Ammunition Collector Almost By Default

When you're an accumulator of curio and relics, you end up also accumulating different cartridges.

Some quite old.  Rounds in the ammo boxes, chronologically...  Just in case I need to do some time traveling.

.22 Short - 1857
.22 Long - 1871
.45 Colt - 1872
12ga 2-3/4" - 1876?
.32 S&W - 1878
.22 Long Rifle - 1887
.303 British - 1889
7.62x54mmR - 1891
.30-40 - 1892
6.5x55mm - 1894
.30-30 Winchester - 1895
.32 S&W Long - 1896
.38 Special - 1898
9mm Bergmann-Bayard (Largo) - 1901
9x19mm Parabellum - 1901
.25 ACP - 1905
.45 ACP - 1905
.30-06 - 1906
.380 ACP - 1908
.300 Savage - 1920
12ga 3" - 1921
.270 Winchester - 1923
.38 Super - 1929
.357 Magnum - 1934
.30 Carbine - 1941
7.62x39mm - 1944
7.62x51mm - 1954
.243 Winchester - 1955
.22 WMR - 1959
.223 Remington / 5.56x45mm - 1964
5.55x45mm NATO - 1977
.40 S&W - 1990
.357 SIG - 1994
6.8x43mm SPC - 2004

Of course, the chronological order doesn't do much good if you end up someplace where the round has not yet spread.  Probably damn few 6.5x55mm rounds in the USA in 1895, for example.
