i will say it again, Winchester screwed the pooch on NOT bringing the public out on the 35/30 in 1894.
They definitely missed that one!
Remington spotted that hole in 1906 when they introduced their auto loaders and came up with the 35 Rem. Wonder whether they tried the 32 Rem opened up to 35 and decided a bigger case was needed. It is always fun to critique old decisions and designs.

Well, yes you can but they will break. Nothing bad will happen unless you scratch the cylinder trying to dig the broken pieces out. So far I have gotten three reloads out of them with 38 grains of FFF and the Keith bullet.
Back when I had a 44 Russian single shot, the only brass available was balloon head REM-UMC. Worked just fine, although I did not load for high velocity.

yep, one of the 2 X57 rounds i haven't played with.
hard to justify when there's 2 220 swift's and a 22-250 sitting there i hardly use.

Ha. Remember many of those writing these descriptions are not nearly as knowledgeable as we are... the case is likely "tapered" to add mass to web. I mean have you ever read a claim it was tapered inside to retain bullets?? CW
The only cases I found that have an "internal taper to retain bullets" are original 7.35x51 Carcano cases made in 1939 by SMI. Lotsa work to convert to reloadable brass.
