These were in a box of shells and gun parts and not sure what they go to. Anyone recognize them? I can take better measurements if you need them. I appreciate the help.

I'll give it a shot, though I'm guessing on some of the cartridges.

A & B Russian or Warsaw Pact country and looks like the 7.62 x 54R.

C & D are 7.62 x 51, C is Israeli, D is American from Lake City Arsenal.

E is Chinese, 7.62 x 39.

F is German, I believe that one is a 7.92 x 33 Kurz (the round that inspired the 7.62 x 39/AK47).

G is another Israeli, 45 ACP.

WRT the 8x33mm Kurz cartridge, the "44" is year of manufacture and the "hla" is the maker's assigned ordinance code, in this case "Metallwarenfabrik Treuenbrietzen GmbH, Sebaldushof plant". All German manufacturers of military goods in WW2 were given a three letter code as were factories in occupied countries.

I'm purely guessing but the "St" may indicate "SturmGewer 44", the first "Assault Rifle" and the rifle that the cartridge was to be used in. The "13" I have no clue as to it's meaning.

And BTW - that 8x33 Kurz round is BY FAR the most valuable of your little "collection"....
