    Hi Ant

    Some measure of cartridge will help a lot...
    My opinion is that on the left is an normal 30-06 and on the right is an german 7,9#57

    Although the headstamp is unreadable in the picture, the .30 calibre case on the left (strictly speaking not a .30-06) was almost certainly made by Remington, owing to the annular groove around the primer.

    Could the one on the right be 7.7 Carcano?

    Do you mean 7.35mm Carcano? It has the wrong shaped bullet for that.

    It looks like a 7.92x57mm as already stated.

    As ever, we need dimensions of case length etc. to make a positive ID.

    Oops! Yes, 7.35 Carcano. My mistake... I always confuse 7.35 Carcano with 7.7 Japanese.

    Well it is a millimetre out, but that pretty much confirms that the right hand round is a 7.92x57mm Mauser.
