    You may need to go to a larger diameter. One easy check, will your sized bullet go easily into a fired case? If so, you need more diameter. There should be some resistance when the bullet enters the case.

    A .35 at 200 yards, and 2100 fps works as well or better than a jacketed bullet. At least none I've shot have complained, and are down in 30 yards or less.
