What caliber weapon killed Seth Rich?

Latest news
It can be difficult to ascertain the caliber of bullet after it hits something. Even if you recover the entire undamaged bullet, you only know how big it is and not necessarily what specific round it was. For example, 9mm and .380 ACP shoot the same size projectile, 9mm has a slightly longer case and can have heavier bullets though there is a lot of overlap between the two.

When the bullet is smashed to hell or fragmented from hitting bone, as tends to be the case, or opened up in the case of hollow points, it’s substantially more difficult to determine the specific round. If the base of the bullet is intact they could determine it was, say, a .30 caliber. That narrows it down, but not enough to be definitive. 9mm, .380 ACP, .38 Special, .357 Mag, .357 Sig, .38 Super, etc. are all roughly .30 caliber handgun rounds.

Now, if they found shell casings and are keeping that under wraps for some reason, that is indeed fishy.
