Reforming Brass

I've been helping a guy form some 7mm brass into 257 Weatherby. He asked how many different calibers can you do that with. I gave him a couple examples that I do like 300RUM into 338 Edge, 7mm/264Mags into 257Wby etc.
How many different calibers of brass can you guys think of that you can run through a different die and change it to something else with no further steps other than maybe fireforming?

7mm/300/375 RUM to 270 AM

Any of the '06 family of cases to 6.5-06, 7mm-06, or whatever and any of the Ackley Improved version.

And last but not least teh 50 BMG to 22-50 BMG

to start off with you can add the .270 and 7mm Weatherby mags to that mix comming off the .257 case design. You can also take in the 57mm Mauser case, and just about include everything from the 6mm Remington to the 7.92 Mauser. Then you have the generic 30-06 case that takes in every size from 25 cailber to 35 caliber. And 300 H&H basic will form just about every banded case out there till you get into the .378 Weatherby case diameter

Re: Reforming Brass

The headstamp on the 708 and 243 may say 308 on it but??
The brass for the 30-06 may say 25-06 or 270.
The 6-284,6.5-284 and 284 all say 6.5-284 on it.
The 20PPC, 22ppc and 6.5PPCimp all carry the 220 Russian headstamp
The 308 Baer can be made from 300,340Weatherby or 300 H&H
