#1 Buck is about 30 caliber
#2 Buck is about 27 caliber
#3 Buck is about 25 caliber
#4 Buck is about 24 caliber
F shot is about 22 caliber
T shot is about 20 caliber
BB shot is about 18 caliber (.175-.182")

That's about all that's useful.

There are quite a few different reference charts available, if you search google and choose the 'images' tab.
