Thank You for sharing this information!Some times when considering a re barrel and chamber or cartridge change you need to know what round will work without bolt face and extractor work.
I have a cheat sheet/ready reference and thought I would share it with every anyone
that is interested.
All of these groups of cartridges should interchange without bolt face and extractor
work.( some work on receiver rails may be needed to improve feeding ).
As far as wild cats what ever the parent case was it should work in the action listed.
