Newbie Here. Got my lee loader on Friday and shot my first loads of 35 rem Monday. Shooting an 35 rem H&R single shot at 75 yards on Rigid 2 piece soft rest. Using H335 powder Hornady 200Grain FTX. My load range is 33to37 grains. I didn’t show my first load of 33 grains. But shot A is 33.5 grains, B34, C34.5, D35. E 35.5 and F is factory load of Hornady with a 2 inch grouping. I stopped at 35.5 grains because I was afraid of getting to close to pressure limit last night, but these groupings are not very good. Maybe revisit B and D & E if nothing is better. Will finish my loads up to 37, maybe higher, I got a load of Super 35 that goes up to 43 grains with H335 powder. Hopefully my gun will start grouping better. Any recommendations or tips? Any recommend bullet weight other than 200 FTX. I seated them at 2.516 inches.

Looks like vertical stringing. Check your forend. Is it a little tight when installing onto the forend stud? If it presses hard against the stud you will get vertical stringing between shots as the barrel heats up.

Looking at Hodgdon data and your bullet choice I'd use a different powder. Also note that the FTX bullet uses lower charges compared to the 200 gr round nose.
