Posts: 1,753 Graf and Sons say they have it, Weatherby and Nosler. Check loading manuals for loading data.
Ouch, the dreaded "M-1 thumb", you just know it will happen eventually, so why not do it now and get it over with??

Listed on Hodgdon's site as .257 Weatherby Magnum.
Midway shows No$ler, of all places, as being the least expensive at $67.99 per 50. Followed by Norma at $34.49 per 20($154.99 per 100). Hornady is on out of stock, no back order.
Spelling and grammar count!

"Need load data for this caliber. Also need Brass."

Your loading manual doesn't have data for the Wby????

I think I'm using 7828SSC in mine. Also have some old production AA870(0). Would not expect top performance from any powder faster than 4831.

Re: cases
If you can find the Norma made Wby ammo (around $30-35 a box), you get good cases and it's already loaded for the same cost as Wby/Nosler brass.

I have read and now seen 7mm rem brass turned into 257 Weatherby by just running them through the die with lots of lube.

The guy I saw at the range with one said it was common practice.

Just a thought if you are short on brass.
10mm and 357sig, the best things to come along since the 38 super!
