    Loverin style bullets work great.
    The solid soft lead bullet is undoubtably the best and most satisfactory expanding bullet that has ever been designed. It invariably mushrooms perfectly, and never breaks up. With the metal base that is essential for velocities of 2000 f.s. and upwards to protect the naked base, these metal-based soft lead bullets are splendid.

    Forget everything you know about loading jacketed bullets. This is a whole new ball game!

    my .2 --not an expert but have had and loaded for 3 .358...
    a 22'' Savage lever
    a tang model 16.5'' Ruger
    a 22'' rebarelled Weatherby vanguard
    as far as I am concerned with jsp 225gr is the peak of all weights--
    my Weatherbye will give 2507 fps either the 225 gr Nosler --225 gr Sierra-- 220 gr Speer
    the 200 gr are a little faster-- but not enough to matter 2620-- but they slow down fast but the gummie bear bullets are cool
    the 250's peaked in 2300's
    for cast --I am shooting the Lee .358 200gr -- at .35 Remington speeds--
    to if I were invest in a custom mold it would be in the the 225-say 260 gr range with a descent meplat around 2300 +
    Accurate molds has one listed that the owner made for his Browning .358 -- it is 240 gr as I remember & would likely be my pick

    This is a 5 shot group from a 23" A&B 1-14" on a Santa Barbara 98 , long pull single stage trigger @ 4# , with a Weaver K4 post and cross hair . 100 yd @ 3,940 ft 70 .
    IMR 4350 , CCI 200 , FC brass , RCBS 35-250 WW , Darrs lube , aluminum check (Sages I think) , @2100 fps . The 5th shot went wild due to a lost check .

    I don't know what kind of groups you guys need but this particular rifle will deliver this with Unique and the Lee 358-200 and 358-228 35 XCB . Groups were about the same at 50 with the 358-158 RF and the Lyman 148&161 gr WC .
    In the time of darkest defeat,our victory may be nearest. Wm. McKinley.

    About that rally point, the soap and mail boxes fall on blind eyes and deaf ears,the ballot box is manipulated,it would seem we are fast running out options....

    I found it about 15' in front of the bench ........ Virgin shooting area , I was the only one with a 35 ..... I changed my process for the FP cast and preseated them on the XCB with an aircraft rivet squeezing tool .

    I suspect that the gas check came completely off in the case .
    Even with the out of group bullet Bambi , Ben or Bullwinkle would be in a lot of trouble .
