    I have loaded 6.5 & 7.7 Jap years ago.

    No different then anything else.

    You just need to find some brass with boxer primers.

    Hodgdon website has load data.

    Well I was looking for someone who had some or actively reloads it because I would be willing to purchase about 5 or so rounds to test out this Arisaka. I posted here because I didn't know where in the marketplace ammunition was to be bought/sold.
    Thanks for the info though RC, I don't reload so I don't really want to go spend 400+ dollars on reloading gear for 1 rifle. Maybe one day would love to get into it. Thanks

    Shooting 6.5 Japanese

    To bad your so far away away from Seattle I would let you join me and bang away. I love my 6.5 Japs. been shooting them for over 50 years now. One of my most enjoyed rounds.

    Go to Grarf and Sons and buy a box of ammo, Save the brass too as you can sell it if you don't want to reload.
