I would go with the 6.5 as being stronger. The extractor cut on the 7.7 goes all the way through the receiver ring and the 6.5 only about half way. The base of the bolt handle is used as a third lug on the 6.5 and the bolt lugs are bigger on the 6.5 Other than that not much difference. I have about 8-9 Arisakas left, but only one in 6.5 All the rest I rebarreled to other calibers for hunting.
