.30 Gov't is short for .30 Gov't 06, It is the .30/06. You're right about the .30 Army, it is the .30/40 Krag. Other cartridges with 2 names are .244 Remington(6mm Remington) and .280 Remington(7mm Express).
Winchester called it the 30 Gov't 06. Before that it was Ball Cartridge, Caliber .30, Model of 1906. :ROFLMAO: I'm just messin wit ya, not trying to jerk your chain. .275 Rigby and 7mm Mauser(7X57)are the same.

Some of the foreign manufactures mark boxes as .45 Long Colt but the head stamps are still .45 Colt. I have never seen a .45 Long Colt or .45 LC head stamp. Some of the Italians mark their guns as .45 Long Colt and that doesn't help matters.
