Mild loads for 7.62x25 tokarev?

Discussion in 'Pistol Cartridge Data' started by FRED J WAHL, Jan 30, 2016.

  1. Hey, All,
    Does anyone have any good, proven mild loads using Lead "boolits" for the 7.62X25 Tokarev caliber? I have a CZ-52 and a bunch of cases I'd like to try, but load data for this caliber is very sparse-- I have a few loads from Lee's Reloading manuals, and have two of Lee's .30 Cal. molds that drop 100 Grain+ bullets at .309, but have had a problem with jacketed .30 Carbine (308.) bullets in that the ogive taper is too radical to get a good grip on them in the sparse case necks.
    Any help would be much appreciated!
    Cheers,
    Fred (Honcho)

    If FRED Knows his stuff, he can make a hard-cast boolit work... ;)

    Have you considered using load data for .30 Mauser (7.63x25)?

  14. Hey, All,
    Thanks for all the responses, and advice, it's given me some info to work with!
    I've been casting bullets for well over 60 years now, and can put together a very hard alloy, if need be-- I figure I'll try some with Lyman spec #2 Alloy, bought from Missouri Bullet company, and then blend my own, adding some Antimony, and water quenching them.
    I had loaded up 80 rounds in 8 recipes, to try out, using Lee dies, and lubing the cases, as they specified, but got a bad shock when I went to the range to try them out! None of the loads would chamber! Bummer! Old Dummy here didn't try to chamber an empty, sized case in the CZ-52, before making all the test loads up! I wasn't expecting any problems, since I own over 30 sets of Lee dies, and have never had a problem with them-- I got my Micrometer and Dial calipers out and measured a sized case from the Lee die, and then measured some commercial "S&B", "PPU", and Winchester ammo, and found, sure enough, that the Lee sized case was WAY over spec! So the Lee die is on the way to them now, with a sample sized case, to let them check it out. (My experience with Lee has been very good, at backing their products, and making it right with their customers--)
    Anyone want to help me pull 80 7.62X25 Tok bullets? (Groan--)
    Will keep you posted--
    Cheers,
    Fred (Honcho)

    A better bet is to get a 995 barrel, ream the chamber to 357Sig and
    slam it into a 4095 stock ;)
    That is one you can DIY, and get TOK-like performance from a
    Modern Round. Uses available parts, and mags :D
    It could be done! :eek:ccccc
     
  18. That's an idea... 40 cal conversion to 357 SIG:):)
