i don,t think that,s a 25 ACP,all 25 ACP i,ve ever seen were fully jacketed.That bullet is heeled and I,ve never seen that on a 25ACP.I don,t know what it is without at least a diameter measure but not a 25 ACP.

Where they fully jacketed when they came out in 1905?

In an admittedly quick search to find something similar,only one I could find that resembles that one in appearance is a 38 Short Colt.Remarkably similar.Still need that diameter to resolve it.Could also be some flavor of 32.I,m not busting any one here,I would like to know what it is,whoever finds out.All this,including what I,ve written is a guess unless we can get some measurements,especially the diameter.
