Question Loading the 205 RCBS cast in the 35 Rem.

I am loading the 205 cast bullet in my ballards rifled 35 Rem RC.
The rifle is short throated and the rifling is in contact with the top band of the bullet.
I am using 38 gr. of Varget and federal gold primers which gives good performance.
I intend to load the bullet deeper into the case and crimping on the top band.
Has anyone worked with this and how much did you reduce your powder charge?
Thanking you in advance.
