Nosler is in stock at both Midway and Grafs:

I've been trying to find any 257 roberts brass for well over a year. I sent a mauser off to get built into a 257 right before the panic all started. Gunnies had loads of 257 Bob brass, as did everywhere online at that point. I only picked up one 50-case bag thinking that I'd be able to get brass whenever I need it. Fast forward 4 months when I got the rifle back. I couldn't find any brass anywhere. I finally picked up a second 50-pack off gunbroker, but paid way, way too much for it. The nosler stuff isn't cheap, but it's usually very good brass.

The 257 Roberts is a neat cartridge. I have a 25-06 that a friend gave me years ago that has similar ballistics. I think the 257 Roberts is a little more efficient and can run in a short action which is always good in my book. 8)

I really like mine. It's built on a standard length mauser action. I've found a load with 115 gr Nosler BTs and H100V that shoots at just a hair over 3000 fps and shoots very accurately as well. The only issue is that the throat is so short that the bullets are pushed back well into the powder space. I've given some serious thought to having it throated.

I might have a handful of .257 kicking around. If I find it, you are free to come get it. :D

ETA: Sorry, nevermind. Looks like I already gave it away. It was less than 20 pcs.
Let not my last thought be “ If only I had my gun ”;
and Lord if today is truly the day that You call me home,
let me die in a pile of empty brass.
