As far as I know no one has ever produced specific loading information for this caliber.

The people I know who reload for this use a combination of .257 and 6.5 Arisaka information.

The Arisaka action is extremely strong and well designed, and will take a LOT of abuse.

There is a documented account (I've seen the rifle and the bullets) of one being rechambered for .308 Winchester, but without having the bore increased to the proper diameter.

The action held, primers were heavily cratered, and the bullets were swaged through the bore into pencils.
