    For Factory Loaded Ammo you are correct as 22Lr is tested through a 24 inch barrel and .25ACP is tested Through a a much shorter barrel. For Hand loaded .25ACP that is loaded to SAAMI 25,000psi MAP, you may be incorrect as slower burning powders...

    Have you looked at the NOE molds Group buy for the Ranch Dog design TL255-50-RF bullet molds? Also "Graf & Sons" currently has both PPU empty Brass and 50 grain bullets in stock. Best Regards, Chev. William

    I just placed An order for some PPU empty .25ACP Brass from "Graf & Sons" so no begins the wait for delivery. At $4.95 per 50 case bag, they are quite reasonable at this time, about 1/3 the cost of the Jagemann 100 piece bag from Midway. Best...

    Way Late Noticing this Thread BUT what did the PPU Brass Measure For its Length? The ones I have all are about .612", what CIP REQUIRES of European Manufacturers. Also "Jagemann Stamping", in the USA, makes .25ACP brass now but is more 'centered...

    P Flados, Rereading your post again and I caught a possible misconception in your discussion (I highlighted it in The quote above). The 3.0 grains of BE-86 behind a 63 grain Lead bullet was loaded in a G.F.L. made .25ACP case of .612" length and...
