I'm making a new semi-auto rifle in 35 Remington, and the primary load I intend to use is a 180gr hollow point bullet designed for 357 Rem Mag. I notice, though, that lining up either of the crimping lines with the cartridge mouth makes the round much shorter than the factory Remington loads I have with 150gr and 200gr bullets. That's actually a good thing, since it may now be possible to use AR-15 magazines. But I'm not sure how seating depth would affect operating pressures for which the rifle is designed, both for safety and for the gas system to operate.

Anyone know how I should load in order to keep the pressures around the factory pressures considering the presumably deeper seating depth? Or am I wrong about these bullets having a deeper seating depth?
