    Huh, what?

    NEW 7.62×25 ammo?

    I’ve been buying 7.62×25 S&B rounds for quite some time, and the Winchester offerings have been out there for a while, too. BTW, the S&B brass is reloadable (and I’m sure the Winchester is, too), which makes my CZ-52 very happy! Now if I could just get a new decocker that won’t fail the pencil test, I’d carry the gun for CCW…

    Hmm. It’s not, based on published specs, a bad cartridge, just one historically unpopular in the West.

    If it becomes popular enough, there will be a market for defensive ammo using top-tier modern hollowpoint bullets. The bottlenecked case designs generally exhibit good feed reliability in handgun platforms. Is anyone else pondering something along the lines of a Winchester Ranger T-Series (nee “Black Talon”) bullet at 1500+ feet per second?

    Perhaps delivered from a double-column 1911 platform? Or, for the faddists out there, perhaps you’re imagining a double-column mag holding 18 or 20 rounds of modern 7.62x25mm hollowpoints mated to your preferred polymer pistol?

    I think you could do a lot worse.

    That gun speaks Maserati to me, like the .45 acp speaks muscle car.
