    Picture I took some time ago, as a rather incomplete collection of rounds I've shot in my life.
    Some are snap-caps to represent, as I don't keep ammo for guns I no longer own.

    But now, for what might be a fun test, thought I'd share it here. What's your guess?

    Not sure how I can offer the "answer sheet", without it being a spoiler, so a few days from now I'll post another image here with what they all are.
    Try to resist viewing it and coming back with an assisted perfect score. ;)

    I think this list nails it, L is the most difficult but definitely a Weatherby identified by the double radius shoulder, might be .270 WM both have the same oal.

    pretty sure L is the one that's gonna throw most... it definitely looks like a weatherby magnum but which size of projectile cause there were quite a few that looked near identical... it's definitely a 7mm or smaller though comparing it next to that 308. but the weatherby mag cases are taller and wider than a 308 case and have that steep shoulder and longer neck which gives it away.

    Yep, .277 vs .284, hard to tell a difference from the photo.
