Where can I find some?

I have a type 99 Arisaka in GREAT shape. I have a couple hundred rounds of factory brass cased ammo. I have a set of FL dies, but I can't find any load data.

Can someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks,

Many years ago I used 3031 with 130gr bullet and a charge of 46grs. Also, used 150gr bullet and 41grs. In one of my old books from the 70's it shows 4064 with 180 grs bullet and 45grs,

I am sure you find more info on the net for re-loading.

Speer 8 & 9 has data. Norma's website also. I have compared charge weights for similar bullet weights with .308 Win and they are close I'd stay 1 grain under max with .308 data for the 7.7mmx58 loads. RL15, IMR4064, 4320, 4895, N203 and even W844,846 have worked for me.

Almost all reloading manuals have 7.7x58 load data.
Also most of the powder manufactures have 7.7x58 load data on their web sites.

I agree 100%. The data is out there.

I am gonna try some Soviet Extra match bullets and Target bullets in 7.7 and 303 Brit.. Hopefully I can find some powder data but I will figure it out. I will have to pull bullets from some amazing loads but these bullets are very impressive in Soviet rifles. I have got to try them in these other rifles.

The good soviet LB bullets are also very effective when loaded in 7.7 Japanese cases. They are also pretty cheap.

I have used all kinds of powder for my 7.7 rounds any imr,hodgen 4895 , varget, imr4064,ram shot big game, all gave excellent results in my 3 rifles. There are many more rifle powders will work but i like those choices for all my bolt actions.from 8mm.06 to 7.6254r. Works well in all ,i suggest the you buy new lee or hornady reloading manual , the cost is well worth it and you have every load you will ever need in those two manuals.sierra loads are good as well , i just prefer hornady over all else , personel choice .
