Well said.I am certainly no expert on the C96 or 7.63x25 ammunition I do however shoot my share of 7.62x25 in my Tokorev pistols. The point I should like to make is there seems to be a segment of the shooting public that is devoted to attempting to fire ammunition in a firearm for which it was not designed. Why this is I do not know, human nature? Often I read on forums from the person who insist it is safe to shoot .38 Super and 9mm Luger in pistols chambered for 9mm Largo (Bergman) and other such comparisons ....I contend the weapon should receive the ammunition for which it is chambered and barring a catastrophic event where experimentation is survival, the correct ammo should only be used. I value my fingers and firearms so I will continue my course of using proper calibers for a given application.
Back in the day I had a fellow bring in an Astra Model 300, chambered for the .380 ACP, for repair. He said he fired it once and it locked up on him. I could see the slide was partially retracted and part of a brass case was visible. I made sure the visible case was a fired case and took it in back. When I finally got it open and the case out I discovered the case was from a round of 9 mm Luger ammunition. When I went back out and asked how he managed to chamber a 9 mm Luger cartridge in a .380 chamber he replied, with a perfectly straight face, "with a hammer".
Some people just expand my sense of the possible.
