At what point do shells stop being cartridges for a rifle or machinegun and become cannon shells? I found this link and found it interesting that there was a 20mm "sniper rifle." Although maybe it should be called a "sniper cannon."

Also it says it is a recoilless rifle. I understand how recoilless rifles work as they were used in WWII as and Anti-Armor weapon. But would this use the same shell as a say an AAA gun or whatever else fires a 20mm shell?

re

Shells are explosive, bullets arn't.

In general, 20mm+ are termed as shells.
