Yep....I can buy a bag of 100 same lot matching headstamp .270 Win brass for $25. And a box of 20 .257 Wby brass will cost you near $75.00.
I bought a bunch of factory .257 Wby ammo when I bought my rifle new, so I have a nice stockpile of it. If you don't want to spend a metric crap-ton of money on factory ammo or brass, don't get a .257 Wby.
