    Well could anyone help me identify these, please.

    The one on the right is a 7.62x39 and I do not know about the one on the left has "L C 9 7" on the back of it.

    The one on the left is .45 ACP and the right is the unknown casing and it has "10 54".

    I'm gonna say its a a 30-06 based on the size of it beside the 7.63x39.
    Lake City 97 manufacture.

    The other with the case 10-54 may be a 7.62x 25 made it 1954.
    It definatley aint a .357 Sig as there was no such animal then.

    Do you have any meaurements for the rifle cases? The one looks to me like a .30-06 sized down to 7.7 Jap.. See the line in the neck? The 7.7 I make has the same line..
    Heres a pic.. left to right: 7.62x39, .30-06 sized to 7.7 Jap, LC 43 .30-06

    I thank everyone for the help. And from your pic compared to my casing it still looks like the 30-06 but thank you for helping.

    LC is the lake City ammo plant. Do not think they were still making 30-06 in 1997. Possibly a 7.62 NATO round. Does it have a circle with a cross on the case head?

    It does not have a circle with a cross anywhere on the entire case.

    The smaller case looks like a .30 Mauser or 7.62 Tokarev. They are very similar looking.
