I dont have my reloading book handy. is this just a shortend 6.5 carcano round or a whole different deal. Have never bothered with this rifle, but do see them and have thought about picking one up to fill my carcano collection.

If you are referring to the Jap Type I. Its 6.5 Jap Arisaka. A type I has a 2 piece buttstock, mauser type floorplate/follower but a Carcano bolt/saftey.

My Type I is a great shooter--probably more accurate than the typical Carcano or Arisaka. Definitely get one if you have the opportunity. Just make sure it's complete, as parts are nearly impossible to find.
