25 acp vs 22lr

The 25acp delivers the same blow as the .31 cap & Ball revolver, that is to say 50 grains at 750 fps.

The cartridge was designed by John Browning for early blowback pistols that lacked a breech locking mechanism.

I collect little 25’s. The .32ACP would, of course be preferable.

To answer your question, I hunted for Glaser Safety Slugs and the folks that produce them don’t even catalog them anymore. One of te best and smallest 32 autos on the market is the Kel Tec P32. Post was not sent - check your email addresses! This ammunition's lack of performance is the sacrifice for a tiny, low-recoiling pistol.

.32 is a far better choice then the .25 or .22. The increased reliability of 22 LR ammunition did the quarter-bore no favors. When you mention the .25 ACP to someone and after the laughter dies down you will be told that you are better off buying a .22 Long Rifle for personal defense. But who will do it? Also bought the nickel job for $50. He has a soft spot for ballistics testing, pocket pistols, and French rifles. I took four one-gallon jugs and filled them with water and placed them back-to-back.

You just keep on what doing what you are doing, but don’t vote.

you think you are smarter than john moses browning? Yes but MAGNUM just sounds bigger and badder and would be a better name for marketing purposes. Millions of pistols come chambered for the puny round.

I enjoyed this article. You’ll sometimes here people saying that the .22 LR produces superior ballistics to the .25 ACP, so you should carry that. While this test was certainly not wholly scientific it was evidence that the little .25 ACP was certainly far and away above the performance of the .22 Long Rifle which is what has been compared to in a negative light. I would get her a Ruger SR22. However, I will soon be getting a S&W 442 and it will probably replace it.

But alas I dont have a pistol just a Savage bolt. The .25 ACP (Automatic Colt Pistol) (6.35×16mmSR) is a semi-rimmed, straight-walled centerfire pistol cartridge introduced by John Browning in 1905 alongside the Fabrique Nationale M1905 pistol.

Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. I ultimately ended up with Remington UMC and Fiocchi’s 50 grain FMJ loading and the 35 grain XTP hollow-point offerings from Hornady and Fiocchi. 25 ACP velocities at 7 yards: 865, 866, 875, 855 (35 grain JHP)

It was like a #9 or#11.

This is true comparing Hornady’s offering with Fiocchi, but the same firm’s ball ammunition is significantly behind plain store-bought Remington 50 grainers, my favorite load. Read on to find out. And while not the perfect defensive round, I have yet to meet the brave soul wanting to be shot with one. Speer Gold Dot 35 grain hollow-points round out the test.

Easy to conceal and at least some protection. Ultimately, I left the range thinking the little 25 deserved better loadings.

In .357 it gives options from .38 wadcutters for gentle training up to 180 grain magnums (if you want to set your target on fire).


In the heyday of firearms, the preference was to match a tiny cartridge to an oversized pistol.

That said, they compare very closely to each other when fired from a 2" barrel.

I decided to … Good information. 25s were even issued to various militaries in minor capacities. Are Yo-Yos Ruining Lake Fisheries Resources? a .22 is always nice to have around, but a .25 might just sit in the safe if you learn to handle something bigger.

The LCP is very easy to point shoot, has a decent trigger, and is tiny.

the .22 has weak rimfire ignition that takes a while to burn all the power! The little .22 penetrated the first two jugs but came to rest in the third, completely and perfectly mushroomed.

Voting makes people feel sad, very, very sad.

Browning spawned many imitators and the round was a big hit with the civilian market. The most important factor in a defensive pistol is its ability to go “bang” every time you press the trigger.

Although The High Road has attempted to provide accurate information on the forum, The High Road assumes no responsibility for the accuracy of the information. One can't deny the immutable laws of physics, but is bullet construction NOW the same as bullet construction almost 3 decades ago? Yeah I would like to see what a Federal HST, Cor-Bon DPX or even a Hydra-Shok in the 60-65 grain weight range loaded to 1200 FPS or so would do.

A PPK is actually a difficult gun to shoot for a beginner...they do have a pretty crappy trigger. Bersa makes their Thunder series in .22 and .380, beretta has the Bobcat in .22 and the Tomcat in .32 and the Cheetah series akodo mentioned can be had in .22 and .380 as well.

If you look at this article on the topic of .22 vs. .25 and compare the ballistics from the Baby Browning to those of the .22 mini revolver, you’ll see that they’re remarkably the same.

The SP101 is heavy to carry, but the weight makes it soft to shoot.

what? Hands down. Both the 22 LR and 25 ACP are scrawny little things, and itsy-bitsy pistols can be had to fire them. Get notifications in your email when articles are published, as well as our weekly newsletter packed with exclusive content! Taurus G3C Review After 4 Months, 1K Rounds.

I would be willing to bet your wife would do much better with a different pistol. My guess?
Still the .25 has been used successfully in the past for personal defense (hence the reason it is still being offered despite so many other guns out there).

I’m not asking you to agree with their conclusions, but their data is interesting. The .22 LR does produce superior ballistics to the .25 ACP, when you fire the .22 out of a pistol with a four inch barrel. It would easily go over 1000 FPS.

I would like to see some tests of the .25 NAA round from North American Arms though. Let me be clear on this one, I am not saying that the .25 ACP is an ideal defense round when compared to other more practical calibers, but any gun is better than nothing, and overwhelmingly all one has to do is present a pistol and the instinct for self preservation of not being shot dead on the spot kicks in and the bad guy quits there and then.

With a good sampling of ammunition, I packed up my LWS Seecamp, a 10% calibrated ballistic block from Clear Ballistics and went to the range.

What I received were hand-me-down stories and cliched one-liners. With arthritis and the ability to conceal it is still desired to look at the 25’s and 22’s to carry. The stretch cavities for both rounds were a solid inch in diameter and extending three inches in the block, a few inches upon entry. But pocket pistols were a long way off from today's popularity. (No flame intended.). My mother has a P32 and has no problems shooting it despite arthritis and a weak grip.

That protocol is between 12-18 inches of penetration of a 10 percent ordinance block and four layers of denim. Oh! .22 LR over the .25 ACP. Now, compare that to the larger calibers: .380 ACP, .38 Special, 9mm, .40 S&W, and .45 ACP all had between 13-17% failures to incapacitate. A good 25 ACP pistol was easy to hide, easy to fire, and very affordable, which eventually made the type targeted by the 1968 Gun Control Act. Finding full metal jacket 25 ACP is easy enough at your local outdoor store, but finding good hollow points is a challenge. Get all the news and updates from Gun Nuts in your email!

I decided to see how true that fact really is. If I were limited to the two and SD was the issue, I would find out why I was limited to those two and then overcome that limitation. I first bought a Raven in 1982 in Houston. So, according to Greg’s study, about a third of the people shot with a .25 or a .22 did not immediately change their behavior.

Thanks. If the bullet is more active on contact, would it improve lethality?

The .25 should do the trick.

Get her shooting.

The Colt has the advantage of twice the barrel length over the Walther, but I was still confident in my assumption that the .25 ACP would still outperform the .22.

A similar test using common brand 22 LR ammunition in the same sized handgun gave me similar results, with more than a few brands including CCI Stingers, exceeding the requirement.

Surprisingly the bullet made a noticeably larger impact, picking the first jug up and off the bench.

With a price point around $300 and a lot of standard features for that amount of green, the new Taurus G3C gives the buyer a lot of bang for the buck.

25 ACP velocities at 7 yards: 725, 727, 718, 730 (50 grain FMJ), 22 LR velocities at 7 yards: 860, 840, 850, 850 (36 grain HP).
