#1 is 357 mag.......so the wife said she confirmed at an event.

So now I am guessing #5 is .38 Special.

#2 might be .44 and #4 might be Colt 45?

6- .22
7- .243 WSSM
8- 7.62x39?
9- 9mm
13- .40 S&W
14- .45ACP

Those are a few guesses of mine.

I wonder if #10 is .240? Looks similar to the .240 machine gun used in the military.

The M240B used by the military is a .308/7.62x51 NATO

3 is probably .223. If 1 is 357, 5 should be 38spl.

11 is probably 7.62x54

So how similar are 44 mag and colt 45?

I was thinking #2 and #4 might be slightly dissimilar?

4 appears to be .44spl. I think the rim is too big to be .45Colt.
