I took these over at the DTA booth at SHOT this year, but always wondered what calibers these were.

Anyone know?

Ok I will give it a shot... but it is hard to tell on the middle ones due to bad lighting.

going from left to right:
#1 7.62X51 Nato / .308 Winchester
#2 .300 Winchester Magnum
#3 .338 Lapua Magnum
#4 .408 Cheytac
#5 .50 BMG

.308
7mm mag
.300 win mag
.338 Lapua
.50BMG


Note: #2 is a banded magnum and #4 can not be a .416 Barrett since, it is obviously not based on a 50BMG cartridge. BTW, the only one I'm positive of is #5 is a 50BMG.

#1 308
#2 300 win mag
#3 ?
#4 338 Lapua
#5 50 BMG

#3 doesn't have a belt. Looks like same size as #2 without belt.
