I have a stack of reloading manuals covering decades, many of them have case drawings and dimensions. While not as detailed as SAAMI drawings, all the major information is there and I find them to be a useful quick reference.

As do the current manuals. Even if you don't reload, they're a handy reference. And the old books can be found cheap (if we ever have gunshows again...)

Another good reference is Frank Barnes's CARTRIDGES OF THE WORLD. It does contain some errors and the author's comments on cartridges are his opinion, and more than a bit "dated" today, its still a fair reference.
All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.
