6.5 X 257 Roberts

I have an old Japanese Rifle that has been converted to a 6.5 X 257 Roberts and I am in need of some ammunition for the gun. I don't reload so I am looking for a source for these cartridges. Can anyone help me on this?

Become a reloader is the only way to get ammo for your rifle.

Sounds like a 6.5x57 mauser. Not sure if you'll be able to get RWS ammo.

Seem to remember seeing 6.5x257R ammo being sold on either Gunbroker.com or auctionarms.com in the past. Might check there.
