You shall not only take into account the caliber but also the barell length (often stated in caliber multiples). The longer the barrell, the greater the range, but sometimes less accurate (because the volley would suffer more deformation during fire if it is longer.

Also mounting has an influence (guns in quadruple mounts of french designs were perturbating the neighbour guns when firing).

Interesting post.
Also remember plunging fire, if a shell  hits and explodes on a deck it is more likely to do more damage then exploding against the hull etc.
Look what happened to my beloved Hood. Crying or Very sad  Crying or Very sad


I posted a really huge reply here and then lost it.

The short version was that deck hits are only damaging at long range and it is unlikely the the German projectile which sank HMS Hood could have penetrated a deck, it was only coming in at 13/14 degrees to the horizontal. A penetration of X turret barbette is far more likely.
