    Looking for 35 cal. rifle boolits for my 35 Rem.

    I can no longer afford Sierra 35 Rem 200gr. Jwords. I want to shoot my Marlin more than I do now but 46 cents a piece is a bit steep. MBC is where I get 99% of my stuff but 158 gr. is all they have and I want something in the 200gr. range. Coated would also be nice. All I know of is Beartooth but not sure if he is still in the business. I don't want to have to wait 6 months for an order. Ever hear of the : www.castbulletshop.com ? In reading their web page, I think this is what they say: we will send you your order with invoice and then you pay..... Thanks, Jerry

    Midway USA has some 190 grain flat points for 14-18 cents each. Or you could always get a mold and pot and become addicted like the rest of us.

    if you look for the RCBS 35-200 in the offerings I would go with that bullet. (second from the left)

    How about these? http://missouribullet.com/details.ph...5&secondary=10

    MBC will even do custom sizing if you ask.

    Do you need J-words, or are you asking for a cast boolit?
    For cast bullets the RCBS200, and .35XCB are hard to beat.
    Lee has cloned the RCBS200 as has other mold makers.

    I have the LEE clone and it works just fine. Great boolits and not a lot of cost. I'm happy with the Lee. I also have both Sierra and Hornady J-word bullets...they also both work fine...and I'm not paying near the price for bullet you are. I pay about 30-35 cents a piece for mine when I find them on sale.

    Thank you for the responses. Casting my own is something I would/will do but not till this fall. I have enough loaded with Jwords for now. I have discussed with Brad at MBC about his .358 rifle castings and did not come to a decision. The Remington and Hornady offerings are hit and miss and are 36 +/- cents when available. Sierras are 45 cents +. I have found 2 commercial casters doing the RCBS 35-200 and might lean that way if I do not start casting. I am sure I could talk Brad into doing the RCBS 35-200 but I would have to buy 10,000 bullets. Again thanks for your help.

    Onegunred, I am the owner of The Cast Bullet Shop you referred to. I have the Lee flat nose 200 which is pretty close to the RCBS 200. I can say for a fact it is a good design, very accurate and I have several whitetails to its credit. I don't have my load notes handy but I think I was using 5744 at near max. I'll be glad to help any way I can. I hope I'm not violating any forum rules by responding, not my intent. The RCBS bullet is just as good.

    Just a reminder that Microgroove Marlins like their cast bullets sized .360".

    That's my choice as well.
    . . . and I got my recommendation for it on this august forum.

    What is the diameter of the nose of RCBS200, forward of the full-diameter groove portion? Looks like a bore-rider. Anybody actually used it in a Microgroove Marlin?

    This guy casts the RCBS-200 in lots as small as 100. I've bought from him. He's slow as molasses, sometimes 6 weeks to delivery, but he makes nice bullets.

    The rcbs 35-200 works very well in my micro groove marlin. I am not where I can measurements,but it is not what I would consider a bore rider.

    Just today managed to win an auction for an early 1950s Marlin 336-A waffletop in .35, and I will be ordering the Lee mold as I have had such good luck with them over the years. Look forward to working with this boolit over a dose of LVR for a hunting load.

    OK, good. I have no experience with it in mine. Dad had a Lyman 358315 which I got with the rifle when he passed. He said in his notes said he'd lapped nose larger to make it work. The RCBS looks a lot alike, so I though I'd ask.

    n.b. his 336 has the old, shallow Microgroove, for what that's worth. I know newer .30-30s have fewer and deeper grooves. Haven't any idea whether they also did that for the .35 barrels.

    I really like the 358315. They shoot well in my 35 Rem with micro groove rifling. I also shoot a lot of RCBS 35-200’s also.

    I used that RCBS 35-200 in my Freedom Arms .357 to shoot handgun silhouette.
    Could hit 9 out of 10 chickens at 200 meters pretty consistently. A wonderful
    designed bullet.
