Thanks, I am not familiar with Buffalo Arms. Most of the time I go through MidwayUSA.
My dad is good friends with the owner and the business is up in Sandpoint, ID. I've shot with the owner in BPCR matches and he's a great guy.

I ordered 50 .257 cases from him today, then called my dad to ask about any old scopes he might have laying around and he said to cancel the order. He said he's got hundreds of cases for .257 Roberts and doesn't even own one. So I'll be going over to his place tomorrow to get some brass and bullets.

Buffalo Arms is owned by Dave Gullo, one of the best BPCR shooters in the world. His business caters to the black powder and BPCR shooters mostly, although some items he sells could be used for other shooting.

When I started reloading for .308 in the middle of the pandemic panic, I found brass and bullets on his website when it was gone everywhere else.

Dave is a great guy. I've shot with him at the Arizona State BPCR Championship.

Drove to town today and found two boxes of Hornady .257 Roberts +P 117 grain on the shelf. Bit spendy at $35 a box, but I still grabbed one.

A lot of 6.5 posts in here so I'll add the 6.5X57
I have a 1939 Mannlicher Schoenauer that was made in Austria but since mine was made in 39 it says "Made in Germay" Germany invaded Austria in 36 and made them put Germany on the "Made in" things.

Double set trigger and when set, it doesnt take a lot to set it off..

I found 10 boxes of Prvi Partizan 6.5X57 and bought quite a few hundred Hornady and Sierra bullets to reload
