    Anyone loading 25ACP? I have a Lee Loadmaster, and noticed that the three-die set is available from Lee, but no other information. I collect "mouse guns" and the price of 25ACP is keeping them from being enjoyed.

    I would also need to know of a good bullet (source) or mold.

    I load 'em. I don't know of a bullet source. I found some, several years back, and bought a butt load of brass and bullets. Still got a lot left. Only mold I'm aware of is the Lyman. 252435. Out of production. Shows up on ebay every now and again.

    I see Powder Valley, Inc. has Speer bullets for that particular round...special order it appears. $16 a 100 count.

    I loaded for it some time ago and I think I was using a 35 grain Speer Gold Dot hollowpoint and some other 35 grain hollow points but I don't remember the make and they zinged out of a little Colt pretty good.

    Thanks for the info...I can get the brass and bullets, and likely the shell-plate and dies from Lee. Appreciate your help.
