7.62 X 25 vs Level 3 A Body armor! [ame] Interesting test but Mac again doesn't exactly know what he is talking about, says X25 should easily hit 1300 fps, actually most does 1600+. The title before and during vid says level 3A but he keeps saying level 2, however on panel it says 3A also says he cant find any Milsurp, yeah right.

Tokarev owner here. The 7.62x25 is quite a powerful cartridge. Many argue it was the precursor to the idea of 5.7x28 and .357 SIG. In fact, anytime you have a necked cartridge in a pistol you can rest assured it's a HOT round. The application you would consider "excellent" will depend on if converting a 1911 to chamber .30 Tok is worthwhile.

I heard that 7.62x25 will penetrate some body armor. I am not sure what level vest they will go thru. Maybe you should google it. Handguns in 7.62x25 are the Tokarev and the CZ-52. Both are very inexpensive as far as handguns go. _____ Remember the Alamo! 04-20-2009, 09:10 PM ...

Answer (1 of 7): The Tokarev is a pistol/subgun round that had no equal until fairly recently. The FN Five-Seven is the modern pistol and round with a similar concept. Both have small diameter bullets being pushed to much higher velocities than traditional pistol calibers like the 9mm or 45ACP. T...

Oh, and few handgun rounds penetrate body armor like 7.62x25. Posted: 5/11/2009 6:34:23 PM EST Well, I happen to shoot a 7.62 X 25 tok. I also happen to shoot a 9mm. I shoot a couple of .45's too, along with a .380 and a couple of 9X 18's thrown in for good measure. I have never shot at anyone with any of those cartridges, and Im sure that 99 ...

Interesting Topic. Several years ago BATFE issued a bulletin on the 7.62x25 cartridge and the potential for defeating soft body armor. At my PD we keep 2 CZ52s and a supply of 7.62x25 ammo for testing armor. We cronographed both Norinco with 85 grain steel core and S&B lead core ammo. As I recall the Norinco was doing over 1500 fps out of the CZ.

During the hearing, General Milley stated that the Army is considering replacing the 5.56x45mm chambered M-4/M-16 series of rifles with a new rifle chambered in the larger 7.62x51mm cartridge. Specifically, he noted that this potential change is being driven by the need for a new Army bullet that can penetrate body armor. General Milley said:

7.62×25 Tokarev cartridge is a higher-pressure 1930 update of the 1896 high-velocity 7.63mm Mauser. Originally designed for pistols, it was also used in several submachine guns. As a result, it used mainly medium speed powders and produces a substantial muzzle flash. Most of the ammunition available is military surplus, with thick jackets and great penetration–a predictable product […]

With more criminals wearing body armor it's got me thinking of switching to a defensive caliber that will better pierce body armor.

By body armor do you mean steel armor plates or IIIA soft armor vests? Rifle rounds vs IIIA vests like a hot knife through butter. Most level III plates on the other hand will usually stop up to a 30.06 or more depending on the plates. Some of the level 4 armor ceramic plates will stop 300 win mag, and some AP rounds

Answer (1 of 7): It was replaced because of overpenetration. Soviet military favored Tokarev pistol because it was powerful and also it had a barrel similar to that of issued combat rifle and SMG making production of all of the above easy and cost-effective. The problem appeared in 1950s when th...

The 7.62x25 you have probably penetrated because 1.) it's way faster than 9mm or .45 and 2.) you probably didn't have a top quality vest. Not because of a steel core, which was probably soft and of poor quality. Another example of steel core not equating armor penetration - the M855.

Sooo 7.62x25 is the ammo for the TT and it's probably The Worst pistol caliber in game currently and with that it makes the TT the weakest pistol too. As if the TT wasn't weak enough previously too besides that one period. The best armor piercing ammo for the TT, 7.62x25 pst gzh has 19 pen...

Oh yeah, arguably some of the greatest submachine guns of all time were chambered in 7.62x25. However, none of them were designed in quite the modern context of a PDW, with armor piercing, extreme compactness and concealability, and operation at slightly longer ranges than standard submachine guns being specific goals.

Being a high velocity round 7.62x25 will pierce some levels of armor but lead cored bullets are not specifically designed to pierce armor. If no confirmation can be made I suggest the caption be changed to reflect brass vs. steel case instead of non-AP vs. AP. Nailedtooth 01:52, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

If you are shooting through body armor etc a 9mm will have a better chance then a 45, but a 45 in general will keep a straighter trajectory if hitting the corner of a building. Now I can go into hours of round comparsion etc, but lets give some round numbers here. Considering hollowpoints as our base. a 7.62x25 averages about 1300 fps

This is not because I have a particular need or desire to penetrate body armor.This is merely because its a particularity of the cartridge,something it does well. Any information about this aspect and any other of the 7.62x25 Tok is for informational purposes only. First,a little bit of history.

These tests, performed on soft Kevlar body armor stopped the 9mm slug, but were defeated by the much higher velocity and smaller cross sectional area of the 5.56 caliber slug. The recoil was notably less, the 9mm pistols, allowing quicker and more accurate follow up shots. The ballistics of the 5.7×28 were more favorable as this round had a ...

A G19 sized pistol in 7.62x25 with whatever that version of +P loads would be and some Winchester Rangers, HST's, or Gold Dots would have been nasty for carry. Put it in a PCC and I'd get real excited, especially since it'd play nice with the prolific market for 30cal suppressors and muzzle devices unlike 9mm.

Let's consider another example. A 7.62x25 round is fired from a TT pistol at class 3 body armor. In the first test run, we will use the all popular LRNPC round. It features 66 base damage, but only 6 penetration power. When we start shooting at a class 3 armor vest with 45 armor points, it will take a long time to wear the vest down, as it only ...

Answer (1 of 10): Extremely favorably. I own firearms in each. 7.62x25 is a fantastic caliber. I think it is frankly the biggest tragedy in the history of handguns that it, and 30 Mauser, never took off in the US commercial market. 7.62x25 flies from a standard 4–5 inche barrel at something like...

The last .223 ammunition I bought was LC-75 193. 6 complete bandoliers and 2, as new, GI 50 ammo cans. Cost per round was .286 cents apiece, 840 rounds for $240. Back to OP. 5.7x28 is one of those cartridges. The 22 TCM, as a cartridge, blows …

The NEWLY manufactured Zastava M57 ( with 2 new mags ) can be bought from 230-300 dollars NEW. What is special about the 7.62X25 is that it will penetrate body armor that will eat a 45 ACP. The Privi Partizan and Winchester ammo have advertised velocities of over 1600 fps MV and over 500 FT LBS ME.
