Here I go again

Hi guys I am wanting to do a 35-90.

The idea going through my head at the moment is to use 45-90 brass and a 350 rem mag reamer run in .375" short. Using dies cut short too.

My only concern is case head diameter, being .513 for a 350 and .506 for a 45-90!

Is a .007" difference too much or okay?

I am hoping to end up with a rimmed 35-90 using cast bullets and either bp or trailboss so pressure will be low, but will I likely get a bulge at the head or worse a split?

What do you plan to do with this case? Is there an existing case that has similar characteristics to what you are proposing? If you wanted something different a 45/120 would be great fun and you are unlikely to see another one if you are out and about.
