    i don't care what you say about 25acp's

    they are fun to load!

    here's 10,000 on the bench to start packing.

    1.5 grains red dot ....53 grain round nose, powder coated white.

    (DO NOT ACCIDENTLY set a pack of mint TIC-TACS on the work bench!)

    candy at 800 FPS

    you might ask why 3 hornady L&L powder dispensers?

    answer: because one is painfully slow putting out 1.5 grains....2 dispensers not too bad ....i can keep up with 3 and get more done in the same time frame.

    Painfully slow? That would make me quit reloading. Cast, pc, size, and load 10k of 25 acp. No thanks but I wish you luck and pray for your sanity.

    I thought about reloading for my IJ 25 Auto, but since I have to use tweezers to pick up/hold 50 grain .224"bullets I prolly couldn't get a 50 gr 25 cal bullet into a case...

    So, doing a lifetime supply in one run... Not a bad idea, but i don't envy the finger cramps from using tweezers that many hours on end... I like the tic tac look though...

    How much does the Dillon 1050 conversion cost? Loading a dusting of powder + tweezer tiny bullet is beyond my patience. How did you find a .25 ACP that will last 10,000 rounds? I've seen several fail on the first range trip before 50 rounds were fired.

    Ooooooohhhh, the finger agony!

    Does it take 10,000 shots from a 25acp to kill something?
