I only need 1 person to test my 35-200 boolits, PM me if interested and I will pick someone to send them to.
35 Rem's with Ballard rifling get more consideration as its what I have....

Thanks

No PM's yet, no opinion on barrel length.
Just need someone willing to put in a little work testing

Yes these are from the new NOE molds

You have a preference on type of powder? I'll help you if I can. Ya just gotta tell me what and how you want them loaded. All my 35's are micro groove tho. In my Lyman Cast Handbook , I don't have any of the powders listed. Got IMR 4064, IMR 3031, some H335 and maybe a few others in small quantities.

Doc I've got a 1950 model, I believe it's the same as yours. I have yet to develop a load using my rcbs 35-200 gc mold. What powder are you wanting to try? Until now I've just been tinkering with the rifle glass bedding the stock, relieving pressure points on the forearm etc. it should be ready. Scope on it too.

Thanks for the replys guys, powder doesnt matter to me at all, I will work up my own loads with the powders I have.... I am just wanting for someone else to test to see how they work in their rifle. This test if for the lube I chose and the size of the boolit as well as testing the PBGC's... OLBIKER was the first to reply and he has not only a 35 REM but a 356Win so he will be a great candidate if he chooses to test them.

I got the PB mold just to use a PBGC on just in case I ever run out of GC for the 35, I can make them out of Pop cans....

My powders are IMR-3031, H322, IMR-4064, IMR-4320 and a few more but I will figure out what I want to use later when I get a chance.

EDIT: Here is what someone will be getting

If someone finds a load quickly and they work good with no leading and are accurate then they will have alot of boolits for Deer season......
They are already boxed up waiting for a name and address to be put on the box....

EDIT: the GC version is water dropped, the PB version is air cooled.... WD=around 19 to 21 bhn, AC=11 to 13 bhn

Just curious. Will the socialists in control not even allow lead at the range?

Ok guys, I will be having another round of testing later.... I will be getting some .006x .550 aluminum from Coil & Foil to use for the gas checks so I will need them tested (anealed vs. non anealed) I was also thinking of trying some .005 copper just to see how that would work out.....


Thanks,

Doc

Wow Doc. Certainly a generous offer. I'm sure someone will be glad to test your boolits. I would offer, but my 35 is a micro groove, and new to me. I haven't even fired it yet! This indicates that I don't get enough shooting time.

You can shoot lead at the range... well, for now.

You just can't hunt with them.

Nice looking bootlits Doc.
