    Graf & Sons has ammo for a decent price, although I haven't used that brand. https://www.grafs.com/retail/catalog...categoryId/239 $25 seems to be the best price I see. Norma is too proud of their product at $55. Gun shows might be an alternative, but 7.7 Jap has been getting hard to come by.

    I cant get a very good picture of the mum on the model 99 with my crappy camera. After viewing pics on line i will say that after blasting it and the etching caused by the parkerizing, i would correct myself to say maybe 40 to 50 percent. Its going to stay in a gun cabinet with the other ones as soon as i can find one, and will probably never be shot, so thats all good. Roger

    No problem. Just don't see one with an intact mum too often.

    I know what you mean. Im not much on these rifles. After seeing the mums on the net of what i would consider new rifles, i was very impressed. Im not a collector, but would love to have one in new condition. Roger.
