      Well, I think we plugged the 30 caliber and 35 caliber holes pretty well with the XCB project.

      Other than that, I doubt you’re going to find many American caliber designations in the lineup. The Europeans started their metric reformation with their artillery, so you’re going to find a lot of millimeter designations in there. However, other than guys like Brenneke, the Europeans didn’t branch out a whole lot. Not nearly as much as Americans and Canadians did.

      Americans get all jittery and excited if somebody comes along and shaves .005 off the diameter of a bullet and declares it pure magic, so you’ve got a plethora of different nuanced calibers up and down the spectrum from .17 Remington to 4 bore.

      There is the 5.6 x 57 RWS

      30 XCB!

      There are both 9 x57 and 9.3 x 57

      Not sure about any of the others.

      I was wondering, I got another project coming up, and was thinking of all the different _ x 57mm cartridges born out of the basic mauser. I’m leaning towards .257Rob or 7×57.

      I wanted to include all of them in my thinking.

      Kens,
      I think this is what you are looking for:

      6mm = 243 Win*, 244 Remington (and 6mm Remington)

      .25 cal = 257 Roberts

      6.5 cal = 6.5×55 Swed and 6.5×57 (rarer)

      7mm = 7×57 Mauser, 7mm’08 Remington* and 280 Remington**

      .270 = 270 Winchester**

      .30 cal = 308 Winchester* and 30’06**

      32 cal = 8mm Mauser

      .338 cal = 338 Federal* and 338’06**

      .358cal = 358 Winchester*, 9×57 Mauser and 35 Whelen**

      9.3mm = 9.3x57mm Mauser 9.3×62 Mauser**

      * 308 Win parent case.
      ** Assuming standard length 98 Action with opened magazine and feeding ramp to accept 30’06 length cartridges.

      No, I am only assuming the Mauser 57mm case.

      No 308, and no 30-06.

      57mm only

      The 7.7 Arisaka is 7.7×58
      I’m not on it for length but there is 7.65 Argentine .
      Those 2 stop up the 30 call leak .
      Isn’t the 220 Swift on the Mauser length case also ?

      no, 220 swift is different

      I forgot about the Arg mauser. I got a 1891, and shooting it , it certainly feels like a hard hitter. on the shoulder it feels like .308 class,

      When looking for the above 5.6 x 57mm, I found brass for that at Huntington’s, and also saw they had brass for RWS 6.5 x 57mm; Norma brass 9.3 x 57
