Default hot dang 308 to 35 rem, it can be done

I got a hair a few days back (when I looked for 35 rem brass on line, none to be had) and after a bit of reseach and my own idea's I got it..
1 use358 rcbs expander ball it works better than my lee
2 full length resize to 35 rem neck is long at this point
3using a 44 mag lyman sizer with the depriming rod removed and a shell holder that I've ground down to where it just has a lip left and run it all the way tight this removes the bump the 35 dies leave then with a drift pin or a 5/16th bolt drive the case out of the die
4 trim to length and then turn the neck down and then anneal
5 resize again.
time spent 1 hour for 20 pc
for the time being I've got brass so this is basically a can it be done thing but I know now I can do it if he need arises
I did not worry about the base of the brass as both my 35's are on bolt rifles, a tikka t3 and a savage axis

I don't think what you're doing is really feasible. The .308 has a larger case head by at least .013" which would cause problems with the chambering and extraction of the case.
Brass is available if you look.

not that worried for my use as the case head is standard in both the axis and tikka, the lever actions might not work I do have a lyman resizing die that would riexize the case head but I don't need to go that far. As stated it's for can I if it ever gets to where I cant buy it. FyI all 3 links that you gave are out of stock

got up this am and went to do it again, and it just didn't work, but
1 run it threw my rcbs 44 die, using 243 brass, that neck would fit all the way in the die. 708 brass works to,
2 ran up the neck it 3 steps, annealled at 308 and then to 358
3 ran in the 35 rem dies
4 trimmed seems to work better, all rounds chamber
