    I'm sure you all have seen this kind of thing before, but I've been collecting cases from the range. Anyone know what the pink one, the fifth from the left, is? It says 351 92 on the stamp.

    The 7th from the left, is that a nickle plated case? I've been reading on the 458socomforum about guys using nickel plates brass for reloading. What are the advantages/benefits?

    Sorry for the hijack Lon, can't help with any of them :eek:

    I don't know much, but I don't know of any benefit of the nickel brass, other than maybe durability. All I know is that it's alot harder to work with when reloading.

    Unfortunately not me. :(

    Though I would guess the one on the far left is a .22 rimfire. I'd say the third from the left is a .38. I'd say the one on the far right is a big 'un, indeed.

    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 :eek:

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

    See how much you guys have taught me since I joined here? :D 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.
