I've seen .22's a couple of places recently. Didn't buy any 'cause I didn't need any. I think it's gonna loosen up pretty soon. Eventually you run out of people with more money than sense.

I believe that's about $0.09 although I still think that is high. But when you don't have any and you want some.... there you go.

I was at my local BPS last week, but could only score two fifty-round boxes of the Federal Champion stuff (they had more, but were limiting purchases.)

But, they had scads of .32ACP and .380ACP, the former of which I'd been keeping an eye out for. I bought two boxes of that and one of the .380 (I have a couple hundred rounds of .380 already, and don't shoot it much.)

$45/500 = $.09/rd.

$45/555 = $.08/rd.

Still too damn much!

yes i am finally starting to see 22lr coming back but the ammo hoarder are still out there bright and early in my area. I just don't have that kind of time nor desperation to be chasing after. it's usually gone like when i get there. all the bulk stuff was gone so i settled for some cci mini mags. even those i have not seen for a year. i was surprised walmart changed their 3 box rule to only 22lr. the shelves are well stocked too.

I was at a gun show last weekend. Ammo hoarders looked pretty disappointed that their $80 bricks were not selling. Lol...

On another note, I was at Dick's yesterday, bought a 555 brick of winchester for $30 plus tax.

Bad part: about halfway to my car, bag broke, box split open, several hundreds rounds of my precious little gold spilled out all over the parking lot. Cars honking at me, I didn't care, I picked up every last one. Double bag your ammo people!!!!

Sadly I'm retiring my Jennings J-22 and even more so my wife's Ruger Mark I, that is one fun gun to shoot. But I'll be damned if I'm going to pay over 15 cents for a bullet that should be a nickel. I'll light load my 38 for my wife and load up 9mm for her since that's her carry gun. 10 cents is my max price level. I see them going for 17 cents now.

The local Walmart in town (Bryan, Ohio) had .22mag on the shelf today (still a 3 box limit)
That's the first time in 15 months I've seen .22 of any kind on the shelf there.

Most all other calibers were stocked. I loaded up on TulAmmo .223 @ $5.48 a box

I have a thread about ATK offering youth shooting sport clubs .22 ammo at a decent price. After seeing this thread I hope the mods will allow it to hang out in the main part of the board for visibility sake. The price is 153.00 shipped with a max of 3 cases per club.

I guess the reason I am posting in here is to point out the fact that supplies should start freeing up. ATK suspended all support to the youth programs last year. This program is very limited compared to years past, but at least they are offering something. I think it is good news for everyone else as well.

I supported the 4-H club out of my personal stash last year, I am thankful I don't have to do it again this year.

The local YMCA camp had to go to air guns last summer. Hopefully they can get some .22 this year.

Sounds like a good project to get involved in, at a local level.

Walkalong, did you see this thread? There is .22 available to youth groups. It ends on the 19th though.

.22LR Thread Continuation

Mr. Moderator (Walkalong):
I suggest this thread not be closed for a long time, and let it continue, to discourage several new threads on the same subject from developing.
Sometimes (or oftentimes) threads "have" to be closed. This is just a suggestion.

Well Praise the Lord I went into my Wal-Mart today and the ammo cabinet was filled and they had plenty of 22. I bought 450 rounds.

Could you tell us the prices for the .22LR ammo?

Did you get the .22 ammo before or after you got the H&R 20 gauge?

Gun Master - I'm not Deltaboy, but here are some prices I noticed.

The local Walmart had Federal brand bulk packs in a few days ago (the sporting goods manager said people were lined up waiting for it - and I was there a few hours after that for something unrelated), but the price on it was $23.97 if memory serves correctly. A few weeks ago they had 100 rd. packages of CCI Mini Mag 36 gr. HP for $7.47 - I was lucky to get two of those.

The local Gander mountain has had .22 ammo in a few different times in the last few weeks and the Federal Champion .22 50 rd. package was $2.49, 100 rd. mini mags were $7.99 a package, some Federal ultra match (orange colored box) 50 rd. pack was $14.99, cci pistol match (50 rd.) was $10.99 (IIRC). There were also some Remington thunderbolts - but I didn't price those (I have some pics where prices are visible from 2/25 and I took some pics on Tuesday that I can post showing their prices from then if you would like. Gander mountain here is limiting to 200 rds. (or if bulk packs come in - 1 bulk pack). Locally, Walmart is still limiting .22 to 3 boxes.

Online AIM had some .22 about a 1 1/2 weeks ago, some match ammo from Switzerland or Germany. It was selling for $8.95 for 50 rds. It lasted on their site about 24 hours.

Thanks, sniper69. Looks like the prices are all over the place. Some are high, and some are low, and you have to consider the S&H for online, in the price.

I knew our local Walmart had some Federal 550 arrive yesterday, so I paid 'em a visit this morning, more to see what was going on instead of getting ammo (but I did get my 3 boxes of 550).

550 was all I was checking on, but they rolled out:
1. 1 case (10 boxes) Federal 550 ($23.97)
2. Winchester 333
3. Remington 225

The ammo flipper was there - I'm driving him to get there earlier and earlier (main reason I'm showing up) - he got on the phone and his wife, his buddies, and their wives arrived quickly!

Apparently he's buddies with numerous Walmart employees, and calls the store @ 9pm the night before to see if ammo has arrived.
He did wander over and try to pick my brain, but I didn't tell.
He apparently knew they had ammo in, but didn't know what.
Apparently he's been checking up on me (as I have on him) - he asked me what they got in last night, 'cuz I know you know!

I told him I knew they got some Federal 550s, but would not tell him how I keep up with arrivals.

Left the local gun shop this evening - I checked out his unpacked ammo, which he won't stock 'til tomorrow.
He had 3 cases (30 cans) of the Federal 325-rd. Nitrogen Sealed cans and 1 case of Federal Match ammo. Don't know his prices, but I may pay him a visit tomorrow and pick up a can (or more?) of the nitrogen packed Federals, assuming he has a decent price on 'em.

Well, the Walmart and Dick's that I routinely check didn't have anything today. Maybe next week!

Good news is that I'm able to spread the wealth among friends who aren't fortunate enough to have the time to check these places out like me. One of the advantages to working second or third shift is I can show up at these places early in the morning on Friday.

For those who haven't done so, you really need to quit trying to hunt down .22 LR all by yourself. Network with some friends and family who can help keep an eye out for it and maybe pick up a box here and there to have on hand for those in your circle.

I did some simple math (remembering, really)

Since December of 2012 I have

Sold 12,000 rounds of .22lr
Purchased 7,000 rounds of .22lr (5k came from the CMP)

Lowest I've sold at is $0.10 per round (bulk). Most I've paid is $0.08 per round (CCI mini mags).

Gun show last weekend only had one vendor selling .22lr. Asking price was $80 for 550 Federal bulk.

This has been a status report.

Stopped by an LGS on the way home yesterday. While I was there, a guy bought the single brick of Remington Thunderbolt .22LR on the shelf. After the purchaser left, they put out another brick. Pretty smart, I thought. The price was $30.
