7.62x25mm Tokarev

This little round was used for years by the USSR and it's allies. It's been around since 1930, and has been used in several hand guns and submachine guns such as the TT-33, CZ-52, and the PPD-40 submachine gun. It was based off the 7.63x25mm Mauser cartridge (which was used in the Mauser C-96 pistol) that was gaining popularity at the time.

The round uses a 30 caliber bullet (.308 -.309) which typically weighs 85-90 gr, and is fired at velocities of 1200-1700 FPS. Lighter bullets can be pushed past 2000 FPS. The 7.62 Tok is also known for it's accuracy, and it's long range (compared to other handguns).

Personally, I'd like to see a lightweight semi auto rifle chambered in this round, and some ballistic tip/soft point bullets made for it as well. It would make a decent small game gun.

the 35 Whelen. this is 30-06 case necked up for .358 diameter bullets. the 35 Whelen was developed in 1922 by Col. Townsend Whelen with the help from James V. Howe who later on went to fame with Griffin & Howe. it is just another one of the cartridges that has been based off the 30-06.

The thing I like about the 35Whelen is the fact that it is based on the 06 brass. When I lived out in the bush up in Alaska it was easy to come by the 06 brass. I would fire form the brass by loading it with a healthy charge of Bullseye powder (5grn) then plug it with wax or hard soap. After being fired in the 35W rifle, I could run it through the de-primer and sizing die for 35Whelen. then cut and trim as needed. Good to go 35Whelen sized up from 30.06 brass.'
My next will be a 25.06 rifle for pasture poodles. As you can see I am starting up a collection of rifles based on the 06 brass just for cause they are

sounds like you are like me and like cartridges based off the 30-06! one that you need to check out is the 280 Reminton. we discussed it earlier in this thread. basically a 30-06 necked down to a 7mm. ballistics are a little better than the 270 Win., and just short of the 7mm Rem. Mag. excellent cartridge and under appreciated.

another one i plan on discussing at some point later on that i have been interested in, the 338-06. a 30-06 necked up to use .338 diameter bullets. have been rolling around the thought of building one for the fun of it.

I do have a 338 Win Mag that is why I have not gone to the 338-06. Plus not really a big need for that cal. here in Maine.

i have plenty enough to fill any needs, and not near enough to fill my wants!

with the fact that i reload and have been for a few years now, i feel less dependent upon having to settle for the more common calibers due to cost of ammo. i am more likely to buy lesser common calibers because i don't have to ely upon buying expensive factory loaded ammo and can build premium ammo much cheaper. as long as there are dies and brass, then i can reload!
