Actually, as brass (actually copper) cased cartridges were new, there would be one rim size and the factory would work from there. I think there was a .28/30. I know there was a .32/40 and .38/55 --same rim and approx. case length. It was necked down and blown out to hold smokeless powder (30 grains) to make the .30/30 WCF. And the .32 Special... Ballard use the rim. The .45/70 rim went out to the .45 Sharps 3 1/4 straight at its longest. Same as the .45/120 WCF. Early, lightly loaded, .45/60 WCF for lever actions (shorter). .45/90. BIG POINT! These cases are for black powder pressures and do not have the brass in them of more modern design. Section one and see what I mean. If you want "hot" then the .450 Marlin is a good idea or .444 Marlin. [One 'smith has the .308 family on the .444 case for single shots, called "Triads". If you are willing to stay with the old design brass, the .38/56 WCF Improved --Ackley or other-- (on the .45/70 rim) will come close, but not quite, the .375 H&H. Of course the .375 H&H was never loaded hot for use in "hot" places like Africa or India... "Wildcat" is not quite and applicable term. At the same time, rivalry between companies: .25/35 WCF was the same as .25/36 Marlin (or so says Mr. Ackley).. for only "sales" reasons... different names... luck.
