    An example 30.06 brass may be reshaped to form perfectly good cases in cal. 22-250,250-3000, 257 Roberts, 6mm,243 win, 25-06,270 win,,280 Rem,300savage,308 win,7x57 - 7.65 - 8 & 9mm mauser,8x60,358 win, 9.3x62 Mauser, 9.5MS and quite few others i cant recall. Even one can convert a 30.06 brass to rimed case.

    30-06 is probably the most useful for forming others cases but few other can also be quite useful e.g. 375HH, 45-70



    30-06 brass is used to form 9.3 mauser, 270 win ,308 win and 243 win cases




    30-06 brass is used to form 9.3 mauser,(30-06 original brass Sako) 270 win ,308 win and 243 win cases (L to R)

    Well how 30-06 will be squeezed to take on rest of ammunition, their is variation in case length, shoulder, calibre etc. No doubt 30-06 is a usefull ammunition due to its ballistic characteristics but its case utility in canalisation is beyond comprehension. Sir, please elaborate on the technique for knowledge, regards
