You can source some from me. its proper headstamped stuff, not resized 7x57 or whatever. I used to have a .257, but its long gone now.

Thanks for the offer CH however i contacted an importer who put me onto where the last 100 cases were sold to and as luck would have it they hadn't sold them all.

Sold it to a Gwyn Thurlow, CEO of the NZDA. In Wellington now.

I just never seemed to use it much.

Necked down 7 x 57 brass worked for me in my two .257s, but I have since got Winchester .257 brass, and it seems okay.  The 7 x 57 brass was straighter though - it was Lapua!
