    30 carbine boolits in 7.62x25?

    Have some jacketed soft points I got from a friend. I got the feeling they might be a little loose but would really like some defensive loads for my TT-33 and CZ-52. 110 grains I think, any loadings this heavy?

    Mike your bullets, slug your bore as to size. A jacketed bullet up to .002" undersize for the bore should still shoot okay. My CZ52 has a .314" groove. I shoot a .3155" 120 grain Lyman 311576 out of it using AA#7. I don't shoot it much, I can't afford all of the brass it throws into next county that I can't find.
    We need somebody/something to keep the government (cops and bureaucrats too) HONEST (by non government oversight).

    Every "freedom" (latitude) given to government is a loophole in the rule of law. Every loophole in the rule of law is another hole in our freedom. When they even obey the law that is. Too often government seems to feel itself above the law.

    We forgot to take out the trash in 2012, but 2016 was a charm! YESSS!

    Fired in Czech CZ52.

    The Chinese have a subsonic 124-gr load, but I don't have any load data on it and the bullet profile is probably not commercially available.

    SSK Industries has the 7.62 Micro- and 7.63 Mini-Whisper, both based on the .30 Mauser in the T/C Contender, but the COL's are too much for the Tokarev or CZ52.

    From Cartridges of the World:
