    I know I put this up here before, but now I made some ammo I thought I would put some better pictures up. :cool:
    Mines a Type 99 from Nagoya Arsenal made between 1937-1942 (I couldnt figure out a actual date), and it still has the mum!! :D The bayonet is the same era with the straight quillion, made by Toyko loom works under supervision of Nagoya...
    The ammo was made from old military .30-06, cut down and sized to 7.7 Jap.

    Anybody else have a Arisaka that they shoot? Any thoughts, suggestions?

    The ammo I made.... second pic shows 2 7.7 rds. I made. The last is comparing the 7.7 with the .30-60.

    It's much easier to make ammo from 8x57 Mauser brass. You just neck it down to .311, load it up and shoot. It's a millimeter short but so what.

    Never heard that, but the rounds look similar.. I barely come across .30-06 brass let alone 8mm Mauser..... Thanks for the tip though :)

    Shot the Arisaka today and I definitely need more practice with it.... I like the sights and the action is one of the nicest ive ever shot on a old mil-surp, Waay better than a Mosin! I was shooting at 100 yds and kept hitting low... I dont even wanna show my target, its sad and embarrassing.. :eek: I did alot better with my ol' Winchester....
