25-35 Winchester

I own a model 1885 Winchester single shot in 25-35 caliber; the handload data I can find is for older, weaker actioned rifles.
Does anyone have any experience with "warmer" loads for this caliber?

I do, but in a T/C Contender handgun. The following were safe in my 10" Contender, you'd expect to get ~500 fps - or higher - velocities in your long rifle barrel.

60 Horn FN 28.0/IMR3031 2489 fps
87 Spr SP 23.0/RL7 2303 fps
117 Horn RN 24.0/IMR30313 1975 fps
120 Spr BT 23.0/H322 1897 fps
