7.62x39 trickling back in but 22LR still out of existence.
#1
All I've wanted lately was to acquire some 22lr for plinking at a reasonable price. This ammo is still scarcer than hen's teeth. It does appear that 7.62x39 and some other popular calibers are starting to trickle back in at decent prices. As for the rumor mill, anybody here anything new as to why 22LR has disappeared off the face of the planet (at reasonable prices)?

Quote:“Take for example .22LR ammunition. The industry as a whole (all manufacturers combined) is setup to produce 4,200,000,000 (4.2 Billions) .22 LR annually. That is running all the machines, full capacity all the time, all manufacturers together.
There is NOTHING they can do to produce more.
That corresponds to 230,137 cartridge per State per day, which is 460 bricks of 500 .22lr per day per State. That means that if less than 50 people per day in each State are buying 10 bricks of .22, it is enough to dry up the entire supply as it is being manufactured.”

That is a sobering set of statistics...

We are getting boxes of remington thunderbolt up here. $2.19 for 50.

I'm starting to see .22 in local gun shops, around $8 for 100 rounds of CCI, limited to one or two boxes per customer depending on the shop. I'm not seeing anything in local Walmarts ammo cabinets except car radios and paintball gear. Looks like they're trying to get out of the business.

Compare 1000 rounds of .22 to 1000 rounds of - you name it.

People will suck up the .22 because it is still only $100 or so for 1000 rounds.

Other pistol or rifle is 3x, 4x, 5x or more. So the panic stricken aren't so quick to suck...or something like that.

The only .22 ammo I see at the Willow Grove Wal Mart are shot shells and .22 shorts. Dicks occassionally gets the Remington 555 tubs in but you have to be there as soon as the doors open that day when they get the shipment in. Tanner's has been getting .22LR ammo in at least every other week, but it's not a surplus of .22LR. I just got some 55 grain .223 remington UMC. It was 200 rounds for $90 + tax. Nothing to brag about, but not too expensive either.

There are several places in Montco that have .22 lr. I know Guns Inc. in Trappe has it in stock and In-Site Firearms has it in stock as well.

In other words, our fellow gun owners are messing up the supply for the others. At the shop I work, we have to limit each customer to 100 rounds. Despite numerous signs stating this policy, you still have the jerks who insist on buying more and requesting an exception: "I want a brick!"

So you don't sell any in bulk packs?

I always assumed that's what a "brick" was. I really have no clue though.

I don't think I've ever bought .22 ammo in a 50 rd box. It's crazy to spend that much on small quantities when it's so much less expensive to buy a "big box". (unless you're talking the super-accurate loads)
