Wow, nothing confusing or stupid about that...

So at some time in the past, although everyone involved understood that 36ga is actually about .506 caliber and that .410 is about 68ga and also knew that previously the 36ga had referred to an entirely different cartridge from the .410; someone decided to conflate the two anyway for very questionable reasons.

Well, that's an interesting bit of trivia, I suppose.
