    Picked up three 525 count boxes of Remington Golden Bullet .22LR today from a local guy liquidating his stockpile. $30 a box. I figured under six cents per round was pretty good given current scarcity. I'm happy.

    I finally scored a single brick of CCI Blazer .22LR for sale locally yesterday. The first .22LR I've seen in a local store in EIGHT months. $50 for a brick. Oh well.

    Blazer is pretty good. My range almost always have Blazer by 50 box and Gemtech subsonic by box or brick. The bricks are $50.

    How much are you paying for 22lr ammo when you find it?

    I had been out of luck finding 22lr for about six months (though I do have a modest stash) until I joined a new range and found they sell 2 boxes of 50 per visit-CCI Standard, blazer, federal and Gemtech. They range from $4-6 per box. They also allow purchase of bricks of Gemtech subsonic for $50. I have loaded upon the subsonic, as I recently got a suppressor. I pick up a small box every now and then when I plan to shoot 22lr there. I wish I could land 2-3 bricks of ammo at walmart again for like $28-30 but no luck lately.

    I was finding some .22 for a while but now I haven't seen any in months. Maybe it's just because I didn't like the prices so I quit looking. I have a decent stash so I'm hoping to wait things out. I have about 10,000 rounds I guess. It's really not that much considering how much I used to shoot. But I can go out and shoot 30 rounds or so fairly often and not worry too much. I've been able to find that much so I haven't really lost any ground I guess. But again I haven't found a lot the last couple of months.

    I've sold more than I've bought.

    I paid barely above the old prices for CCI Mini Mags and Standard Velocity from Gander Mountain awhile back (like, $.09 per round maybe? I don't remember really), I paid $0.045 per round for one box of Federal bulk at Walmart (only time I've seen .22lr at Walmart since 2012), and I paid whatever price the CMP was charging about a year ago for 5k of the Aguila gold eagle stuff.

    Bought 21,000 rounds for just under $800

    I have another 15,000 rounds coming any day now for $583 or so.

    I picked up forty of the 525 count bricks of Federal 745 for just under $800.

    I should be getting about 15,000 rounds of Federal 510 soon and that stuff cost me well under $600.

    It has been hard to find.


    I'm not sure why, but I hear it's because some people are gluttonous.

    Good for you. Now can you shoot any? I have to force myself to dig out my 10-22 and a couple of hicap mags and make some pretty music. It has been a long time. Thanks for the post.

    I'm up visiting my son in Northern Illinois. Walked into Wal-Mart and they had Blazers on the shelf. Didn't have a price on it, so I'm not sure what they were charging. Don't have a magical Illinois foid card so I can't buy ammo. Was nice to see it though.

    My LGS had Federal 525 packs for $23.99. A pallet load sold out in a day

    They had a pallet of Remington Std Velocity bricks yesterday for $39.99...I'll reckon they sold out as well

    That is the ballpark of "bribed the Walmart employees" pricing

    I don't look and I don't care. I refuse to fuel the feeding frenzy more than it already is.

    I was chatting with a fellow at the range last week who was tickled to death about buying a brick for $75.....and didn't even own a .22. Talk about ridiculous.

    Well lets see if I can remember . Winchester 333 count @ $18, 555 @ $24, remington 525 @ $21.99, remington subsonic @ $6.99/100, mimi mags can't be had at any price because no one is getting any and the remington 1400 count buckets are $64.99.

    Our local store KTP had bricks for $62 -$69 depending on velocity.
    They also had buckets of remingtons with 1400 rnds for $79.
    Didn't like the price, but picked up a bucket anyway. That was 2 weeks ago.
    Won't pay $60 for a brick unless that becomes the norm over the next few years.

    The LGS I frequent for reloading supplies has cci stingers for 8.99$
    I'd imagine that's pretty high, I've never been in the market so I have no idea.

    (no 22s n my collection..well, i guess you cant really call it a collection if you dont have any 22s)

    I can see this is going turn into a "profiteering it great" post with bragging on how many rounds they have while some have none because they're sucking them all up. I also find it funny how those individuals can make sarcastic remarks, but when anyone else posts something to the contrary, it's not long and the post gets pulled or the tread gets locked. It's kind of getting to be the norm.

    To the OP, I generally do not make a living out of scrounging them up, but I was in Walmart a few weeks ago and bought a 325 pack for just shy of $11. I'll use my Paco Kelly tool on them to change the nose and diameter a tad. It turns the cheap ammo into some pretty good shooting ammo.
