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!

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

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

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

  7. 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.

    • 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.

    • 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!

      • 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…
