Redding, RCBS, Hornady, Forester, Wilson are some I know make dies for it. I run the Redding neck bushing FL dies for my x47.
Type 01 and Type 06 FFL

Can you form the brass or do you have to buy it new/loaded?

I use forester ultra dies.

You can't form x47 due to the small primer. I guess you could start from lapua small primer 308 brass, but that seems like huge waste of time.

X47 brass is about as good as it gets. That stuff is strong and seemingly lasts forever.

Anneal them after ever 4-5 times fired and it will last forever.
