Any feedback on this loader of nuclear 7.62x25 loads?

    About a year ago I found someone selling extremely hot, yet purportedly safe 7.62x25 loads on several of the firearm auction sites. His feedback was numerous and pristine, so I swore I would pick up a box of his ammunition if I were ever to purchase a CZ-52.

    The guy who goes by "Ron" at Reed's Ammunition & Research offers various JSP and JHP loads for the CZ-52, with (again, purported) velocities reaching 1900 FPS with an 85gr JSP.

    Assuming there's no overwhelming negative feedback of this guy gleaned from this post, I will be placing an order for his 93gr Hornady JSPs that promise velocities reaching 1770 FPS for play dough testing and various other things.

    So, to sum things up, does anyone here have any experience with Reed's Ammunition & Research products sold at www.auctionarms.com & www.gunbroker.com ?

    If not, you'll see some new play dough expansion tests here at THR in the coming weeks.

    I think the 10mm guys over at glocktalk.com talk about Reeds every once in a while.

    See they've also got some new "test fired only" CZ-52's on gunbroker for $179.99 w/ $200.00 "Buy it now."

    NEW CZ-52 7.62x25 Test Fired Only!!

    Looks suspiciously like the two unissued CZ's I got from AIM surplus for $109.00 :scrutiny:

    WonderNine, you're on the money when you say Ron's ammo is pricey. I was a bit diffident after receiving a price qoute, but I did finally decide to place an order after a friend agreed to go in half.

    Still plenty steep, but for about $25 each, we will both receive 25 rounds of 90gr XTP JHPs (1800 FPS) and 25 rounds of 93gr Hornady JSP (1770 FPS).
    I'm under the impression the velocities could very well be a bit exagerated, but I do find the prospect of a 7.62x25 generating 650 FPE at the muzzle intriguing!

    If our CZ52s aren't shot loose and we're happy with the results, I'll probably buy a reloader and dies to make more myself if needed, but I don't think I'll put too many loads of such power through my surplus CZ.
    I believe it will see nothing but S&B ball after this little stint.

    I must say that I am looking forward to the play dough results though....
