    Thanks! I do need to build a bigger display case for them; when I first started I didn't think it would grow as quickly as it did.

    Nope, you are not completely correct. It is a bunch of CARTRIDGES (which is the full part of case, powder, primer, and bullet). The bullet is only part of the equation.

    Hum...the lower row, third from the right. The one with a Paper Patch Lead Bullet. I'd say it must be a .45 2 7/8th (or miscommonly called the .45-110. Some call it the .45-120).

    I'd guess it has a 520 grain Patch Patch bullet (Paper Patch was the precursor to the modern jacketed bullet).

    Indeed, three rows of Cartridges. Anyway, hum...the lowest row, third from the right. The straight case with a Paper Patch Lead Bullet. I'd say it must be a .45 2 7/8" (or miscommonly labeled the .45-110. Some call it the .45-120). Anyway, I'd say from the photo it is a .45 caliber and the case sans the bullet is 2 7/8".

    I'd guess it has a 520 grain Patch Patch bullet (Paper Patch was the precursor to the modern jacketed bullet).

    This one (3-36) is a 40-90 Sharps Straight, and is indeed paper patched. Headstamp is- W.R.A. Co. 40-90 S.S. Case length is 3 1/4" (82mm) :)

    OFADAN- If you know your paper patched cartridges, maybe you can help me with these (I haven't ID'd them yet)-
    2-1 No headstamp, necked, 43.3mm overall case length, neck begins at 25mm, bullet is 10mm in width
    3-24 No headstamp, necked, 57.8mm overall case length, neck begins at 39mm, bullet is 10mm in width

    That big blue one on the top shelf looks like my roll-on deodorant.

    Yes sir, there's actually 2 of those evil rounds in there. no need for brand names, just the simple terms, like you said- .38 short, etc :) I'm off to a Easter dinner, will see what's up when I get back!

    EDIT- Nailed 1-14 btw..
