Do you have a way to measure that ? 38 cases are smaller. All published data for 38 will be to the lower pressure.
So what is ur plan ? Load it till it blows up then back off a bit in the next gun ?
You have NO WAY of loading 35k psi loads in a 38 case unless u have a pressure test barrel, strain gauge or something else I dont know about.
Using a lead bullet with two crimp grooves, and using .357 load data, you will get EXACTLY the pressure of the same bullet in a .357 case crimped into the outer groove. That loaded round WILL fit my model 10s or 64s.

That is how Elmer and associates created the .357.
