7.7 x 58 Japanese Arisaka 150gr. SP Light Recoil

Rated 4.79 out of 5 based on 29 customer ratings
(29 customer reviews)

$31.99

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 99 rifle.

This Speer spitzer soft point can also be used to take deer-sized game at shorter distances.

20 Rounds per box

Warning: If you have not yet fired your Type 99—please inspect your rifle before shooting. If there is no rifling present, you are likely in possession of a training rifle. These training rifles were designed only for extremely low-pressure BLANKS, and firing live cartridges such as these WILL result in injury.

    5 out of 5 Excellent Cartridge for Whitetail Deer

    Isaac Gilligan (verified owner)

    I harvested an eight-point deer this year utilizing the Steinel 7.7 with excellent results. The entry hole was the width of the bullet, but the round exited the deer with great expansion. The shot was at a distance of 50 yards, and the exit hole was about 2″x3″. The lungs were both shredded and the top of the heart was hit as well. Shooting for groups, I was consistently able to achieve 1.5″ to 2.5″ groups at 100 yards. The recoil is pleasant. This is some of the most affordable 7.7x58mmJap on the market, and the quality speaks for itself.

    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.

    Steinel Ammo Co. (formerly 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.

    Just got model 99, didn’t know what to expect. With your 150 light recoil soft point rounds it shot awsome! Open sights and my 58 year old eyes ,shoot accurately at 100 yards. My arisaka has the best trigger of all my guns.

    5 out of 5 Vintage Arisaka 7.7mm rifle from WWII

    The XCaliber 7.7mm X 58 ammunition for my vintage Arisaka Type 99 is a 150gr. 2,310 FPS round that works perfectly in this rifle. I rely on XCaliber for quality ammunition that I can trust. I only use this rifle periodically for target shooting and it has special meaning to me since my Dad brought this rifle (along with a 6.5mm Arisaka Type 38) back from the Pacific after the War and it is important to me and my brothers that nothing damages these rifles. I only wish that XCaliber would produce the 6.5 rounds for my other Arisaka.

    Customer service was excellent, As a first time buyer on Steinel Ammo (XCaliber) they were quick and efficient in the processing of my documentation. The ordering process was also very user friendly and they responded in near real time to my email questions. The Ammo is of superior quality and caused no issues with my Type 99 (Mid war years model). Very satisfied with this product in both price and quality and will be purchasing more.

    5 out of 5 Surprisingly accurate

    Private

    I recently acquired an Arisaka Type 99 Short Rifle that was made in 1941 at Kokura Army Arsenal in Kyushu, Japan. Since I am not a handloader, I decided to give Steinel (XCaliber) 150 gr. ammo a try. I was pleasantly surprised that it is accurate without unforgiving recoil In comparison with other commercial ammo with 170 gr. bullet, I believe the manageable recoil aided the accuracy.

    Bought a box of this 7.7 to shoot my arisaka for the first time. It had been more than a year since I bought it but now was my first chance to shoot it. Let me tell you, this stuff shot like a dream. Hardly any kick from a larger caliber (thanks to the lower pressure load). Even after shooting 20 rounds through, I didn’t see a spec of residue from the burnt gunpowder left over. It burns very clean and loads extremely well into my rifle.

    This ammo is the best. Shot a 2 inch group at 100 yards. So incredible to make my type 99 talk again after what might have been 70 plus years of silence.

    SAC reponse: 4/16/18- very glad to hear of your experience! There are so many new and glamorous calibers out there now. It really is rewarding to throw some lead downrange from a gun and cartridge that saw its heyday nearly 8 decades ago. It’s also uniquely rewarding to handle and fire a weapon with so much history.

    Thanks for shooting with Steinel Ammo Co. (Xcaliber)

    My grandfather gifted me a type 99 arisaka that was brought back from wwii before he passed in 1991. The gun sat unused in a closet for at least fifty years. I finally had the chance to clean and inspect the rifle, which is an early production model made at the naguya arsenal. The bore and mechanicals were still in great shape so I decided to test it out. Xcaliber rounds worked flawlessly and I got nice groupings from 75 yards considering I wasn’t using a vice with standard peep sight. Thanks!

    5 out of 5 Japanese Arisaka from Iwo Jima

    Alex

    My grandfather brought a Japanese Arisaka back from Iwo Jima. It spent probably close to half a century rusting in the rafters of the garage until he passed. I’ve had it restored but the last time if was fired, it was pointing at US Marines. The lighter 7.7 load was perfect for testing out this old rifle at a reduced pressure to ensure that it functioned safely Many of the late war production models have been known to have issues with adequacy of the barrels. XCaliber ammo gave me a little peace of mind easing the rifle back into good working order. Fantastic performance that brought this family heirloom back to life. Can’t say enough.

    I SHOT THE JAPANESE RIFLE WITH 7.7 150 GRAIN BULLETS TO MINIMIZE ANY POTENTIAL ACCIDENTAL EXPLOSIONS FOR FIRST TIME USE IN 75 YEARS. THE AMMO WORKED FINE, NO CRACKS IN THE SHELL CASING.

    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.

    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.
