I've got a Guns Digest and an edition of Cartridges of the World from somewhere in that timeframe, so I can have a look - if I can find them (I moved house a few months ago and a lot of my books are still 'who knows where?').

For most of the calibres were discussing the bullets haven't changed shape much, and aside from a fashion for very heavy bullets for a while bullet weights haven't changed much either (though for a long time the .270s lacked decent heavy bullets even though the only slightly larger 7mms had plenty).
