$65 for brick of goldens and $85 for Eliy target ammo. I know I was robbed, but first I have had in year and a half other than a random box of cruddy ammo.

$26 for a pack of 550 Federal bulk hp at Wally World. Got lucky and they were stocking while I was looking.

All thunderbolts are not created equal. I have shot some lots that were scary accurate and no misfires. You just never know.

Got 1000 rounds at Cabelas today for $62 shipped. Best I've done in over a year.

PSA had bricks of 500 rnd Blazer for $50 at their store 5 minutes from my office.
Saw it at lunch and thought -I'm not paying 10 cents a round for .22!

Thought about it a couple of hours then decided- this is the new reality-
So I went back and ALL gone, and this was with a ONE box limit per day per customer.


Fortunately I have quite a bit on hand, but I'm contemplating retiring soon and my usage will go WAY up if that happens, since I'd actually have time to shoot all I'd like.

Stopped by the local Wal-Mart yesterday and they had 9 boxes (50 round) of Blazer .22 at $2.47 each on the shelf. First time I've seen any .22 in months.

I must admit that I bought 3 boxes, since my stash of .22 (acquired over the last 40 years, admittedly mostly since 2008) recently dropped to just below 50,000 rounds. Am I a hoarder now?

I have plenty.

Stopped at an LGS yesterday and the guy said they put it out for over $80 a brick and sell it as soon as it hits the shelf.

That's insane. I saw bricks of Blazer at Palmetto State in Greenville sit on the shelf for 4 days at $49.99

I think the basements are getting full, or people are starting to wise-up.

Depends on how much you shoot - 50K rounds would last me several lifetimes. If that's the case for you, yes buying stuff you will never need could qualify as hoarding, but I'd say have at it if it makes you happy.

I actually saw some .22 LR at my local WalMart a few days ago - first time since early 2013. It was Federal match, just a few boxes & a little high priced. I passed because I really do not need any more than I already have. I also saw some Federal Champion 9mm FMJ - also the first sighting of inexpensive 9mm in this particular store since the first of last year. It was priced close to pre panic levels ( $14 I think). This particular store has had absolutely no .22 or 9 mm for the last 14-15 months, so Perhaps this means the shortage is finally easing.

Agreed. Something seems to have changed, or at the very least, QC has gone down hill on the last few batches of Winchester 333/555 I have picked up. The last few wont cycle in Ruger MKIII, SR22, Browning or 10/22. Fail 8 out of 10 rds. Bad batch. I'll use them in my bolt 22, but I'm sure the accuracy is probably going to be awful.

It depends on your shooting habits. If it was me, I probably shoot 1000-2000 rounds of .22LR a year. That would give me 26-55 years of shooting so (again) if it was me, yes, I would call that hoarding. If on the other hand you are a high volume plinker or are seriously into competative shooting then that 50K of ammo stops looking like a lifetime supply and starts looking more like a reasonable stash.

I buy everything I can find if it's less than about $.08/round and up to $.10/round for mini-mags.
This. Its taken dilligence and self control, but I've managed to stick to these limits and still purchase approximatly 2000 rounds in the last 12 months of CCI, Federal and Winchester rimfire ammo.

Last time I bought any .22LR was about two summers ago; Winchester Wildcats for $23/brick of 500. They were marked at $30, but my LGS sold them at a quantity discount. Even back then, that was too good to pass up. I cannot imagine having to pay $80/brick.

How do you all get so much 22 ammo and do you just get lucky in finding Walmart 22 ammo?

The last 20k rounds of 22 I have bought have been online. The first 22 I ever bought online was December of 2012 when the panic started and I hit up an online retailer for 10k rounds at one pop. $18 per brick. Since then it has pretty much been all from Cabela's. I actually have 2k rounds on the way from them next week. I signed up for the Wikiarms alerts and I pull the trigger right away using my phone so I get it within 5 minutes. If you wait til you get to a computer it is all gone. Mostly Winchester and Remington but some Blazer as well. All of this will work fine for mag dumps and shooting paper at 50 yards. I know a lot of people hate Remington 22 ammo and I agree it isn't top of the line but it tends to go bang MOST of the time. We did a good bit of shooting this past weekend and have the weekend lined up with several new shooters coming out. Spring is when we will shoot a LOT of ammo.

Getting 22 these days is lots of visiting wal-mart and other local carriers, and having a good friend network. At least that's the way it works for me.
I sort of shifted some of the grocery shopping to wallyworld to give me the excuse to check the ammo isle.

In the end I know I've wasted more gas than it's probably been worth - but considering how darn cold it's been up here - we need all the global warming emissions we can get!

How Much?

Zero. I'm a year and 1/2 holdout, until availability and prices for the better, and I'm doing just fine.

More of the same by others might get results. But, that's a long story, much debated over the past two years.
