Ballast for 250W Iwasaki Metal Halide

I'm trying to make my own high Intensity lighting. I want to run a 250W Iwasaki Metal Halide bulb. Anyone know of a ballast that will work with this bulb other than Advance 71A3572 or 71A3802-600?

I'm not a salty, but I would try looking at or . These folks seem to have just about anything that the aquarist may want. You may also want to check manufactureres like Sylvania, Lithonia, and others.

I like my IceCap ballasts the best of all I've owned. Besides that I'd look into Sunlight Supply Bluewave ballasts. They actually push a little harder, shorter bulb life but about 15-20% more par.
