    Your question is far too broad to answer. Be more specific in what you are asking as to caliber,weapon and components.Are you referring to the 7.62x25 Tokarev? There are many pistols and submachine guns chambered for that round.

    Whether that bullet will work in your gun or not, depends.

    You'll need to "slug the barrel" in order to find out if that bullet will suffice.

    Slugging the barrel is simply using a softer lead & gently pounding it through the barrel.
    Then you can measure the slug.

    Is it .308 or smaller?
    Probably not, but there's no guarantee.

    lead bullets don't do too well, the velocity is far to high for that. you could load lighter but I would think it might not cycle well. Also for good performance you really want to keep the weight under 100 grains when possible.

    Yes, I mean tokarev-33.
    I have lee mold .309-120, and I want create "manstop" cartrige. (my method-front side drilling for deeeeep HollowPoint bore).
    Of course I slug the barrel.
    My Lee mold .309-120 have .311 real diameter !And my slug have .310 .
    So in my opinion - this is good.
    But my questions :
    1. Length Lee bullet ".309-120" will create a safe cartridge 7.62 tok. ? (of course 120gr bullet need weight reduction to 110 gr )
    that is, little bit more sitting depth in brass is not dangerous?
    2. If dangerous can I use wadcutter for stabilize pressure and whether it is really effective??
    3. How to choose wadcutter size(volume)?
    4. Wadcutter will reduce start load data for powder?
