I am loading up some 200 grain round nose and 200 grain FTX Leverevolution bullets, and now am learning about the new FTX 165gn bullets for the 35 caliber rifles. These bullets are not .358", but undersized at .355". Is there any reason that isn't immediately obvious to me why these bullets are such a bastard size? Are these made for the 357 Maximum? Are they made for another cartridge?

I am loading these up for a 1950 Marlin 336 SC with ballard rifling, not micro groove. I don't know if that makes a difference or not, but the standard for the 35 Rem is .358".
