I have dies for the 25 ACP as my daughter has a Baby Browning, and getting your fingers in there is a bit of a trick.

The loading press priming "tool" will work, but priming off line is much easier.

The powder charges are small, to say the least, and I found that W231 or HP-38 were the best for delivering micro charges of powder with my RCBS measure.

For sure, it makes sense to be able to load for your .25, as ya never know when some liberal finds a way to limit ammo purchases, and the factory stuff IS NOT cheap. But you will have to play with a couple bullets and be ready to tweak seating depth to have reliable handloaded ammo.

Have fun

Gauge , what gauge ?...We ain't got no gauge ...we don't need no stinking gauges !

Get brass by shooting factory ammo .

I've been reloading for 50+ years and never needed a special gauge . I own not one and can reload just fine .

If you have several firearms it might be good to get a case guage.

I have no idea who makes a case gauge for 25 ACP.
