This probably has been done before but another one can’t hurt. I like to see pictures of different cartridges next to each other so I have been trying to collect a variety. Here is what I have so far (unfortunately only a few are mine). I think these are some of the more common cartridges and would like to see others compared side by side. Post a picture of if you have a different collection (I am sure some here will need to take a panoramic picture). :D

I need a pic of mine, I have two lines (one for pistols, one for rifles) about 20 cases per lineup. Unfortunately, mines brass, not loaded ammo. I'll still put it together.

There's a pic on THR somewhere of someone who has a room of cartridges, at least a few hundred different ones. Could take a bit to dig it up.

It's funny I've just been sorting a boat load of brass tonight. I thought I'd mention a few.
.243
22-250
30cal M1 carbine. (got a bunch of those).
.44mag.
.30 30
Sig rounds (not sure of the caliber though, couldn't read the head stamp)
And my big find of the day was some .460. (Now that's one helluva a big handgun).

Now I have a question:
I was sorting the 9mm and came across some that were marked 9x19. The cases were definitely shorter than the 9mm. I first thought it was just strange but then I found another 23 of them and they were all the same height and shorter than the 9mm. They were marked Marklov or something like that. :confused:

Kind of Blued
September 1, 2008, 12:51 AM
ar10,
9x19 is the proper size for what is popular enough to be called "9mm".

There are also 9x18 (for the Makarov) and 9x17 (.380 Auto).

If the 9x19 brass that you found is visibly and obviously short, I'd just toss it.

TeamPrecisionIT
September 1, 2008, 12:51 AM
If they were Markarov then they were 9x18, not 9x19

[thread veer]

Anyone know how they lock the rotating band to the shell itself? Seems like it's got to be a pretty solid joint to get that shell rotating. Is it keyed to the shell itself? Or just crimped down real tight? Seems like superglue or Elmer's wouldn't do the trick. :)

I'm going to go with 357wheelgun on the winmag, the other i have no clue.

This may not have been the origional intent of the thread, but i think many enjoy the guessing the caliber.

Here's my collection. Small, but I shot all these with the exception of two towards the right. Most of these are the first round of each caliber that i shot. Numbers added for clarity since i had more than i realised.

The 5th from the right doesn't have a belt so it can't be the win mag, and if it were the win mag it would be significantly longer than the 7.62x54r.

Auburn1992 has them labeled right. I was lazy to label them myself, figured someone would help me out.

When i was a lot younger i could have given you guys a run for your money. i used to collect bullets i had almost 1 or 2 from almost every gun available. This was about 20 years ago. i was an autoparts manager and i use to keep them lined up on my desk. a lot of my employees and even some leo used to bring them to me when they found out i collected them. i even had some talons some hard to get and maybe ilegal stuff too. I remember one time we had this guy we were going to bust for passing out fake checks. Well i called the local police and they sent out two detectives. We went into my office. talked about the case then they asked about the ammo. Told them i collected it. They immediately asked if i had the guns for the ammo. I told them no i just collect them. Well they started to look at them and then they got really interested in them. they said that some were defenately not legal. however since i collected them they did not have a problem with them. I even asked them for a round of theirs. Well a few days later one of them came buy and handed me two bullets. Years went by. Half of them i gave way or took apart and disgarded them. As i just lost the interest.

Funny thing about me guessing the 7.5x55mm correct. I went to the range yesterday and saw some brass on the ground that I'd never seen befoe. I decided to pick up a few of the brass pieces for the hell of it.

Well can you guess what it is? Yep 7.5x55mm. I was puzzled but then looked at the brass and put one and one together.

Some very nice pics in this thread! Keep them coming, folks!

OP wanted pics of cartridges next to each other, with descriptions, so...


Here's some of it:

http://members.aol.com/fiftyguy/small_stuff_1.jpg

Top shelf: U.S., .50 cal and up

2nd shelf: Foreign, .50 cal and up, and shotgun shells

3rd shelf: 20mm's

4th shelf: up to 30mm

Bottom: up to 57mm


and some other stuff:

http://members.aol.com/fiftyguy/other_stuff_1.jpg

Top shelf: 40mm and other launched grenades

2nd Shelf: under .50 Cal

3rd shelf: submunitions

4th shelf: hand grenades and short arty casings

Bottom shelf: arty shells and casings

Right side: some rocket launchers and rockets


The rest of the stuff (coupla dozen mortar shells, more rockets and launchers, mines, fuzes, small caliber ammo, barrel sections, bigger arty up to 203mm) is "decorating" the house. Or so I've been trying to convince the wife. :uhoh:


230RN: the groove in a projo under the rotating band is usually heavily knurled. The rotating band is swaged on, often with hydraulic pressure in a crimp die, then trimmed to the proper dimensions. They usually stay put pretty well. :) If you want I can post pics of various projos with the rotating band grooves exposed.

