    Standard bore diameter is usually measured from land to land. Some manufacturers decided to measure from land to groove or groove to groove in order to make their product appear "bigger" and therefore more appealing. Both a .38 and .357 bullet will both fit in the same bore, however one is measured differently from the other.
