I took this picture some time back of all the cartridges I have at least one gun for.  I just now, had to look at it awhile to figure out what every one was.

I have added a 6.5X55, a .44 rem. mag. and a 7mm08. and .303 Brit. (I think thats all)

Your ammo looks like you would have any situation covered .

Okay deerman, here's my guesses, from L to R:
.22 short, LR, .38, .357, 223, .243, 6.5X55?, .257 wby, .270, 30-30, 30-06, 300 savage, 35whelen?, 410, 20, 12, slug, .54 

So, how many did I get right?  (I should note, I didn't cheat by comparing the photo to a reloading manual, just guessed from sight)  I know I got a couple right but some were sheer guesses.

Your turn:  I should note, two of the rifle cartridges are the same calibre, just different wt leads.

Wow, did I ever get lucky on my guesses!  Never would have guessed the 264 and 284.  Should have noticed the belted cartridge, but that wouldn't have helped me.
I couldn't tell .50 or .54, but I thought that might be a .58 minnie as it looked bigger, but I thought, naw, who's got a .58?  You do, haha.  Bet it'd be a great htg. rifle, eh?

There's some in the back row of my pick that may be tough.  Same parent cartridge on a couple, and remember, two of them are the same calibre, just different wt lead.
