    Help identify ammo.

    I was gifted these boxes. Have no idea what kind they are. Maybe one of you more experienced folk can tell me 2 kinds. One FN in its box, the other was loose ammo. https://imgur.com/a/sDGpXom

    Left 30-06 Fabrique Nationale Belgiumicon made FyA on box was used by Argentinaicon showing ammo was suitable for rifles (Fusilo) and MG (Ametrilldos)
    Right Egyptian probably 7.9 Mauser, can't tell without side pic.

    Here it is the 30 06 is on the right
    Fairly sure its 8mm mauser it chambered and locked on my k98k. Yall think it's safe to fire out of it though?
