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

Re: Need help identifying these cartridges.

Well had I gotten the first one right I would have been right on the third. I knew that 6.5x55 looked like a 6.5x55 but the 6.5x50 has about the same angles. that 22 PPC didn't seem to have enough body taper in the picture for a PPC. When I looked at the dimensions of a PPC against a BR or BRX I determined BRX based on the taper, or lack of and the shoulder angle. I considered all of those except the 4.6x30 which I have never even heard of, and that is odd, because I have at least seen something written of just about any cartridge I see. Learned something new. Thanks for updating us!

I also have never heard of the 4.6x30, it took the guy that got it right like 30 guesses at least to get it right.

Re: Need help identifying these cartridges.

Had time for further inspection on the measurement and vis comparison chart. I STILL say the second is a BRX. Too fat and too little taper for a PPC. I will buy that the 4.6x30 is that. and my first instinct was that the third was a 6.5x55. did they show a picture of the case head markings?
