7.62X25Tokarev loads??

Anyone load for this? I cannot seem to find any data for it. Just got a CZ52 and would like to roll my own as I do for all my other guns. Or is it not worth the trouble? Thanks for any help.

The 5th edition Sierra reloading manual has a page devoted to the 7.62x25 Tokarev. I believe S&B still makes ammo loaded for that pistol also if you wanted that option.

Yup, they do. I just got a couple of boxes from AIM last week.

The CZ52 is a very weak pistol, the weakest I have ever tested of dozens.

The American load books for the 7.62x25mm Tokarev loads have all been dumbed down to protect the Mauser 1896 pistol, but it doing so, protect the weaker CZ52.

The surplus ammo is at the high pressure end, which put CZ52s, in danger.
They WERE designed for this pressure, albiet poorly.

From 2000 until 2004, Accurate Arms was publishing Tokarev pressure loads for the CZ52 only, assuming the CZ52 was strong. Be very careful in using those loads on a CZ52, the thin spot in the bottom of the chamber, formed by milling out a slot for the roller blocks, causes the chamber to split, sending pistol parts to the right.

AA's website now shows the dumbed down loads for the CZ52.
