The Y16 is sort of a 110 cassette as the film plane is part of the cassette mechanism. Yashica made a film loader for this camera, so we know that the manufacturer designed the cassette to be reloaded.  This cassette has a reputation as one of the more difficult ones to reload , but if you practice on a scrap of film first you won't have any problem -- and you won't need a film loader either.  You start with the usual 18 to 20 inches of 16mm film (any type of perforation will work).  Since it is a daylight cassette, all of the reloading takes place in the dark, unlike with other cassettes.  This makes things much more difficult as you will discover.
