4.2x30mm R Golden Gun is a special type of ammunition for firearms, which is not classified as a Pistol, Rifle or Shotgun caliber at all, instead being part of the (X) special caliber category. It was designed for, and is only compatible with, the elusive Golden Gun.
Ammunition in this caliber is extremely rare; so rare, in fact, that it is not produced in any of the Mazes' factories at all, and appears to be of artisanal construction, with gold-plated brass cases, and special, small-caliber, gold-plated explosive bullets which are designed to detonate a short while after impact, so that the bullet has enough time to penetrate some distance into the intended target, causing the bullet to explode inside the target rather that on it. Although there is no part of the projectile that is specifically designed to defeat armor, the effect is so impressive and devastating that it is often given the moniker of armor piercing explosive (or AP/explosive).
The identity of the person or persons manufacturing these rounds is unknown.
This caliber may also be known as 4.2mm Golden Gun, 4.2mm Scaramanga or simply 4.2x30mm R.
4.2x30mm R bullets cause localized explosions. See Explosives for more details.

4.2x30mm R Golden Gun ammunition cannot be purchased in gun shops and weapon shops, nor can it be handloaded. As they appear to be made in a completely artisanal fashion, such ammunition can never be found in boxes, bulk cans, or any other kind of packaging; only as single, loose rounds.
