Guys, read the OP’s post, the bullets are sticking in the leade, the problem is not case sizing. The OP doesn’t tell us exactly what bullet he is using, Hornady no longer makes a 180-grain .357” bullet but used to make at least two. One was an XTP and the other was a spire point, both handgun bullets. Since Hornady used to list load data for both in the .35 Remington either should fit in a SAAMI chamber.
If the bullet is sticking in the rifling I suspect that he is not seating them deeply enough, but apparently they won’t feed if seated short. My recommendation is to buy the correct rifle bullets, lots cheaper than reaming the throat. No reason to blame the rifle for a loading issue.
