That much I am well aware of - I was more wondering about a rimless cartridge in a cylinder where you can't use moon clips that wrap into and around the shoulder of the rim. Are they headspacing on the case mouth, or what? If so, I'd imagine that cylinder has to be pretty carefully machined to keep the case from sliding forward without generating an over-pressure condition.
