I think you got it right the first time except for the 3rd round.I think it a 7mm-08
Sorry... Yesterday was the last and final day for any and all complaints whatsoever.

I try to avoid temptation unless I can't resist it.

Everyone has a photographic memory.Some just don't have film.

I put all mine in a row and tried to take a pic that I could then go back and try to identify. It's hard to do. Some are pretty obvious but others are tricky just because the camera doesn't always tell the truth. I'm thinking that some may be missing the WSM and the Grendel but like I found out, it's hard to say for sure.

Good guesses by all. I was looking at em wondering if I could name em if I didn't know what they were already. Pretty sure I couldn't just from a picture.
Jay W with your correction you came the closest. Second from the right is 7mm Rem Mag (looks identical to 264) and your 308 is 7mm-08 (also looks almost identical).
Good job folks!

300 Weatherby Magnum
7MM Remington Magnum
7MM/08 Remington
270 Weatherby Magnum
270 Winchester
6.5 Creedmoor
257 Weatherby Magnum

I guess I am a little late but did not look at the answers from others.  The 7MM Rem. Mag looks like it has a Nosler Bal-Tip bullet.  Yes?
