    My local Academy got some 22lr in this morning. I noticed that Remington 525 count boxes have increased in price from $19.99 to $21.99. Federal 325 count automatch increased in price from $15.99 to $17.99. Thats on top of the $20 increase on CCI 1600 count can.

    I would be all grins if I found a 1600 round ammo can at Academy.

    I was expecting some this morning but all they go was the 525 count Remington and the 325 count Federal Automatch. Maybe Wednesday if the pattern holds.

    True but it kinda guts the hope of many that prices will return to pre crises levels as prices continue to increase.

    I'd wait a couple months before thinking this is the case. I wouldn't say hope is "gutted" yet.

    Do we really need a new thread everytime someone finds a box of ammo someplace?

    I don't mean to be rude but half the current topics seem to be one of two themes

    #1: Wow I just found a box of ammo at store X!!! The shortage must be over!!!

    or

    #2: Why isn't there any ammo at my LGS? WHEN WILL THE SHORTAGE END???

    It's driving me crazy. Can we talk about something else for a while?

    Actually, David, I appreciate knowing when and where I might be able to get some.

    There is no requirement that you actually read each post that has "ammo" (or any other word) in the thread title.

    I understand, but in most cases these theards do not actually tell you where the store that has ammo in stock is located. Don't see how this helps anybody.

    True. Nobody is holding a gun to my head and saying "you must read all these threads". But this is the interent, if I can't complain and whine about stuff here, then where?

    Yep I saw CCI Stinger .22s at Academy Sports today to. $5.99 or so.

    Stop paying the scalpers and wait a bit gang, times are a-changing.

    Glad to see bulk prices going back down to reasonable best I've seen so far are 50 rd boxes of brands I've barely heard of for $6.

    edit: At the cabelas in Hazelwood MO for my fellow missourians
