I have a clone of this bullet cut by NOE into aluminum
blocks. I've cast maybe a 100 lbs. of these but never
fired one as I have no 35 caliber rifle. It is a good
looking bullet with good feedback from customers.

Nice looking bullet, but I don't have a 35 caliber rifle ether....

I always wanted a 35 on the 30/30 case maybe in a single
shot.

You can't shoot them out of a .357 revolver?

I have the very same mold and used it quite successfully in a .358 Winchester Savage 99. Good bullet and easy to get good accuracy with at deer killing power levels.

I've been playing with a break open H&R in .35 Whelen, not a tack driver and not a particularly interesting rifle, but have been shooting paper plates at 100 yards off my front porch with plinking loads using .38 SWCs. I'll get to that clone of the RCBS bullet eventually.

The .35 bore size is the best you can get if you want to hunt with cast, you should have one.

Never tired. From the crimp groove to the meplat is .500"
if memory serves. The Lyman 358429 which makes a long
round is .375".

The Lyman bullet puts .368" in the case & the RCBS bullet
would put basically the same if seated to the crimp groove
but would have to be seated deeper to function in a
cylinder.

Perhaps a .357 Maximum revolver or a TC Contender if one wanted to use it in a handgun?

It is a great bullet and NOE makes a fine mold. I have several of theirs now and they have all been great.

I have the RCBS version of that bullet and they're way too long for a
.357 mag. I got the mold to use that bullet in a .358 Win. Ruger 77. The
idea has been on the back burner for a few years now. I may have to do
something about that.

I had good luck with that bullet and 40 grains of IMR 4320 in my .358.

How deep do you have to seat it to get it to feed in the .357 lever gun?

Measure the cylinder of the revolver you plan on using. If it doesn't have counter-bored chambers to cover the rims, add another .05". That will give you the maximum COAL for that revolver.

Subtract the .5" length from the COAL and that will give you the length to trim your brass.

Powder charges are based on available powder space and making the space smaller will increase pressures. So be careful in calculating your charge.

Also, it may not stabilize well with that long profile, but it's always fun to find out.

You will probably need to stick to SAAMI specs., because of how most lever actions are made, and that would cause the same problems LAH had. To crimp in the crimp groove you'd need to trim your brass to about 1.09". Again, this will seat the bullet deeper leaving less free space inside the case and you will need to reduce your powder charges.

I was asked: You can't shoot them out of a .357 revolver?

I gave the measurements to show it's not practical.Better
bullets for the 357. This is a rifle bullet pure & simple.

Thank you for the kind words. It wasn't really pointed at
you so much as just throwing it out there. I never had a
problem with the bullet as I've never fired one nor tried
to do so.

And thank you for taking the time to explain how it could
be done & your measurements. No conflict here & if I've
cause any please forgive me.

No problem here, I thought you were wanting a chance to shoot them.

I shoot a 200+ grain 35-cal bullet out of
my 38-spl. and .357-mag. revolvers and out
of my 357-max. single shot break action
carbine and also out of a 357-mag. pump
action carbine rifle.

But it is a different design then this
bullet. It's the Accurate Molds # 36-210C
so it is possible to shoot very heavy
bullets like this from handguns and
carbine rifles designed to fire standard
COAL dimensions 357-mag. rounds. But the
more pointy, longer length nose of the
particular bullet in question may cause
issues that the bullet I am using does
not. In addition I believe my pump action
carbine is more forgiving then many lever
guns in the same chambering since it uses
the same action as a 410-bore 2.5" shell
length shotgun (shotgun company that
decided to make some pump action carbine
rifles based off their existing 410
design) so there is plenty of extra space
in the 357-mag version for the shells to
not be exactly of standard dimensions.

For a 357 lever gun, to use the 200 grain
bullet this thread is about using 38-spl.
brass and loading to 357 pressure levels
would probably be the best plan.
