mystery bullets

My girlfriend's grandpa gave me a couple coffee cans of bullets before he died. There were a couple dozen each of .223 and .30-06, but most of them are some caliber unknown to me. They didn't fit in any of his guns, and he couldn't remember where they came from. Just curious, any help would be great.

Pics to come, stupid internet doesn't like my huge photos

His calipers show around 7mm so it’s about .30 cal. I’m thinking .30-30, or something similar.

I think he's right. Do they look like this?



Nevermind, that doesn't match your picture.

But I think that's what I found in the range brass. So at least my question is answered.

I know someone who might be able to help, his name is Dexter Jettster, the owner of Dex's Diner. He damn near lives there so if you bring a few of the mysterious bullets to his diner, he may be able to give you some info on them.

There is this.

7×57mm Mauser
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/7%C3%9757mm_Mauser

Not sure about that one though.



“Two 7×57 cartridges next to a 7.5×55/GP11 (mid), .308 Win and .223 Rem (far right)”

You may be on to something with the mauser. His son collected them, all he had when I saw the collection were 8mm mausers (turkish and german). He could have had a spanish or two at some point. Thanks.

There you go.

"FMJ FN-70’s headstamped."

I'd say that settles it.

Is the bullet ferrous? Try a magnet, see if it sticks.
