The 3 is for the month. The 51 is the year. The 92 was the commie inspectors IQ.

Third from the left would be a 30 Carbine, the rimfire looks to be a 22-Magnum from CCI. A pierced primer means the firing pin actually punched a hole in the primer instead of the dent.

The one on the far right is my new pocket pistol cartridge if I can find someone to chamber a Derringer for it.

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

Here's part of my cartridge collection-

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.

I understand now what "hot load" means.

And holy cow, what a collection.

Let's not be too generous here, shouldn't it be more like 72?

Correct. I just grabbed them out of my deprimed brass box. I expect them to be standing up in the display, so it's a non-issue.
