Hans is right, Çap means “Caliber” and Normal is their equivalent to “Ball”.

Like Fede, I also think Hans was right in his meanwhile deleted post.
My method: I entered the German words for cartridge (and later projectile) in Wikipedia and switched from the German text to the existing Turkish version. Did not understand it, of course, but from context, the meaning “caliber” became very plausible.

Pronounced " chap"…as in
" chumhuriyeti" ( republic)
C with cedilla in Turkish is used for “ch” sound as in English.
