What in the world?  I can't find .22lr at Wal-Mart, BPS, Cabela's, Cheaper Than Dirt, or a couple of other online ammo suppliers.  Does anyone know of a web site that I can fine non-match grade ammunition?  I'd be much obliged.

 

We have 5 weeks of squirrel season left, and I don't have enough but for about two weeks.  If I've got to start hunting with the shotgun I'm going to go broke!

I spent several hours searching the web last weekend for any quantity larger than 50rds.  Finally found some at CTD, package arrived today.  Checked today and they are now out, and no longer ship here to NY.   Squeaked that one in just in time.

I was looking yesterday and I was surprised that 22lr was all gone. None of my local suppliers here in MI have any and they have no clue when it will be coming either. Same response from all, suppliers are empty and shipments are only a box here and there. Seems to be a supply and demand problem.
Sitting on the lake in the boat is peaceful enough, catching fish is just a bonus.

The reason you can't find any 22lr is because they have conversion kits for the AR-15's to turn them into 22lr's.  It was explained to me yesterday from a friend of mine that there are many kits that will convert multiple guns.  SO I would assume that is the reason. 

 

At the gun show a few weeks ago .223 rounds were going for approximately 1.00 per round.  Before this fiasco started a box of 1,000 rounds ran about 350 to 400 bucks.  It is nuts!


God grant that I may fish until my diying day;
And when at last I come to rest, I'll then most humbly pray;
When in His landing net I lie in final sleep;
That in His mercy I'll be judged as good enough to keep! -Homer Circle

No, an employee snagged the only two cases that came off the truck, and I just happened to see him paying for it.  I offered to buy a brick from him, and he told me to meet him in the parking lot so he wouldn't get in trouble with his bosses.  I followed him to the parking lot at he sold me two bricks.  Let the squirrel hunting continue!!!

I heard on the radio that you could get a 525 rd box for $70. I think the last one I bought at walmart was around $15.

  That's about the average on GunBroker right now, $60 to $85+.

I just picked up 3 boxes of mini mag for $23 I usually don't buy from Walmart but they are the only ones who had any. It wasn't even on the shelf I seen a plain cardboard box behind the counter and seen cci on it and knew it was either for a .22 or .17hmr so I asked and bought my limit of 3 boxes it will last me a while till I find a brick of ammo

Bass Pro in Auburn had like 3 boxes of pest rounds, that was it!  I have half a brick left and I am scrambling now.  This just sucks.  Something is fishy, seems a little too much like the government is regulating the release of them.  hmmmmmmmmmmm

My father in law pointed this out the other day...

Remington, cci, federal ect arnt the only ones who make ammo and bullets. These companies I'm hearing are saying they arnt making more, behind, what have it but what about wolf or Tula or bear ammo all the Russian manufactures of Ammo I'd be flooding the market if I was them in this situation they can boost production and have nothing to loose they can sell anywhere.
