I have reformed 1977 HXP so at least I know 77 HXP head stamp is a "warning" for me.
I keep that brass in its own special box. i do not shoot the arisaka's often so the brass/amo does not end up in general population all to easy.

Having resized 3006 to 7.7 Japanese, I find the results far easier and cases last longer if I anneal the necks before I do this case forming from 3006 to 7.7 Japanese.

You simply must have a brass and ammo management procedure to preclude your reformed 3006 to 7.7 Japanese cases once loaded, getting mixed into your 3006 ammo supply. The same separation and marking of 7.7 / .303 bullets ..kept well away from your 7.62/.308 bullets.

Have a system, have procedures in place. Nothing to fear here...just organize and take special care.

Someone's reloading practices would have to be very poor get a 7.7 round mixed into a batch of 30-06. I reload in batches and package and store my ammunition by caliber, but maybe there are some people who dump all their ammo in a pile on the floor and sort it by headstamp.
