I just got back from the range, trying some Federal factory 200gr loads, and a few different handloads. I fired one box of the Federals and almost half of them split at the neck or shoulder. I had some handloads up to book max in Hornady, R-P, and converted 6.5x52 brass that were fine. I will try annealing the Federal cases that didn't split, but boy is that frustrating. I mainly bought the ammo for the brass since it is scarce lately. Anybody else had issues with Federal brass in the .35? I have loaded plenty of it in 30-30 and 30-06 without problems. On a happier note, I did score 2 100ct boxes of 200gr Core-Lokt bullets at a gun show last weekend for $6/box:biggrin:.
