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

    #3 is close to 7x57 Mauser but it almost looks to have the radius shoulders of a Weatherby. To my knowledge Weatherby had no cartridges without a belt.

    I like the looks of #7. It is close to a 458AR. I'd like a gun in that baby. The 458AR is 2.55 inches long, 0.3 shorter than 300 H&H and has same 0.532 rim. The cartridge in your picture looks not quite that short. http://ammoguide.com/?catid=605

    #8 may be the 505 Gibbs http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.505_Gibbs

    My best guess:

    #1 221 Remington Fireball

    #2 22 BR: 22BR Cartridge Guide within AccurateShooter.com

    #3 7x57 Mauser

    #4 300 H&H

    #5 30-378 Weatherby

    #6 9.3x74Rmm

    #7 458 AR

    #8 505 Gibbs

    I think you are right on all of them except for #2, i think it is a 6mm BR. The inside neck diameter looks bigger than the 221 fireball.

    third is a 6.5x55 it will have a sharper shoulder angle after it is fire formed. it the 300 h&h and the 30-378 were the only ones i am sure of.
