Your charges sound about right, although I'd use about 3.5 in the .35 Remington. 4.0 of Red Dot worked on a .303 British, and the bore volume is similar, considering the difference in barrel length.

I'd shoot 20, then clean the barrel and slug it. There's no point in removing more metal than necessary. I think I overdid my .30-06, as it's problem was excessive copper fouling, but it didn't have any tight spots. Copper fouling for the first 5 shots after lapping was dreadful, so I gave it another 20. I broke it in properly after those, and it stopped fouling excessively after 40 jacketed rounds.
