    I don't know how many times, me or one of my hunting buddies has stumbled across a piece of brass and then we play "name that caliber" without looking at the headstamp. It's typically pretty easy to get close, but sometimes a 25-35 or some other old piece of brass will throw you off.

    Well, Here is a picture of a few pieces of brass that you all can try to deduce electronically. They are in ascending order of caliber size from left to right.

    If these are too easy, I can dig out the bullet collection and really try to stump you.

    You got the 7mm Rem Mag, 300 WSM and the 50 Beowulf.

    Keep trying on the others.

    You got them all, except Number 2, I figured that one would be tough.

    #6 is a 338-300 RUM (Edge)

    You almost had them,

    .243, ??, 7/08, 7mm Rem Mag, 300WSM, 338/300 RUM 33AM and 50 Beowulf.

    I need to make them tougher for you guys.

    Let's see who can figure out #2, It is bigger than a .243 and smaller than a .284 . Thats all the hints for now.

    It looks to short to be a 6.8SPC, 6.5 or 270PPC maybe?

    1. 243 win
    2. 6.5 Grendel AKA 6.5PPC
    3. 7mm-08
    4. 7mm rem mag
    5. 300 wsm
    6. 338 Edge
    7. 33AM
    8. 50 Beowolf Which looks like it needs a little more crimp or something because of the bullet buldge.
