Re: Need help identifying these cartridges.

from wikipedia .505 Gibbs - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia it looks like the gibbs case is longer than the 375 h&h, i think #8 is the 505 gibbs.

Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

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

Re: Need help identifying these cartridges.

Here is some help....flip them over and read the headstamps. <grin> Just had to say it.

I figure there are no markings or they were made from a different parent case or you wouldn't ask.

Re: Need help identifying these cartridges.

Fourth for sure 300 H&H
Fifth probably 30-378 Weatherby, looks to be same caliber as 300 H&H and cartridge head bigger than H&H.
Sixth looks a lot like 9.3x74Rmm
Eighth is way larger caliber than seventh but you need a big bore expert on those two.
