Correct, for example Moleman loads the 158 gn .357 bullets for plinking/range ammo.

He was working on a 150gr version last fall, not sure where he's at with testing on it.




Those DO look very nice :-). I ordered 50 of the 180 spire points. Need to talk to some locals and see if I can find a dead loss Hog to test them on :-). They are really not terribly more expensive than I remember paying for the 180 SSP's at retail.

I just did a quick sketch on the 150 and 160 Cutting Edge Bullets Raptor as far as seating depth goes.

I will probably end up with a collection of these sketches as time goes on, might go back and edit the case drawing a little so it looks prettier :-). This gives us oal of round though, oal of bullet, and seating depth into case anyway.

CEB also lists "projection" on this bullet as .600, and in the drawing case mouth to bullet tip is .625 so this may actually seat up pretty decent.

Here is the Lee 358-200RF, said to be a clone of an RCBS mold. I have a mold coming so will edit details and maximum seating depth related to freebore later, right now it is just at maximum OAL.



Gleaned a little info from a cast boolits post, here is a maybe more realistic look at seating depth to crimp groove

So, a 200 gr. jacketed soft point for a 35 Whelan (.358) should be usable. Correct ?

Yes, we are using .358 bore barrels, so .358 bullets and .357 pistol bullets can be used.

Here's what I did yesterday, don't know how to add it to the spreadsheet with my phone. The temperature was around 37 degrees.
All loads with #41 primers and basic brass.
180 speer hcfn grs. Lil gun
22.5 grs. No chronograph data
23.0 grs. 2212 avg velocity 1.6" at 100 yards.
23.5 grs. 2187 fps 2.7"
24.0 grs 2215 fps. 2"

H110
23.3 grs no chronograph data 1.1" with a flyer that opened it to 2.2"
23.6 grs 2096 fps. 1.67"

200 grain ftx h110
21.0 grs 1917 fps 1.5"
21.4 grs 1904 fps 2.75"
21.8 grs 1956 fps 1.08" with a flyer to 2.2"
22.2 grs 1968 fps. 1.3"


I'm pretty sure the accuracy problem is me, I was a bit uncomfortable in the colder temps.
