    My brother in law found this carbine at a yard sale. It is in very good condition and shoots fairly straight. He was able to purchase a box of shells at a local dealers for $50.00 for 20.Has shot 5. I know RCBS makes reloading dies and we have potentially 20 brass casings. But what is the bullet dia. .284 or larger and what would be a good powder to use?

    The 7.7 jap is virtually identical to the .303 brit. except its rimless. You can safely use .303 brit data in the 7.7 jap.
