RE: Actually there were three different japanese 7.7mm rounds

Yes, the origin of the 7.7x58 is apparently the parent machine gun round.
Not familiar with the rimmed version! What was that used in or for?
And yes, the 303 was probably the 'target' ballistics to match while the entire arms making planet standardized on the 1898 Mauser Action in one form or another. Even the US Springfield Rifle, IIRC.

Several rifles blew up in testers faces but it would appear they were UN hardened drill rifles never meand for a round but a 'blank' of lower pressure.

End of war weapons of this type should not be fired unless FIRST checked by a gunsmith. Hardness of metal should be part of the inspection.

Any way you slice it, this is a medium bore rifle which may not be the best choice for the larger and meaner pigs. Maybe 7mm mag? The heavier bullets, like 165 or 175 grain REALLY pack a lot of energy. Bacon, anyone?
