The short one is going to drive me crazy. After that, I think it's .250 Savage, .243, .270, 30-06, and a 300 Weatherby Mag?

Heres one that shows the .250 Savage next to the .243. Pretty similar case to that 22-250.

And upon further review, the 22-250s parent case is actually the 250 Savage. I knew it looked similar!  :lol:

And the parent case for the 243 is a 308!


Thanks for tagging along.
