The case marked ".357" is actually the .44 Magnum; the ".45 Winchester Magnum" is actuall the .50AE; the ".454 Casull" is the .480 Ruger Magnum.

All just a guess.
Very nice. Only the .480 Ruger Magnum is slightly wrong, but it's something along the same lines.
edit: looks like BuddyLee got that one pretty much correct. It's .500 S&W Magnum. Also, the cartridge next to the 7,62x53R is indeed .223 Remington.

The two remaining cartridges -the longest ones- are Russian. Both been in use since the World War 2 to this day pretty much unmodified and still being used by a number of countries - Finland for example.

Any new guesses until I reveal the correct answers?

Alright, I'll give out the correct answers since there have not been any activity in this thread for more than 24 hours.

.22LR, 9x19, .45 ACP, .44 Remington Magnum, .50AE, 7.62x39, .500 S&W Magnum, .223 Remington, 7.62x53R, 12.7x108, 23x152B.

The last one, which seemed to make up a lot of confusion has been used in IL-2s and is currently by ZU-23 anti-aircraft guns in quite a few countries. Also, the 2nd longest round, which was confused with .50 BMG is 9 millimeters longer than it, and has been used in the Russian heavy machineguns since the DShK and to the most current one, Kord.

FN FAL apparently, but can't tell any more specific info about it.

I'm gonna guess it's an Indian version.

YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO POST A NEW PIC UNLESS YOU GUESSED THE CURRENT ONE AND UNTIL IT HAS BEEN CONFIRMED BY THE POSTER THAT IT'S RIGHT. Argh.

Might as well change it too 'If you post a picture, make sure you check up on your post more than once a day because people might like this thread and show off their knowledge of firearms'.
