So, Really, Where is the .22 Rimfire Ammo?
So, Really, Where is the .22 Rimfire Ammo?

It happens daily. Still. I get calls and e-mails asking where all the ammo is. Except it is not “all” ammo anymore. For the record, there is no conspiracy. There is no secret government contract. It’s not Bloomberg or Soros (even though their actions and pronouncements often increase demand. Ironic, huh?).

The major domestic ammunition makers have been producing more ammunition than ever. They are all up in terms of total production—double, and in some areas, triple-digit increases. They are all running three shifts. And when it comes to center-fire cartridges, at least of three of the big makers are caught up and beginning to load either new products, line extensions or specialty loads. Previously, lower-demand chambering or atypical bullet weights or styles were shelved due the time it took to change over the tooling. Now, on the center-fire side, anyway, the manufacturers can start to really catch up to demand and get to cartridge producing they have not loaded in two years.

I saw 9 bricks on the shelf at Mallin's, in Buck, this afternoon. 3 different types of a brand I've not seen before, at. $65+, but it was on the shelf .

Target Master near me had cases of 4000 for $285 the other week.
Everytime we look the other way when someone else loses rights we disagree with, we make it easier to lose the rights we support.

A mere $35 per 500 in bulk. I wonder if this is a product of their Ammo Buy-Back Program ™.

Nothing against you Troll, but I have a seething, white-hot, irrational hatred of that place.
Ammunition, it's the new lead bullion. Buy it cheap and stack it deep.
It's at Tanners. All of it.

No seriously, they have over half a million rounds.
We're our own worse enemies....that is all.
