Here's some rounds that have showed up lately. I've included a 357MAG round for some size references...

Hint 1: The taller is currently being used and in production
Hint 2: The short stubby little guy is probably older than 1968. It appears to have an iron bullet and case head. It doesn't appear to have a primer.

Have fun!!

Nope. No head stamps on either.

Primer on tall one is staked in.

Short one has no primer but is dippled where it would be.

PS: Thanks to StanMemTN!

One on the right looks like the rimfire cartridge Paul Bunyon used in his BIG HENRY.

Could the tall one be an 88mm tank round?

Nope. 88mm is WAY too big. But you're warm with the 'tank' idea.

{sigh} no help on the short fat one eh? Anyway...

The tall guy was given to me by an A-10 crew chief. It's a case from the A-10's 30mm gun.

The short fat one is a total mistery to me and I guess everyone else. It was found in my late father-in-law's house. he was a USAF lifer and WWII Jug pilot in the CBI.

Got another weird one coming up after I take pics and figure out this posting pictures problem...
