Note: When using parameters, avoid the ambiguous abbreviation "N/A", and instead use "unknown" or "none". All subjective or qualitative judgements and numerical quantities or statistics must be cited to a reliable source (see WP:MILMOS#CITE). References for numerically converted parameters (e.g., |bullet=) can be appended using the corresponding ref parameter (e.g., |bullet_ref=). Sources for the ballistic performance table, and more general sources, can be included using the |balsrc= parameter.

General parameters:

  • name – the formal name of the cartridge.
  • imageoptional – an image of the cartridge. The image must be given in the form [[Image:Example.jpg|300px]]; in particular, the thumb attribute must not be selected.
  • captionoptional – the text to be placed below the image.
  • origin – the country or place where the cartridgeoriginated or was first manufactured.
  • type – the type of cartridge or its designed use (e.g. "Pistol", "Rifle", "Hunting", etc.).

Service history parameters:

  • serviceoptional – the period (usually given in years) when the cartridge was in service.
  • used_byoptional – the countries, armed forces, or other groups using the cartridge; this may be omitted for cartridges employed only in their country of origin.
  • warsoptional – any wars during which the cartridge saw service.

Production history parameters:

  • designeroptional – the person or group responsible for designing the cartridge.
  • design_dateoptional – the date (usually given as a year) when the cartridge was designed.
  • manufactureroptional – the manufacturer of the cartridge.
  • production_dateoptional – the period (usually given in years) when the cartridge was produced.
  • numberoptional – the number of cartridge of this type that were manufactured.
  • variantsoptional – any variant models of the cartridge.

Specification parameters:

  • is_SI_specsoptional – "yes" if the specifications are entered in SI units; any other value causes it to be interpreted as English units.
  • parentoptional – the cartridge that the cartridge was based on, if any.
  • case_typeoptional – the type of case used for the cartridge (e.g. rimmed, rimless, straight, bottlenecked, etc.).
  • bulletoptional – the diameter of the bullet used in the cartridge, expressed in mm or in; only include the number, and not the units of measurement, and omit any commas.
  • neckoptional – the neck diameter of the cartridge, expressed in mm or in; only include the number, and not the units of measurement, and omit any commas.
  • shoulderoptional – the shoulder diameter of the cartridge, if any, expressed in mm or in; only include the number, and not the units of measurement, and omit any commas.
  • baseoptional – the base diameter of the cartridge, expressed in mm or in; only include the number, and not the units of measurement, and omit any commas.
  • rim_diaoptional – the rim diamter of the cartridge, expressed in mm or in; only include the number, and not the units of measurement, and omit any commas.
  • rim_thickoptional – the rim thickness of the cartridge, expressed in mm or in; only include the number, and not the units of measurement, and omit any commas.
  • case_lengthoptional – the case length of the cartridge, expressed in mm or in; only include the number, and not the units of measurement, and omit any commas.
  • lengthoptional – the overall length of the cartridge, expressed in mm or in; only include the number, and not the units of measurement, and omit any commas.
  • case_capacityoptional – the volume of the casing, expressed in cm3 or grains of water; only include the number, and not the units of measurement, and omit any commas.
  • riflingoptional – typical rifling to stabilize the bullet fired from the cartridge.
  • primeroptional – the type of primer used in the cartridge (e.g. large pistol, small rifle, rimfire, etc.).
  • max_pressureoptional – the maximum chamber pressure of the round, expressed in MPa or psi; only include the number, and not the units of measurement, and omit any commas.
  • pressure_methodoptional – the methodology used to measure pressure, such as SAAMI, CIP, EPVAT, SCATP.
  • max_pressure2optional as above, second pressure with method
  • pressure_method2optional as above, second pressure's method
  • max_pressure3optional as above, third pressure with method
  • pressure_method2optional as above, third pressure's method
  • max_cupoptional – the maximum chamber pressure of the round, expressed in CUP; only include the number, and not the units of measurement, and omit any commas. Note that this parameter is not affected by the is_SI_specs parameter.
  • fillingoptional – the explosive filling material of the shell, if any.
  • filling_weightoptional – the weight of the explosive material of the shell, if any.
  • detonationoptional – for explosive shells, the detonation trigger type (e.g. "timer", "pressure", "motion sensor").
  • yieldoptional – for explosive shells, the yield (in tons of TNT) of the device.

Ballistic performance parameters:

Ballistic data for up to five different weight bullets can be specified; it may be provided in either SI or English units, but this choice must be consistent for all five sets. The x in the field name should be replaced with 1–5 as displayed in the template format shown above (e.g. bw1, bw2, btype1, btype2, vel1, vel2, en1, en2, etc.):

  • is_SI_ballisticsoptional – "yes" if the energy and velocity ballistics data is entered in SI units; any other value causes it to be interpreted as English units.
  • bwunitoptional – "gram" if the weights are given in grams; any other value causes them to be interpreted as grains.
  • bwroundoptional – specify the number of digits after the decimal point in the converted weight (the default is 0).
  • bwxoptional – the weight of the bullet for given data, expressed in grams or grains; only include the number, and not the units of measurement.
    • btypexoptional – the type of bullet (e.g. JHP, FMJ, BHP, etc.).
    • velxrequired if bw field is specified – velocity of the bullet at the muzzle, expressed in m/s or ft/s; only include the number, and not the units of measurement, and omit any commas.
    • enxrequired if bw field is specified – energy of the bullet at the muzzle, expressed in J or ft·lbf; only include the number, and not the units of measurement, and omit any commas.
  • test_barrel_lengthoptional – the length of the barrel used when generating the ballistics data.
  • balsrcoptional – the source from which the ballistics data was obtained.
