings, for sure. But as others above note, typos do happen, and if you're gonna throw rocks, then at least get out of the glass house. :D

Gosh skyliner,


I was not 'Throwing Rocks' and I was not trying to be mean or rub anyone's nose into anything.

I simply find these typos to be amusing in themselves...I was not suggesting we set out to degrade the Seller or attack him or her personally, nor was I doing so.

Yes, I am a bad speller, and I make 'typos'.


Lighten up!

WHAT, YOU MEAN NONE OF YOU HAVE COLLECTED THE DIFFICULT TO FIND .33?? Well finally I have something on the experts here. I've been handloading for mine many years now and find them accurate and a very hard hitting round. I take down Elk and opossum with mine...often on the same day. My pot is never empty with my trusty .33 around.
