7.7 does appear to be semi-rimmed. I got tired of looking for ammo and got Norma brass and some bullets from Midway and reloaded my own. It is the same size bullet as the British .303

40 bucks a box thu came up when I searched on there for 7.7 jap.
I suggest rolling your own.

You can convert 8x57 (8mm mauser) to 7.7 Jap. I did it and it works fine.
Look up the exact procedure online since my memory ain't that great but if I remember correctly all you have to do is neck the case down then fire form using very low power loads. I can't remember any trimming involved but please research this more before trying!
Oh, it is not semi-rimmed of course but it still works.
Editted to add;
I think Grafs might carry new production 7.7 Jap, I know they carry the brass and dies.
