Who will be the first to correctly identify this lineup of rifle calibers? Of note is where the “high-powered” AR-15 “assault rifle” round finds itself in this showing of usual and not-so-usual suspects. …This went up yesterday on some of TTAG’s social media, so no cheating…

  1. .357
    .223/5.56
    .300 blk
    7.62×39
    .308 win
    …tapered body and rimmed 30-30?
    7.62x54r
    300 win
    338 lapua
    50bmg

    I tried. I’m only a young buck so cut me some slack.

  2. 357 mag, 5.56mm, 300 AAC, 7.62×39, 308 win, 30-40 krag, 7.62×54, 338 lapua, 375 cheytac, 50 bmg

    • I am with you except for the last 3. I think these are .338 lapua, either a .375 or .408 cheytach and then .50 BMG

      • Those last 3 are bigger rounds than I want to shoot at this stage of my life. And way more expensive than I want to pay for.

  3. .22 WMR, .223/5.56, .300AAC/.300 whisper, 7.62×39, .308/7.62×51, .303?,
    7.62x54R, .338 lapua, .408 cheytac, .50bmg

    • My independent research leads me to believe Tom’s list, above, should be correct.

      Good job, shooter!

      • aaaand, maybe not.

        Several folks below think #9 is a .375 CheyTac, and after a close look at the photo, I think they may be right.

  4. .22mag, .556, .300BO, 7.62×39, .308, .303, 7.62×54, something, something, and something with a 700gr A max bullet.

    • Watched Commando the other day, caught something I never noticed before…Ahnold closes his eyes every time he squeezes off a round.

      • Well yeah. It would be unfair to the bad guys if he used the sights while he was fighting. He’s gonna kill eleventy billion in every encounter even with his eyes closed.

  5. 1: .22mag
    2: 5.56×45/.223
    3: .300 Blackout
    4: 7.62×39
    5: .308
    6: .30-30
    7: 7.62x54R
    8: ?
    9: ?
    10: .50BMG

  6. I’m just leaving a comment so i can see the results. Most of you guys are doing a lot better than I would have.

  7. .22 Mag, 5.56 NATO, 300 Blackout, 7.62×39, .308 Win, 303 brit, 7.62.54R,
    .338 Lupua, 416 and 50BMG?

    • .416 case is belted and has a tiny shoulder.

      #9 in the photo has no belt and a conventional shoulder.

  8. Haven’t shot most of these, but off of the top of my head sans-google:
    .22 Mag
    .223
    .300BLK
    7.62×39
    .308win
    .30-06
    7.62x54R
    300 win mag
    .338 Lapua
    .50BMG

  9. 22 mag
    This may be a trick question and could be 6X45 not 223? (formal guess 6X45)
    .300 blk
    7.62×39
    .308 win
    303 brit
    7.62x54r
    338 lapua
    .375 CT
    50bmg

  10. Should have also put a .30-06 so that lesser knowledged liberal media folks could associate a WW2 US Army cartridge with the present ones.

  11. .22 WMR, .223 Remington / 5.56x45mm, .300 Whisper / .300 Blackout, 7.62x39mm, .308 Winchester / 7.62x51mm, .30-40 Krag, 7.62x54mmR, .30-06, .338 Lapua Magnum, .50 BMG?

  12. .22 mag, .223/5.55, .300 blk, 7.62×39, .308, .303, 7.62×54, .338 lapua, .375 cheytac, .50 bmg

    • If you got #9 right, then I think you got them all.

      Except for the type on #2 (WTH is a 5.55mm?).
      But I think the .223 prefix saves you, there.

      • yeah I derped up on the 5.55mm thing… I actually owned at least one firearm in the first 6 calibers, you know, before the boating accident

    • If #9 is the .375 CheyTac (vs. the .408), then I think you got them all.

      I’ll ignore the 5.55 typo (the .223 prefix saves you, IMO).

    • Bingo!

      Elliott was super close, and Andrew Lias psyched himself out on the .223 and could have had it otherwise haha. These are just rounds that were in my basement so nothing too terribly weird.

      Official list:

      .22 WMR
      .223 Remington
      .300 AAC Blackout
      7.62×39 (too bad I didn’t have a brass case one)
      .308 Winchester
      .303 British
      7.62x54R
      .338 Lapua Magnum
      .375 Cheytac
      .50 BMG

        • Super hard to tell from a photo, for sure. This week I’ll put together a pistol caliber one 😉

        • Had to research it myself, never heard of it. What a crazy caliber.

          hey Jeremy, I have some stuff here I could throw together for another one of these. Probably a very ecclectic mix of misc laying around both pistol and rifle. Probably nothing as cool as that but some dead calibers too.

  13. .22 WMR, .223 Remington / 5.56x45mm, .300 Whisper / .300 Blackout, 7.62x39mm, .308 Winchester / 7.62x51mm, .30-40 Krag, 7.62x54mmR, .30-06, .338 Lapua Magnum, .50 BMG?

  14. All I got was 223/556. Gee I thought that was the most powerful,soul-killing vaporizing boo-lit out there! Looks kinda’ puny don’t it? lol

  15. No but I’ll take a shot at it:

    .22 WMR
    .223/5.56
    .300 Blackout
    7.62×39
    .308/7.62×51
    ???
    ???
    ???
    .338 Lapua
    .50 BMG

  16. The .375 and .22 mag threw me off. At first glance I assumed it was a semi jacketed .357 but after reading the comments it became obvious it was .22 mag. I had no clue about the .375.

  17. I was thinking .327 federal for the first one if not, .22 wmr
    .223/5.56
    .300 blk
    7.62x39mm
    .308 or maybe .300 savage?

    huge as cannon round maybe 20mm?

    • Oh the list is up, heh. Wow I was WAY off. This makes me want a .50 bmg even more. That thang is graTOOitously huge.

      Me likey.

  21. I’ll give it a try:

    .22 WMR / .22 Mag
    .223 Remington / 5.56x45mm,
    .300 Whisper / .300 Blackout,
    7.62x39mm,

    .30-40 Krag,
    7.62x54mmR,
    .338 Lapua Magnum,
    .408 Cheytac
    .50 BMG

  22. Well, according to that one pussy reporter, as well as anti gun folk, they are (from right to left) .scary, .mean, .deadly, .violent, .evil, .horr-ible NOOOO, and .crying and pissing in their pampers.
