This 7.7 X 58mm load is a low-pressure round designed for your vintage military rifle. At 150 grains accelerated to 2,300 fps (26" barrel) it is easy on your shoulder and your old Arisaka. This is a great way to exercise that old type 38 or type 99 rifle. Despite pressures well under 40k PSI, these rounds are not recommended in "last ditch" rifles. As a general rule, these last ditch "firearms" should be admired for their historical significance, but NOT for their ability to shoot.
This Speer spitzer soft point can also be used to take deer-sized game at shorter distances.

7.7 Ammo is fine
To the reviewer Alvin P. who complained that the ammo seemed to be repackaged PPU brand ammo and then marked up - This is not PPU manufactured ammo, it is just PPU brand brass. PPU and Norma are the only commercial manufacturers of this brass right now, with Xcaliber and Precision Cartridge using the PPU brand of brass to load the ammo on since it is less expensive than the pricey Norma brass. Since this caliber is likely loaded on much slower equipment as opposed to the full speed Ammoload or Camdex type machines for popular calibers, it ends up being more expensive - the same as any oddball caliber loaded more manually.

I’ve never received my order.
I’m at a loss, as I just received this email asking for a review of your site and product, but I am yet to ever receive the product for which I purchased several weeks earlier. Any clarification would be greatly appreciated because at this moment I am extremely unhappy.
1/25/18 XC response: Brandon, I sincerely apologize for this error- it is completely on us. In late September '17 (your order was 9/25) we experienced some growing pains surrounding upgrades to our shipping and POS (point of sale) software. Despite a very strong effort from our team, your order (and one other) did not ship. While this doesn't immediately fix your failed shipment, we can proudly say that these two orders have been the only instances of failed shipments to date. Our systems have been augmented and brought up to date. Thanks to your review, we will further strengthen our process and controls around reviewing shipped orders and printed shipping labels.
Thank you for your honest feedback. This keeps us honest and helps us improve. We will follow up with you shortly to make sure you have been made whole...and then some.

My go to for my hard to find ammo
Excellent place to buy from and quality ammo.. Renee B. on Dec 13th 2017
Great ammo, Great price
Type 99 ammo are hard to find these days. Found this product on ammoseek and it has fired and cycled through my Arisaka without a hitch. These are great reloads with good accuracy. Cheapest 7.7 box you can find.
XCaliber 10/9/17: We're glad you enjoyed these! Please keep in mind XCaliber loads all ammunition with new, virgin brass unless otherwise noted. Unknown on Oct 6th 2017
Affordable, and packs a punch.
Smooth action, cartridge loads/ejects without any hickups. Accurate for my needs, consistent results over the 20 shots I took on my first use. Will buy again. John Paul on Aug 20th 2017
7.7x58 Japanese Ammo
This was ammo was perfect. Cycled through the action smoothly, fired flawlessly. Thank you for providing this unique caliber ammo in such good quality. Cliff Nelson Clifford N. on Jul 18th 2017
Jap 7.7mm Ammo
This ammo does not shoot as accurately as the 174gr. FMJ in my Jap Type 99 1941 rifle.
XCaliber 7/16/17- Thanks for the input, Darryel.
While the 150gr is more popular right now, the 174 gr is definitely a superior load. We like to provide this 150gr load for guys that
- place greater importance on cost vs. accuracy
- are nervous to shoot a particular type 99 for the first time (post war)
- desire to delay throat erosion or other normal wear and tear on their gun
Thanks for your business, and we hope to hear from you again.

Email after email wanting a review just days after receiving product
I mean really what do you want this review to say? bullets arrived? They are pointed and shiny? The unrelenting emails asking to review a product which just arrived seems unnecessary. How often does one get rifle ammunition and then shoot it immediately? Even a week later? A month? Perhaps build in a delay so one can give a favorable review of the product? I'm sure the product is great but wont know for some time.
XCaliber 7/16/17- Ouch. We will work on limiting the Email communications and I like your idea of adding a delay. We utilize a few different apps to help draw more reviews, and unfortunately it sounds like we have duplicated efforts in this area. Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Paul.
Please keep in mind we are a relatively new company and our continued growth and success greatly depends on these reviews. We post them all and strive to address anything less than 5 stars.
XCaliber 8/4/17- There should no longer be "unrelenting" emails (there were two) requesting a review.

Hard to find ammo
I used ammoseek.com to search for this round and you had the best price and delivered quickly. The ammunition looked and shot good. Darcia A. on Jul 14th 2017
Worked sweet! It was nice to make the Arisaka talk again. You guys are one of the only places I found that manufactures and sells ammunition for it. KG C. on Jul 12th 2017
Very nice rounds
Great ammo for a old type 99 James H. on Jul 11th 2017
Shoots good, packs a punch Tucker W. on Jul 7th 2017
7.7X58 Japanese Arisaka- 150gr
Excellent round for my type 99 Michael M. on Jun 23rd 2017
Hard to find ammo at a good price. Got it for grandpas old ww2 rifle and have not shot them yet. My dad is happy to have them though. it was less than 40$ including shipping. that is better then every other website that had them stocked (45-50$ without shipping) Sara S. on Jun 19th 2017
Excellent quality ,very reasonable pricing
Very satisfied with these rounds.This is my second batch and I expect the performance to be the same. andrea difranza on Jun 17th 2017
Excellent quality ammo that shoots well. My only problem is that the ammo is in reality PPU ammo packaged and named Xcaliber. PPU ammo is usually a few dollars cheaper than the price paid for Xcaliber.
Alvin P. on Jun 16th 2017
Fast shipping, quality container, good looking ammo.
Have not shot the 7.7 we ordered for my grandpas war rifle. At least my dad can shoot it if he wants to now. This 7.7 Japanese bullet is hard to find for less than 50$ a box. We paid less than 40$ with shipping included. Unknown on Jun 12th 2017
Shot 5 rounds and seemed pretty accurate out of an old rifle. Unknown on Jun 1st 2017
First off, I'm giving 4 stars only because I haven't fired the ammo yet. They came on time and look very good. I check them on the micrometer they are in spec. I had a concern about the shipping address and Andy immediately replied to my email and took care of my issue. The folks at Xcaliber Ammo definitely have their shit together. I will be doing more business with them as long as I can!
Thank you very much,
JRG Sr. Jason Gouveia Sr. on May 25th 2017
The ammo worked very nicely in my Arisaka type 99. No issues whatsoever. It comes in a very nice box and shipping was really fast as well. A little on the expensive side for ammo but it's available and the price seems to be reasonable considering what others charge for it. 5/5, would recommend. I'd buy more if I decide to shoot the rifle more Alex Kish on May 23rd 2017
