General footnote:  There is NO industry standard/control over non-CIP/SAAMI drawings, e.g., drawings with the SAME cartridge name may have DIFFERENT dimensions. Additionally, even for the same "cartridge case" dimensions, the throat dimensions may vary between chamber reamer drawings. Project-specific chamber/chamber reamer drawings are your best source of dimensions. Proceed with caution!

(5) Drawings contributed by PAC-NOR. NOTE that they are virtually the same name, and from the same reamer company, but the dims are different enough to present VERY SERIOUS problems if assumed interchangeable - at least for the 375/50 where they are NOT! Proceed with caution!!!
