    Default Name that cartridge.

    This may be more appropriate in the shooting forum, but these are all rounds I hunt with. I was hoping to change things up a little here on the forum to try and shift the focus away from the management debates/arguments. I think those threads have run their useful course. Anyways, can anyone name these cartridges, and if you are really good, you could name the bullet as well. Good luck.

    I'm going with Bambistews vote, except the 7 WSM might be a .270 WSM.

    Since no one else is coming in, I will let you know which ones you guys got right. Bambi got the .243, .308, and .223 correct. Yellow knife was right on the .270 wsm. That's leaves two more unidentified, anyone?

    The far left a 338-06 or more likely a 35 Whelen...I think.

    I concur with AKBoatR
    I think about hunting when I wake up in the morning. I think about it all day. And I think about it at night. The only time I don't think about it is when I'm doing it. ~credit to Carl Yastrzemski~

    You guys are pretty good at figuring out the cartridges, I'm really surprised you didn't figure out the first on the left. It's 30-06, failsafe bullet.

    I was pretty sure it was a 30'06 case, but you must have photo-shopped the bullet (smiling)...that's why I was guessing a 338-06 or 35 Whelen.

    I've been told the xp3 is a better bullet. Never tried them, but I do have a couple boxes of them in .308. My old Ruger 300 win mag loved them failsafe bullets like no tomorrow. Took a bunch of moose with them with spectacular results.
