Well the 2nd and 3rd pics appear to be what we called "bell rammers". A pole was attatched to these to assist in ramming projectiles into the tube. It also had other uses such as trying to dislodge debris and cleaning purposes. The other two pics. of the projectiles could and hope to be dummy rounds. Those made good door stops when painted.
