Is there anything going on with this wildcat? Have heard very little. Thought I would give it it's own thread.

Welcome to Shooters Forum. I've enjoyed your comments at INGO. I think you'll find this is just a little better, as forums go.

I've heard a lot of folks mention the idea of building 35X460S&W, but I'm not aware of anyone who has actually done so, at this point. You might check with David White at D&T gunsmithing.

I mentioned this to Sonex184 today. Should pretty easy to form the case and right now the WSSM cases are like gold now. I am hoping that someone is close to making this a reality.

Actually, it does not step down as easily as I thought it would. The round I favor, but is even more obscure, is the 338MX necked up .020" and then trimmed just a wee bit. Much easier to form but the brass is a real oddball.

Others are doing the 356/358 trimmed to 1.800", without moving the shoulder back. Leaves a tiny little .150" neck, but they are making it work. Lots of different ways to go, I guess.

This is a really fuzzy picture, but it's a 44 magnum, 358GNR, 358MX and 30-'06 case, to provide a little perspective. The 358MX is very close to being a rimmed version of the 35 IHMSA, in terms of capacity, neck length and operating pressure.

I mentioned this particular wildcat a few post ago. I though that a .460 S&W necked down to a .35 Cal. would make an ideal cartridge for those who like to use Lever Actions & Singleshot rifles. This cartridge would also be "Hoosier Friendly" as it wouldn't exceed the 1.8" length rule.

That is why I put it into a thread. There was small talk, so I thought if it was thrown out on its own that people would come forward with more information. Hope you didn't mind.

Not at all. The more ideas, brought forward for discussion, the better.
