The irradiation capsule 74M-52J was irradiated during total 136 cycles at reactor core of JMTR and the maximum neutron dose reached on 3.9$$times$$10$$^{26}$$n/m$$^{2}$$ at the capsule outer-tube made of a type 304 stainless steel. In order to produce mechanical test specimens from the outer tube, a punching technique was developed as a simple remote-handling method in a hot-cell. From comparison between the punching and the mechanical cutting methods, it was clarified that the punching technique was applicable to practical use. Moreover, an evaluation test of mechanical properties using specimens sampled from the 74M-52 was performed in-water high temperature condition, less than 288$$^{circ}$$C. The result shows that the residual elongation is 18% at 150$$^{circ}$$C and 13% at 288$$^{circ}$$C. It was confirmed that the type 304 stainless steel irradiated up to such high dose shows enough ductility.
