    I may be late on this one, but I saw an article about it in Combat Handgun magazine. Here is a link to the specs on the round. Just wondering if anyone carries this round?

    I had a lousy test with the 25 acp Gold Dot. 35 grain that runs around 1000 fps.
    Failure to expand and even performed lousy as a FMJ in a wetpack test.
    In these sub-calibers go FMJ because most likely your JHP will act as such.

    Also, is that picture to scale?

    I think not. I would stick with solids.

    Oh, I wouldn't carry it. And Yes, I KNOW, even a .22 well placed will do the job. I just want at least a 9mm. I was curious if anyone had seen/read anything on it.

    I found a couple boxes of this recently and shot a bit of it out of an NAA Pug and Ruger Single Six before I ended up selling off both guns. Muzzle blast and flash were lower than most of the conventional 22 mag ammo that I had on hand, and maybe kicked a touch less in the Pug. Accuracy was fair but not great in both guns.
