    In the first pic they look like 30/06. the ones with the groves are guard ammo,low power. Pic #2 also look like 30/06. the one with the metal band on it is from a belt for an michinegun. Pic#3 loohs like a 45acp,30m1 carbine,30/06 blank and two 50cal bullets. Can't see the head stamps so can't be certin.
