    I load mine with Unique. 83gr TMJRN over a 3.0gr. charge. The bullets and brass can be bought at Graf & sons.

    reloading 8mm Nambu

    Thanks for your update,most useful to me,I am unable to obtain jkt heads due to the high cost of freight from the USA to my home,so I have to use cast homemade.I Have both the 1914 & the pocket 97,which have never been fired (since ww2 that is)so I am being cautious for a first attempt.Also none of the reloading or cartridge books I have give a powder loading,so I am most grateful for your reply. I will do 3 rds at 2.5grns,and work up from there. Best regards Kestral.
