Have you loaded pistol bullets in your .35?
I have a .35 in TX for whenever I get back there and I would like to find a cast load that works well.
I tend to like heavy for caliber slower moving bullets, but I also try to find out what the gun likes...
Never messed with jacketed pistol bullets.
There are only two cast bullets I'm aware of that are really ideal for the .35 Rem. The Beartooth 180gr. "+p" handgun bullet (it's listed under handguns, not rifles) is really ideal for the .35 Rem. Long nose and doesn't eat up much of the powder space.
If you cast your own, you can try the RCBS 205gr. FNGC.
Crimp grooves may not line up perfectly, just get a Lee FCD and crimp wherever you need to. Load is a case full of Varget, for either. The RCBS will run a little over 2,000fps, and I've gotten Marshall's "+p" bullet up to 2,300 fps or so.
Have fun and good luck.
