Anybody loading for the .35 WSM (AKA .35 Sambar or .35-.300 WSM)?

I know someone else here has built one already, but try working carefully up from .358 Norma loads (not that there's a lot of that data either)

Thanks. I've already been looking at .358 Norma loads. The .35 WSM has about 95% of the case capacity of the Norma, so I plan to reduce Norma start and max loads by 5%. However, I've not yet seen any .358 Norma loads using RL17, which is what I want to try next. Since RL17 and IMR4350 are alleged to have very similar burn rates, I've loaded up a series using RL17 and the 250 Speer Hotcor, starting at 63 grains and going up in 1 grain increments to 68 grains.

Any opinions anyone, before I go to the range next week?

My Bansner built rifle works very well with 75 grains of RL17 and a 225-grain Trophy Bonded bullet. I use a Federal 215M primer and Winchester brass. I get 2,950 fps and excellent accuracy. I have used it on elk, antelope and whitetails all with great performance. Of course, start lower and work up as this is a max load in my rifle.

Thanks for the info Bryce.

And Lawdwaz, I appreciate your asking your friend.

Also, I received QuickLoad projections from Toad via PM. Thanks again Toad!

Anyone else have any suggestions?

If I succeed, here's a pic of my MRC barreled action fitted into a Winchester Featherweight stock (lotta work there):

in the full screen reply there is a toolbar right above the box you type into. it has an "enter an image" box to click on and then paste the url of your pic.

or hover the mouse over your pic in photobucket and there should be "[img/]" tags already attached to your picture that you can just copy and paste that into your reply directly.

but i have a SS M70 Classic WSM that i would love to do the .350 WSM with, but alas i've had an "unexpected intruption in disposable income" so i'll have to do without for now...
