They make holders in many different calibers, and I used this holder to cut down 30-06 for reforming 7x57. They are available from .

    I have this saw and it works great for making 223 into 300 blackout. I also shorten and straight wall 30-06 to 44 caliber for a different cartridge. That little saw really struggles cutting the 30-06 case off below the shoulder even though it zips right through the 223 cases.

    I cut down 500 45 Colt to make my wife some C45S brass. After cutting them close with the HF chop saw I finished up with a Forster case trimmer, then tossed them all in the tumbler to take off all the rough edges. Never touched a chamfer tool.
