    quite a few:

    22 middlestead
    25 souper
    260 Rem
    7-08 Rem
    338 Federal
    358 Win

    Those are the common ones. I'll bet someone has made a .323" and 375 with this case too.

    And let's not forget you can also use them to make the improved versions of those cartridges, too.

    With improved versions in the mix that would more than double the variety. 35 or 40 degree shoulder angles etc.

    I made a 30BR/308 a while back. Owned a 30 BR reamer and plunged it 1/2" deeper to headspace on 308 go/no go gauges. Had to turn the neck to .0105". It is a 308 improved with steeper shoulder angle with less body taper with a BR style turned neck. All because I didn't want to buy another reamer. It is very accurate. I use the fitted chamber neck approach for no sizing.
