Need help identifying these cartridges.

Looking to identify these cartridges.
i think the 2nd one is a 6mm ppc, i think the 4th one is a 300 h&h, 5th a 300 wetherby, and the 6th one a 458 win?

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

    Re: Need help dentifying these cartridges.

    I think you are right on the 4th one. The sixth is not a 458 Win. The 458 Win had a belt I believe. Loos like maybe an old black powder case like maybe a 45-120. The fifth one looks like a 378 Wby maybe.

    Taking a wild guess, the first is a .221 Fireball, the second is a .220 Russian.

    Edit: 3rd could be a plain ol' .308. 2nd is more likely a .22 PPC.

    i believe 1st is a 221 fireball, 2nd is a 6mm ppc (the neck looks wider than the 1st one and has a steeper shoulder angle than the 220 russian.), 3rd? (aint a 308 win), 4th a 300 H&H, 5th a 338-378 weatherby, 6th a 45-110? (too long for a 45-120 and too short for the 45-100), 7th 500 A-Square?, 8th 505 gibbs. The ones with ? marks i am not completely sure of, the ones without i am fairly confident are right.

    I think the last is a 505 Gibbs (base for the Cheytac series).

    That is what I thought too at first, the more I look at them I think #7 is the gibbs, #8 looks like .600 or bigger caliber.
