      LMAO, the bullet is the part that exits the muzzle. There are 4 parts to a cartridge, bullet, powder, primer and case. The whole thing is called a cartridge or a round.

      Actually, I identify it as an image on my monitor, sitting on my desk in my office which stands in my home, on my block, in my neighborhood, in my town which resides in Texas, which is in the USA on the planet earth in the milky way galaxy.

      Yes, I should have looked a bit closer at the rifle rounds, not 7.62 or 5.56. The one to the right of the 50 is a belted magnum of some kind. Could we get a higher resolution photo?

      They're all new to me, with the exception of the two on the extreme right. These are the only ones that can be considered handgun cartridges.

      A 40mm Grenade? The only 40mm rounds I ever saw was used in the twin forty "Duster" assigned to Recon Company.

      Would appreciate identification of each in time.
