    Go to Ebay and make a custom search for dies you are looking for. I do that for specific molds or rifle components when I'm looking for new or used items. I get an email once a day on my searches if a new item is ever listed that meets my search...

    The Type 99s are chambered in 7.7x58 (basically .31 caliber like an Lee-Enfield or Mosin-Nagant) and is comparable to 30-06 or 308Win in effectiveness. For reloading, its easier to load for than the Type 38s as you can use trimmed down and reformed...
