The 7mm/8mm Mauser cartridges were the basis for an enormous number of other cartridges which used the .470 rim/case head diameter.

In the United States, if a cartridge is based either on the .30-06 or the .308, it can trace its lineage straight back to the Mauser cartridges.

A very few, the .257 Roberts comes immediately to mind, is based directly on the 7mm Mauser case.
