TONS of .22 at Weavers store in Millheim, PA
#1
If anyone in central PA is looking for .22, Weavers store next to Burkholders in Millheim has a HUGE stash of it. Limit of 3 boxes per customer per day but they have 500 round count boxes of remington yellow jacket HP'S for 50 bucks. 5 boxes left as of this morning. They also have various 50 round boxes and 100 round boxes of all sorts of brands. Might be worth the trip for some if you're hard up. Get it while it lasts!

On another note they have just about every other caliber in stock as well Including .243 and 30-30 which are two that I've been having trouble finding.

Not much pistol ammo though, they only have a couple boxes of blazer .45ACP and that's it.

They're asking gouger prices, I'll pass. I'll also make note of it in case they have anything I may want in the future. Gouging is gouging. Free market allows someone to sell for what the market will bear but I see that as taking advantage of a bad situation rather than letting the market find it's own natural level. That sets the stage for ongoing inflated prices and it makes me wonder how many retailers or wholesalers are sitting on mountains of ammo in an effort to create an artificial shortage and sense of urgency for people to get what they can for whatever they have to pay for it now.

Yea. I think the yellow jacket ammo is a little high but even pre panic yellow jacket ammo was higher than standard grade from what I recall. Wound up finding a box of winchester white box .22 at the local walmart for the first time in over a year. Just by chance. Can't remember what I paid but I grabbed a box. I know it was less than 50. Haven't seen it since. Haven't seen much there at all though. Central PA is terrible for ammo. Has been for a long time now.Sad

Just to be sure there's no misunderstanding here, I'm glad you're letting everyone know where they can get some ammo if they're willing to pay the price. That's part of helping each other out. If dad gets Junior a .22 for his birthday but can't find any ammo for it, Junior will be terribly disappointed. If a club needs some ammo for training or some other club sanctioned event, here ya go. I just don't like the idea of keeping prices artificially inflated until everyone gets used to it and accepts it as the going rate. Several years ago, before B.H.O. announced his intention to "run for office" I was buying a brick every payday. I don't usually shop Wal-Mart but I'd stop in twice a month to buy at least 500 rounds of .22LR. I told my son to do the same, he thought I was nuts, (he didn't take my advice). The price then was less than $10.00/500 rounds. As the price started going up I started slowing down. When it got up to about $12.00/500 for the common stuff I stopped buying it. (That was still before the B.H.O. panic). When primers topped $20.00/thousand I thought "This is nuts" and I decided to wait until the prices got back to normal. Now I wish I would have kept buying both, as well as other reloading supplies and components, the prices will never be anywhere near what I considered "normal 6 or 7 years ago. I was only stocking up, I wish I would have gotten into a hoarding frame of mind. I wouldn't be selling for profit now but I'd be more comfortable about not running low in the near future. I find myself being stingy with my ammo now, there was a time when I'd think nothing of giving a box or 3 to a shooting buddy or a guy with a youngster at the range. (I still give some away occasionally but not as freely as I did in the past.)

Thanks for the info Gixxer. I guess that I could trade all my 22lr for a nice BMW right about now. Wink

No offense taken. I understand completely although waiting for the prices to come back down is probably futile. I wish I could shoot like I used to as well but I'll be damned if I will go out back and just waste ammo for the fun of it anymore. A couple function tests and accuracy checks is it for me anymore. It's almost, dare I say it, not fun to be a gun owner more than its a chore now. I'm trying to get into newer, less expensive shooting activities to try to have some fun at the least. Got into shooting archery and might get into air guns a little more. The way things are anymore I'm just holding on to what I have for fear of not having it at all someday. I want to be able to look back and say to my kids, "look, this is what we used to have, and don't tell anyone daddy has it" at the very least.

Times sure are changing, something has got to give soon though. The way the world is going currently it might not be long. Who knows though. Things are never as good as they "used to be" when it comes to anything, maybe we should take a better look at things and make the best of what we have because it's been my experience now that nothing lasts forever.

I was thinking of running over, until I saw it was yellow jackets, which my 10/22 hates. The fact that it's overpriced just explains why they have it.
