Am I even close? I'm not even sure any of those answers make sense.
You're doing well, the one on the far left IS a rimfire, and the one on the far right is indeed a big one.

Never mind, on closer inspection the primers aren't pierced, they're missing altogether

Some have primers, some don't. And it looks to me that all those that have primers are pierced.

See how much you guys have taught me since I joined here? I take it the third one from the left is not a .38. And I'm pretty sure anyone
can tell the difference between a rimfire and a center fire.

And by "hot loads" the Autralian gentleman is referring to primers falling out of the primer pockets when safe pressures have been exceeded. Several of those cartridge cases ARE missing the primers- they may have been deprimed.

Believe the "Big 'un" is the metric designation for a .50 Browning Machine Gun cartridge.

Here's part of my cartridge collection-

Another part-

These include- besides rimfire and centerfire, other earler priming systems- pinfires, lipfires, cupfires, teatfires. The two on the white postage stamp sized background are 2 mm cartridges- one rimfire, one pinfire.
