Oh my GOD.

Now you've done it. You've all convinced CCA's own mad scientist/dreamer/gun nut to come blog with you.

Prepare for the onslought. All your Ortgies are belong to us.

You just *wait* till I've drawn and mocked up that .25acp Broomhandle mini-clone...

Oh lord. There'll be no living with him now.

Seriously, welcome to the club, Mike.

Why .25 ACP? Why not just go with .22 long rifle? I'd probably buy one in that chambering.

.25 because it's shorter, and with this style of action requiring 2x the cartridge OAL plus a little fudge room to function, every tenth of an inch matters.

It also keeps the magazines at right angles and very very thin. The .22 rim is ~.25" across and needs to stagger a little bit to keep the magazine in a perfect vertical plane, which increases the required width a little.

Yes, I know .25 has a semi-rim but it's not that extreme :)

There's also the little deal with having no JHP's for .22lr because of the heeled bullet design. .25 isn't going to be the mousegun everyone envisions with this design because I intend to have at least a 2.5" barrel. Long and thin, pen-like for concealment, so it's mistaken for *gasp* a pen, clipped into the pocket.
