Another Cartridge Family

This photo happens to contain a group also generated from a common parent cartridge. This group of chamberings happens to be a very popular Long Action family.

Can you tell us the parent chambering?

Can you identify the other members of this particular family pictured here along with the original?

Too easy, huh?

Perhaps another slightly tougher one in the near future. It's a bit time consuming going through all the ammo and finding them ya know...LOL. Yes

Looks like something on a 30-06 plantform. 

 

Am I close?

Now, can you figure the chambering I simply forgot to put in the picture? I saw the boxes of ammo in the drawer as I put the others away and was too lazy to re-do the photo! lol

I can think of two that may be missing:  30-03 and 338-06.  Am I close?

yup

The .338/06 A-Square was forgotten by me. I saw the box, but as said b4 I was too LAZY to re-shoot the picture.  Whistling

Hey, this ain't no 1 sentence 1 minute post here...LOL  H*ll it takes me 30 mins to pull the bullets set up the platform and take the pics! But I have truly enjoyed the reaction here, thanks!

My plan is to set up a couple of more pictures tomorrow with some chamberings. I already spent 20 mins looking for the rounds, might as well finish up!!  Yes

just for the record

The following response took me (fumble fingers that I am) 10 mins and got me 12 points. I still think there's a disconnect here when I feel I SHOULD answer a fellow poster's posting! I will continue to rack up those 7, 13 and 23 point postings tho......LOL!! Wish everyone else would tho.... Confused

Hey, It's all good!!  Yes
