    Can someone help with 100-125 gr hp loads for the 7.62x25?
    Thanks

    IN my opinion that's far too much bullet for x25 without getting into the subsonic side of reloading

    I'm not sure what would constitute a good load in a carbine, but when I had a CZ-52, I used the half jacketed 100gr Speer Plinker with a stiff load of Unique with good results.
    In a carbine, I would think a bit slower burn powder like AA-9 or AA-7, might be a better choice. The relatively small case capacity does create a problem for slower powders though.
    You may need to email a powder distributor to get data for your endeavor.

    115 grain cast bullet (like Magnus #203) and about 7 grains of Power Pistol. Or 9 grains of #7. Or about 9.5 grains of 2400.

    I think 110 grain hollow-point charges should be about the same.
