HOLY CRAP NO!

Power tool cartridges do NOT use gunpowder of the kind that is suitable for propelling a cartridge! You put a bullet in front of one and at the very least you're going to blow the rim off the case.

At worst you're going to shear the breech block right out of the gun.

Most of the .25 cartridges never made the transition from black powder to smokeless.

Even if they did, they were for use in rifles that were never known for their great strength.

DO NOT attempt to roll your own using power tool cartridges! Especially not the powder that is in the power tool cartridge!
