    Good post, lots of stuff can obviously be made from '06 brass. Mine are 9.3 X 57, 9 X 57, 8 X 56 Mannlicher/Schoenauer and a couple I'd have to go look up. I haven't checked but I think I could make 6.5 X 54 M/S from '06 brass but with Hornady brass available it isn't worth the effort to me. For cast bullets in my 9.3 X 57 Husky and 8 X 56 M/S I had to thin the necks a bit. For jacketed bullets nothing was required.

    7.92X33 (8Kurz) For the Sturmgewehrs. Factory Boxer brass and loaded ammo is available but some things you do just because you can I guess.

    Lots of 8X57, 7.65X53 Mauser, and a few 9X57.
    I also made a few sample blanks with integral bullet in the 8X33 Kurz.

    In old AR's, somebody made whistles out of 06 brass, another made fishing lures with multiple treble hooks.
    Tried to make a whistle, couldn't make it work. Woulda been great stocking stuffers.
