I have purchased a very nice CZ-52 as a cheap fun plinker, but I'm wondering if anybody has ever worked up hollowpoint defense rounds for this bottlenecked Tokarev ammo? S&B makes new non-corrosive ammo pushing an 88 grain FMJ somewhere around 1,500 fps. This will for sure put holes in people, in one side and out the other I'm guessing. Has anybody ever seen or created HP ammo in this .30 caliber Russian? Just curious, nothing serious here.

I load the .312 diameter 85grn speer HP over 6.0grs of unique for a velocity of 1500fps out of my Norinco tokarev. This is my "nightstand" load and it shoots great as well.

Here's some data that might help:

Ramshot has data for True Blue and Enforcer, but you'll have to e-mail them through their website. It wasn't developed in time for the load guide: http://www.ramshot.com/powders/
