    Bullet Casting for the Tokarev

    Has anyone experimented with casting bullets for the 7.62x25 Tokarev?

    I'd be interested in everyone's thoughts before I give it a try.

    Lyman 313249 over about 5 grains Unique works for my Type 54. Start lower, work up slowly, stop when group and function OK.

    The Lyman book lists the 313249 have you played with Lead Hardness? Are you sizing them?

    Thanks for the information

    Whatever alloy is in the pot seems to work. Sized .311 or .312" - not fussy.

    To me, it's just an interesting "plinker". Are you shooting precision matches with yours?

    No matches of mankind. The Tokarev's have just become a curiosity to me. I don't really need to reload for them I've got plenty of surplus ammo but I want to see what this pistol is really capable of.