The far left isn't a "20mm" at all; it's a 30x113B, the ubiquitous round for the M230 "chain gun" on Apache Helicopters and revolver cannon on many European fighters. Nice and shiney case!

The "50mm" is the 12.7x76mm .50 "Spotter" for the M8/C semi-auto spotting rifles on US 106mm Recoilless Rifles.

The one to the right of the 7.62 NATO ... maybe another 7.62 NATO?

The one to the right of the .223 might be a 7.62x39 soft point?

The one to the right of the .44 Rem Mag might be a .30 Carbine?

The one to the right of the .45 ACP is a .455 Webley Revolver?

I agree with Rugerlvr that the far right is probably a 9x18 Makarov.

Hope that helps... I'm not so good with the "small" stuff.

Rob62: My ammo collection is all over the place (anti-tank gun magazines on top of the kitchen cabinets opposite my wife's lunchbox collection, for example) so visitors pretty much get a "continuous" heart attack if they're surprised. Munitions are only one hazard: You kinda have to "tiptoe through the various lethal objects" to get anywhere in my house.

Everything is catalogued in a spreadsheet, and we have contigencies for its dispersal in the event of my untimely demise. Many of the items are live, but none are DD's or illegal.

Also many thanks to RugerLvr and ZeSpectre for your advice.

Very much appreciated!

50 Shooter:

You have a very nice collection of .50 BMG's there! Only one I'm curious about is the one with the black projo. Is that a moly-coated brass solid?

But I think your eyes need checking:


1K,

That's a .30-06 AP and a belted magnum (7mm Rem Mag? .264 Win Mag? I dunno...). Look at the size of the shotgun shells to the immediate right, or the sling to the left. But it *is* interesting the way you mistook a .30-06 for a .50 BMG, given that the final .50 design was a scaled-up .30-06.

This oughta put things in perspective:

Just to keep it interesting, L-R:

5.6mm XM216 SPIW flechette round, .44 Rem Mag shotshell

.276 Pedersen from 1929, 12 ga marine flare

.30-06 AP (LC '62), 12 ga door breaching round

.5 Vickers-Armstrong semi-AP, 4 gauge #4 shot

.50 BMG AP (FA 1935), .55 Boyes AP Mark II, .55 Boyes AP Mark I (clip of 5), Punt Gun (~36mm bore, 12oz of shot launched with 2-1/2 oz of black powder)

And at the bigger extreme:

Keeping with the theme of "pointy things next to shotshells":

on the left, US 3"/70 cal Naval AA w/experimental projo

on the right, US 90mm tank and anti-tank guns, w/canister projo. The M336 Canister round launches 1,281 steel slugs like a giant shotgun (2,970 fps muzzle vel, 9 degree angle of dispersion). At 100 yards, that's a pattern almost 50 feet across with about one slug in every square foot! I put some of the steel slugs on top, along with a 12ga buckshot round for size comparison.

Everybody seems to like .50's. Wanna see some more?

I'd never heard that before, but this thread had me confused. I was almost ready to post something about the dimensional similarity of the '06 and .50BMG. It makes sense now.

Correct, 50GUY. :cool:

If you get the 3rd and 4th from the left I'll be really impressed. :D

I dunno. All "little" cartridges look the same to me! :p

But I'll guess: 3rd from left is a 32-40 Ballard/Winchester? 4th from left is a 6.5x52R/
25-35 Win? Those are both pretty obscure, so either I'm wrong or you've got some weird stuff in your collection!

And here's some more .50's, especially for 50 Shooter:

http://members.aol.com/fiftyguy/more_fifties_1.jpg

From L-R, in back:

coupla Trounds

ARES TARG (Telescoped Ammunition Revolver Gun)

experimental US plastic-cased body AP (LC 90)

Winchester AT/MG experimental, October 1918 model (before development moved to Frankford Arsenal and was then derived from .30-06)

20mm/.50 Hi Vel (necked-down 20mm Hispano)

.50 Uniroyal (20mm Vulcan necked-down to simulate 14.5mm Russian in armor tests)

.50 BMG bore erosion test (wire-wrapped steel bullet, FA 47)

Mk211 sectioned projo (WCC 87, live round and projo, last time I do *that*!)

fragment test (steel cube in sabot, Kynoch case, from the Royal College of Military Sciences)

AAI flechette (DU, thus the Geiger Counter. Penetrates two inches of steel or two feet of concrete. There's a write-up of this round at: http://cartridgecollectors.org/cmo/cmo06jan.htm )

In front:

brass cup that .50 BMG casings begin life as

.50 EOD disruptor, US Navy (electrically fired)
