I came across these shells the other day. They all appear to be demilled.

Top left is a .50 cal. The next two appear to be 30mm and 20mm practice rounds. I have no idea what the next two 20mm rounds are.

ETA: I think the top right is for a 105mm howitzer shell.

The belted rounds are .30 cal.

The long 20mm looks like one is Oerlikon, the other is Hispano.

Far right 20 mm is 20x110mm Oerlikon, next is 20x110mm Hispano-suiza, both are purpose-made dummy rounds, likely WW 2, next is 20x102mm target practice for the M-61 Vulcan Gatling gun. It looks like someone put the projectile in a fired case to make a dummy round as there is no crimp in the case neck as would be found on a live round. The 30 mm projectile is also a TP but for the 30mm gun used on the Apache helicopter.

the gold and blue looks like a 30mm training round for an Apache.
