One of the more common 8x57 rounds in the 1960's was Canadian, boxer primed and non-corrosive, made for the British for use in the BESA.

It is also a recorded fact that the British punched or crimped the rims of 9mm so they could use it in their Enfield and Webley .380 revolvers. (Yes, I tried it, and it works, but I don't recommend it because even standard 9mm P. runs a lot higher pressure than those revolvers were designed for, even the S&W K200.)
