That is pretty much the 117 gr load I'm using, got it from the same source you refer to. I will check out the Rifle Magazine article--I think I may have seen it, not sure.
How has the 75 gr Speer load worked out? I've wondered about such, though it seems like an overly small bullet for the cartridge. I know that bullet is basically meant for the .25-20. I'd like to try something around 100 gr, but can't find any bullets. Know of any?
I'd kind of also like to try some cast bullets in the 100 to 115 gr weight range, but can't find a mold--again, any ideas?

I don't have any clue about the specific load, but my uncle shoots his .25-35 with an 87 grain spitzer. With the pointed bullets, he loads one in the chamber and only one in the tube. His 94 is a 26" rifle, and has one of those old Redfield 2X long eye relief scopes on the barrel. Ridiculously accurate.
