legal calibers

What calibers are legal in Pa for harvesting small game? I am confused as to what handguns we are limited to. Thanks in advance.

Re: legal calibers

centerfire or rimfire under 23 caliber. Muzzle loader rifles or handguns 40 caliber and under. Remember that cap and ball revolvers do not load from the muzzle and would have to be 23 caliber or under.

There are no caliber restrictions for groundhog, except that you cannot use a shotgun with a single solid projectile.
