The .45 Thompson sub-machine gun and M3 sub machine gun (grease gun) were used in WW2, Korea, and Vietnam War. A sub-machine gun is called a SUB machine gun because it uses "pistol" ammunition. The M3 sub-machinegun looked exactly like a grease gun; hence the name.
the German did have 30 cal. luger pistols in WW2
a light machine gun is a fully automatic rifle that one man can operate. during ww2 the most common light machine gun was the BAR (browning automatic rifle) in 30 cal. or 3006 in todays lingo.

The most valued weapon of the Civil War to the average soldier and cavalry trooper was the Henry Repeating Rifle in 44-40 rimfire caliber. Many Union soldiers spent the equivalent of 4 months pay to privately aquire this lever action rifle. Col. Mosby of the Confederate Partisan Rangers strained every nerve to aquire these guns stealing many from the First DC Cavalry. Only 10,000 of these rifles were made during the war. They were so valuable and effective that they were carried by the bodyguards of both Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis.
7.62 is cal. 308. 7.62 was used after WW2 in the M14 rifle..WW2 used 30/06 cal.
I saw one on an auction recently.
Do you mean the 50 caliber BAR "Browning Assault Rifle?" Yes, the 50 Cal BAR was used in WWII.
The M1917 refers to many pieces of equipment. A bayonet, a helmet, a light machine gun, a 45 cal. revolver, an Enfield rifle,and a Browning water cooled machine gun. Both machine guns were 30 cal. as well as the Enfield rifle.

No. .338 vs .500 If you are referring to World War 2, then you probably mean the .308 bullet used in the British Enfield rifle, the typical infantryman's rifle used in World War 1 & 2. It was a rifle round that was 0.308 inch diameter. The "50 Caliber" was a 0.500 inch caliber bullet that was about 4 inches in length that was used in heavy machine guns that were used on tanks and aircraft. Suggestion- You may also have been thinking about a .30-06 Springfield, which the M33 Ball .50 Cal ammuntion is based upon. The .50 Cal is actually on a super scaled up version of it. But no, a .338 is in NO way a .50 cal.
No. The standard sniper rifle for the US was the 1903 Springfield, mounted with a telescopic sight. Later a version of the M-1 was scope mounted as well. All other nations that had snipers used their standard infantry rifle mounted with a telescopic sight.
