They look like tank/anti-tank armor piercing ammunition.

The one in the middle looks crazy. Looks like it has some sort of pin that pierces on impact.

The one on the right is modern o__o on the link the blueish one (second row, of 3) is plastic and is simunition the one with the blue ball in the tip is a modern pistol round its a teflon or silicon ball to aid in expansion. same with the bottom right. The bottom left one is a silicon core bullet for limited penetration. I have a link to some of them and some similar ones (the one with multiple copper cones is from this company) http://www.lehighdefense.com/index.php/shop/ammunition The one with copper cones is a multiple projectile round. All of thoes featured in the article are for small arms and most are relativly modern. http://www.lehighdefense.com/index.php/shop/ammunition/multiple-projectile

Here is another website with a view of cross sections of ammo, I really like and trust this site. http://www.ar15.com/ammo/project/ammo_cross_sections/index.htm

would really like to have ultra high velocity .223 rounds but nope not with the ban on armor piercing handgun ammo. (see my last link)

The one with a 'needle' is a flechette, meant to deal with brush or armor.
The one with a blue ball is a Glaser Safety slug, designed to shed the ball, the shot filling it, and all its energy once it penetrates flesh or drywall, to very debatable effect.
I'm curious where they found what appears to be a .17-357 RG or .22 TCM.
