Load data for caliber "7.62 x 25 Tokarev"The 7.62x25mm Tokarev is a type of bottlenecked pistol cartridge developed in the Soviet Union in 1930 for use in their semi-automatic pistols. It was designed to be a compact and powerful round, much like the 7.63 Mauser it was based on.
The 7.62x25mm Tokarev uses a lighter 87 grain FMJ bullet that produces velocities approaching 1,500 feet per second with an energy level of 593 ft/lbs at the muzzle, making it one of the fastest handgun rounds available today.

The Commission internationale permanente pour l'épreuve des armes à feu portatives ("Permanent International Commission for the Proof of Small Arms" – commonly abbreviated as C.I.P.) is an international organisation which sets standards for safety testing of firearms. (The word portatives ("portable") in the name refers to the fact the C.I.P. tests small arms almost exclusively; it is ordinarily omitted from the English translation of the name.) As of 2015, its members are the national governments of 14 countries, of which 11 are European Union member states. The C.I.P. safeguards that all firearms and ammunition sold to civilian purchasers in member states are safe for the users.
To achieve this, all such firearms are first proof tested at C.I.P. accredited Proof Houses. The same applies for cartridges; at regular intervals, cartridges are tested against the C.I.P. pressure specifications at the ammunition manufacturing plants and at C.I.P. accredited Proof Houses.
