I'd been thinking of getting one and was surprised to learn after checking 3 different loading data sites; the 9mm can be reloaded to higher velocities using comparable size bullets- a 85grn in a 9mm can be loaded to a higher velocity than 7.62x25 ,and 90..95..100 the same thing. I think for a inexpensive military sidearm with cheap surplus ammo available its OK, its not the all powerful round I've been hearing everywhere. Anything a 7.62x25 can do a 9mm can be loaded to do and better. Don't forget the 9mm was also used in the Schmeiser smg in WW2 at high velocity. It has been loaded down by manufacturers since WW2 for legal reasons. I'm interested in your thoughts on this, if I'm in error please correct me.
