Largest Civilian Caliber Round

Another question from my son. What is the largest caliber round, permitted by federal law, that a civilian may possess?

I am guessing in the .50 cal range, such as used in black powder rifles and smooth bores.

I don't know what's permitted by law, but I do know that blackpowder muzzleloaders go up to .75 cal for the common British Land Pattern muskets (brown bess) or about .80 cal for some rarer muskets.

I know the .50 cal. BMG is the largest legal modern smokeless round (except in California). I don't think that black powder guns are covered by the same laws, because the majority of replica long arms are over .50 cal.
