Great shooting 6.5 Japanese ammo

By Shoua X. on Mar 20, 2024
I've shot this Banner ammo through my Type 44, Type38 long and carbine rifles. They ran flawlessly in all those rifles. Glad to be able to shoot them again after supplies dried up for a while. Grouping was decent at 50 yards. Sadly, the cold weather is preventing any outdoor ranges from being used. Indoor ranges were all I've been able to try them at. Regardless, the Arisaka's were well feed and the results on the targets down range were decent. Highly recommend a purchase for some fun at the range.

6.5 ammo performed very well.

Really good!

By CRAIG P. on Nov 27, 2023
So far, I’ve only shot 30 rd of the 60 that I bought. And compared to some old mil-surp ammo my buddy had, this was very accurate. I will buy more!

Thankful I found this.

6.5x50 can be difficult to locate. I found Graf & Sons on the web and they have this ammunition from Bannerman. Once on the range, these cartridges performed beautifully! Moderate recoil and produce an excellent pattern out of an old rifle.

Great to have ammo for these old rifles!!

Well built cartridges at an average price. I have been looking for this for a while now, and was glad to see Graf's had it in stock. They preform flawlessly and are accurate.

6.5 Japanese ammo

By Erwin Ralph T. on Aug 31, 2023
I received in a reasonable amount of time. Ammo chambers correctly in my Japanese Arisaka. I am still in process of building rifle and don’t have any sighting means for rifle yet. So I have not shot any yet.

Thank you Graf’s!

By Loren H. on Jul 19, 2023
Hard to find and other options are very expensive. Great ammo and as usual, Graf’s has what I need. Grafs has been my first choice for years and will continue to be!

Decent Ammo

By Michael C. on Jul 13, 2023
Shot decently, with good accuracy for the platform. Price is high for what it is, but there aren't many choices in this caliber.

The 6.5x50 Japanese ammunition 156 grain shot very nicely in my Arisaka took a long time but was definitely worth the wait thanks for coming through Graf and sons.
