    Reloading Dies for 35Rem

    Gentlemen,

    I am looking to buy reloading dies for 35Rem. I have an RCBS rock chucker press and have reloaded for many years. I understand that reloading for the 35rem. can be a challenge with the angle of the shoulder. I will be loading both jacketed and cast bullets. What Die brand and set would you suggest?

    I use standard RCBS reloading dies for my jacketed bullets. I bought a Lee Factory Crimp Die to crimp them. You can use the RCBS dies to crimp but I think the Lee die works better.

    Does the RCBS reforming/depriming die flare the case?

    The RCBS sizing die does not flare the case.Lyman make the M die for that. I thought Lee had one too but I couldn't find it on their site.I've been using the Lee collet neck die for my 30/30 and 35 Rem. Some people say you can't use a neck die for a lever. I'am on my second or third loads for the brass no problems yet.FS reloading shows a Lee universal flaring die

    Bill,

    The 35Remington is said by some to have very short brass life because of the small shoulder, but in most cases this would be caused by over sizing of the brass. Always with bottle neck cartridges, size the brass the minimum amount possible that will allow brass fired in your chamber to again chamber in your chamber after sizing. This can be done with a Full Length die and you do not need a Neck Sizing die.

    The RCBS dies will work just fine, but as said, if you are loading cast bullets, you will need a neck expanding/flairing die to take care of that situation. Lyman make a product which will take care of that need.

    Some like the Lee "Factory Crimp Die" but I think it is a sometimes thing and most of the time a quality 2 die set will do the job without the extra expanse and additional step.

    Sending a "PM" your way.
