I would post this in the classified section. I have a 243 WSSM so I feel your pain. You may try gunbroker.com
They will have some, but you will pay top dollar

If you have brass, I can load it. I have shooters send me their brass to reload the WSSM calibers. New brass is not available.

Probably this isn't what you really want to do, but I assume the barrel could be set back and re chambered. If so, what caliber would be the logical choice? But...I just remembered the bolt face isn't the right size for most calibers I could think of. Surely other folks have run into this same problem. I wonder what they went to, caliber wise. Be a shame to have to just park the rifle.

I don't think you could rechamber it. The WSSM case is .555" wide at the base. Even your belted magnums are smaller in diameter. If you went far enough out to get new rifling on a factory barrel, then you will lose the main area of the barrel to chamber with.

I share y'all's pain with this ammo / brass situation. We totally bought into the WSSM platform, owning one each of the 223 and 243, and 2 of the 25. I really like the way they shoot, and how the featherweights make light handy little rifles. We were left high and dry by Winchester on this whole deal since they were basically the sole source of brass production, and I'm really disappointed that they have chosen not to continue to support it with at least some new brass. I would think they could at least do some occasional runs with prices at $2 a piece for new brass!

There is some ammo on gunbroker, but the price is hard to take.

Ya'll still looking. I see some from time to time...Cabellas 6 months ago was most recent.

Got the same problem, my son got the .25 wssm as a gift and been stocking up for the long term. Figure will eventually have to reload to keep it in ammo. Nice shooting rifle though.
