If anyone is interested I have compiled cartridge data from various internet sources into an excel file a couple of years ago. It covers from .14 to 1 calibre plus metric.  It is not intended as a reloading resource but provides some interesting info including:
 
 
Caliber Case Type Bullet Diameter Case Length Rim Diameter Neck Diameter Shoulder Diameter Base Diameter Total Length Primer Year Introduced
 
May be a little out of date now since newer wildcats have been introduced but easy to update since it is excel.  Again I just compiled the data I don't even remember the sources now.
 
Not sure if the file can be made assessible for download through the forum, perhaps someone can advise.  I will send it via email if you PM me your address.  File size is about 740K

   Hey Dogger,after PMing you the other day I found I needed Excel in order to download the data you sent. I'm posting this here so others will know.  Anyways,I borrowed the program last evening from my son and my wife installed it this morning.  It downloaded fine and was saved.  After quickly checking it out I don't see how a real rifle looney could do without it! It'll be awhile before I can really delve into it as I've got a busy week coming up but right off I can't even imagine how it could be improved on. GREAT job and THANKS again. You guys NEED to check it out!!
 
til later

Thanks pyro & 300 but I can't claim credit.  Someone a lot smarter than me did most of the work.  I just compiled the info from a few sources and formatted it into excel to make it easier to find stuff and add new items.  Wish I could give credit to the original authors but I don't even remember know where it came from.

Pretty interesting stuff in there.  Like the historical references for cartridge development.
