Watch the Wards Auctions.  They sell a lot of single cartridges.

First, the early cartridges will be WRACO head stamped not WRA.  Isn’t the 40-75 just a 40-82 with the copper tube bullet?  The 50-105 is very rare.  Even board dummies are worth upwards of $900.  The 45-82-405 is another rare one.  I am not sure exactly what some of the others are?  Only 2 Winchester rifles were ever chambered in the 50-140, (50-3-1/4″).  Never seen a cartridge.

PM me and we can clean up your list.
