Pop Quiz: Name the Rifle Calibers

As I put a new review rifle in my safe, chambered as it was in a caliber I’ve never owned, I wondered: Just how many rifle calibers do I have in stock in my house at this moment? The answer was 18. But the question, for you, is can you identify them all from these photos? Click ’em to enlarge ’em. Go!

      “7.62x54r”

      Gah. Didn’t see the rim.

    2. avatar Joe R. says:

      “(If you really wanted to mess with some minds put a 32 win spl here)” I was getting messed up with the ogive colors. 🙂

    3. avatar Jeremy S. says:

      Really close, Andrew, but juuussst a bit outside.

    4. avatar dsrd says:

      third from left is .22mag and I think third from right is .300WM, otherwise I agree with Andrew

      1. avatar Andrew Lias says:

        I believe you are correct.

      2. avatar uncommon_sense says:

        Me three!

      3. avatar Jeremy S. says:

        Indeed, dsrd, with your corrections that makes the correct list!

    5. avatar Kenneth says:

      #3 is the .22WMR. The hornet is a bottleneck round. Real close tho…

  2. avatar Darkstar says:

    I’ll bite My guess from L to R (1st photo): 22 short, 22LR, 22Mag, 30 Carbine, 5.56×45, 300 BLK, 243, 7.62×39, 458 SOCOM, 260 rem, 6.5 Creed, 9.3x74R, 308, 7.62x54R, 30-06, 300 Win Mag, 338 Lapua, 50 BMG

    Surely I have gotten some wrong.

  6. avatar Mr.Savage says:

    my list is identical to Andrew Lias’ list, no point in re-typing I guess.

  7. avatar BLoving says:

    Most of what “most” of you have guessed looks right EXCEPT: What y’all are calling 30-30 looks more like a .44-40win.

  8. avatar TP says:

    The picture is showing 18 cartridges but only about 10 CALIBERS.

    1. avatar Jeremy S. says:

      Hrrrmmm

  9. avatar Velvet Elvis Gun Guy (formerly Timmy!) says:

    “…can you identify them all from these photos?”

    I am secure enough in myself to honestly answer: No, I can not.

  10. avatar GS650G says:

    A better quiz is which ones are banned or restricted either by caliber or by the gun they are used in

    I got this one on Instagram so I won’t spoil the fun here. I’m looking forward to expanding my collection into a few of these calibers, especially since I’ve started reloading.

  13. avatar Connie says:

    No .45-70!? How could you….

    1. avatar Jeremy S. says:

      I had some here the week before these photos were taken, but it’s now in stock at TTAG’s secret above ground bunker plus some with JWT for a couple review rifles he has in the caliber.

    1. avatar Jeremy S. says:

      To be perfectly correct you’d have to swap the 6mm and 6.5mm Creedmoor as the 6mm is on the left in the pic, but I’ll give it to you because it’s freaking hard to tell the difference visually!

      1. avatar Burley says:

        Thanks! Yeah, .020 is damned hard to spot in a picture, especially with the 2 cartridges being of a different color, one much more reflective than the other…

  17. avatar tsbhoa.p.jr says:
