I sent a note to Weatherby requesting a 35 caliber adaptation of their RPM case and a request for barrels of an appropriate contour. Feel free to join my little campaign, futile though it may be.

My next stop will be asking Hornady for a thinly jacketed ELD-X of the 225-230 grain variety (or an SST) a la the .338 bullets they make. ‘It’s the season of hope and new beginnings after all…

Re: 35 RPM
Indeed - I am well familiar with the expression. I also wrote Hornady and told them I'd like to see a 200, 225, 250 grain SST/ELD-X. ;-)

Low expectations are the key - but given how little it costs me to share my opinion, I elected to do so.

In retrospect, I should have asked big H for a 225 grain ELD-VT - wouldn't that be an absolute hoot?

Well a 300, 275, 250, 225, 200, 175 and a 150 gn eld X in .358 cal would be very Deer Santa or Toof Ferry wishy washy....?

It now seems a terrible misfortunate that I am not likely to lose any teeth in the near term...

Does this also work for powder and primers?
