So Question – I am thinking of getting a .35 cal barrel and having chambered to either 358 or 358xcb or 35 Whelen – the bullets I’m planning on using are from Lee’s 358-105 SWC to NOE 360009 280 grainer. I’m looking at new barrels because I’m not seeing a lot of used barrels in .35 cal. –
I have twist rates from 1:10 to 1:20 with most offering 1:14 – according to formula the longest bullet will be Marginally stable at 1080 fps even in the 1:20 twist barrel. As I want to try to use this with a suppressor I want subsonic and super sonic performance with say max speeds of
2000 fps with 360009 – 280 grain RN
2500 fps with 35XBC bullet
2600 fps with RCBS 200 FN
2800 fps with 180 grain Silhouette RCBS SP
Don’t think I need Very much faster with any lighter bullets – but want to use
all the pistol molds with same cartridge for plinking cheaper.
So I’m wondering what Larry and Tim think would be best bet for me to purchase.
