    .308, 30.06, .45 ACP, .243 etc. all have the same case head size.

    .223 naturally would be different. .380 uses the same as .223

    Hornady provides a list of what each shell holder works for. Click the link. :)

    Welcome to THR.

    Like Walkalong said. You can use the same shell plate on any case that has a common head size. I think you will find more commonality with rifle cases than pistol cases though!
