About the Cartridge

This cartridge was introduced in the United States along with the Browning-designed, Colt manufactured 'Vest Pocket' pistol. Also referred to as the 6.35mm Browning, this semi-rimmed centerfire cartridge has fairly high velocity for such a small size. However, the energy it delivers at any range is quite low. This, combined with the full metal jacketed bullet, adds up to a very poor stopping or killing power on anything. The .25 ACP is not powerful enough for hunting anything but pests, nor is it adequate for serious self defense. However, the .25 auto caliber pistols are popular because of their small size and low cost.

In the1963 Bond film, SPECTRE agent Red Grant (Robert Shaw) carries a very small hammer-fired automatic in an ankle hoster which he uses to overpower 007. Most .25 ACP pistols have shrouded hammers, the Baby Browning, for example, or an abbreviated hammer like the DAO CZ Model 45. The Beretta Model 950 has a spurred hammer, but it also has the distinctive Beretta open-top slide which Grant's gun lacks. I believe the gun used in the film was an Astra Cub.
