      NOE does have a 117gr.

      does 3gr make a big difference?

      117 gr was the original bullet weight for the 25.35 WCF. Still is. I suspect that NOE mold will drop a little heavier than 117 if you go a little heavier on the lead. Most mold design weights are with Lyman #2.

      What twist is your friends new rifle? You want to make sure that it is fast enough to stabilize that long of a slug. Might wind up with something like the traditional 85 gr bullet for .25-20.

      1 in 9 could work. IIR, original Winchester barrels for .25-35 had a twist of 1:8, and it used the new-fangled jacketed bullets. The .25-50 IIR uses like 1:14. I look forward to the results of this adventure.

      Last weekend in The Outdoorsman in Santa Fe I handled a 6mm Rook rifle, which has a cartridge close to the .25-20. The $1,100 price helped me to not buy it. A very nice looking rifle with double set triggers.
