    Are you looking to buy from a member, asking for suggestions on websites to check out, ranges to scrounge from....give us a break here. A little detail goes a long way towards getting the proper answer to your question.

    Ah. In that case, you're probably better off posting a "want to buy" ad over on the Reloading Equipment & Components section of the buy/sell/trade forum here. Lots of reloading gear being sold and swapped arouund.

    As far as sites to check out - maybe Starline, or Brassmanbrass.com. Heck, just google ".25 ACP brass for sale" and I bet you'll come up with a ton of hits.

    I see you have posted a WTB ad for 25ACP. IIRC, On that same forum there is a member that has had 25ACP for sale in the past . IIRC the member's High Road name is bsd650.

    She has sold 32ACP to me and I remeber her having some 25ACP at various times. I think her name was Beth.

    Regards,

    I'd just like to remark that shooting 5,025 rounds in a 25acp pistol shows that you have much more patience and perseverence with that cartridge than I have. I've never loaded and fired more than a couple dozen at a time. When the brass gave out, I quite.

    Mine got along well with W231/HP38 powder, but didn't get along well with most of the other common pistol powders like Bullseye, Unique, Red Dot and AA2 and Titegroup. It was a lot easier to get consistent charges with 231, the other powders were difficult throw a 1.0 or 1.2 grain charge.

    What bullet did you buy? 35 or 50 grain fmj?

    +1000 Ants!

    I can't imagine even trying to reload 5,000 rounds of .25 ACP.

    Dang cases & bullets are so small it's like trying to stack greased BB's!

    Makes my hands hurt just thinking about it!
    I'd better go take another couple Aleve!

    :confused:

    Easy Fellers!

    I think the OP meant to post 500 25ACP. Not 5,000. At least I hope so.
    I mean 32ACP gave me fits- little bitty bullets, cases, powder charges - arrgh, my hands and eyeballs are still tired.

    Seriously, my hat is off to the reloader who can actually produce large quantities of 25ACP, and do it well. Its got to be a chore.

    Regards,

    Here's my prediction for Rudy850:

    He'll have a blast shooting that gun. But he'll never use up 5,000 bullets.
    This purchase will be a lifetime stock for 25acp. Go have fun!

    I can load about two magazines full of 25acp, and then it feels like time to move on.

    With hot rod handloads, I can get the 25acp to make noise and recoil.
    I got the jacketed bullets for a penny each.
    My fingers just don't like it.

    I can load .223 ok.
    It must be the length.

    Ouch!

    When I was young and bought a .25 for deep concealment, I had no trouble with it. It went bang and didn't bother me. Now that I'm older and used to heavier caliber handguns and getting a higher grip on the gun, shooting that thing rips two grooves through the web of my hand every time. I'm too damn old to learn better too!

    I'll still keep mine as a just in case gun, and God love the guy, but I just can't see reloading, much less shooting, 5000 rounds of .25ACP.

    How did you buy the bullets? They just have a number listed and its says it restricted sale. I would be interested in some of the brass or bullets if you want to get rid of some.

    I loaded for a 25 acp, Bauer), many years ago,(late 70's). I still have the dies, some empties, a few 50 gr. rem fmj' even a lyman 2 cavity boolit mold! Rudy, if you're interested, I'll make you a deal on the whole kit & caboodle!

    Oh, get yourself a magnifier and a couple sets of tweezers, ask me how I know.

    I figured what the hey, it's centerfire and reloadable, so why not?:eek::what::scrutiny::uhoh:

    Adam, they're Lyman 452435, casts a 50 grain RN plain based boolit. The dies are RCBS, part # 21004. Both have some rust on them, but I think they'd be serviceable with some clean-up. Shoot me a PM, we'll discuss it.

    Rudy, they cast pretty well, just like any other Lyman steel mold, BUT the tiny boolit in regular sized blocks, it was hard to keep them hot enough. The lead boolit shot pretty good, I just got tired of trying to find the empties among the 22 rimfire shells that are always around a firing line.:banghead::cuss:
