    22 LR Ammo Availability

    Is anyone finding reasonable priced 22 ammo? The only stuff I can find is about 17 to 18 cents a round!

    The disappearance of 22 ammo is one of the most puzzling things ive ever seen. We can put man on the moon but not 22 ammo on the shelf. Where theres demand there should be money to be made. I don't understand why ammo companies cant expand and ramp up production and make billions. Puzzling...

    Its the government and hoarders causing the issue with supply. Government is on a large buying spree and panicked buyers are picking it up even if they dont need it . Hoping that in the next year or so the new equipment is in place to add more production to the ammo companies.

    A lot of them were leary of ramping up and buying to much equipment for fear of ot just being a short rush. So that put them way behind on catching up

    3 weeks ago our local Rifle/Pistol Club (I'm a Director) held our annual gun show. It is at the Co Fairgrounds and was the biggest ever as we have expanded it and is now called Gun Show & Sportsman's Expo. Record attendance and vendors and the club cleared over $15 grand. I had a table and spent 3 days there. Lots of vendors had .22 ammo and lots took most of it home. Way too expensive was the reason. CCI box of 100/ $22.00 and most was over $100 per brick.

    I personally think the supply is getting better and will continue to as long as the price stays high. IMHO hoarders are the reason for most of the .22 ammo situation.

    I think the problem is they realize that once the shelves are full people will quit buying it so fast. Right now people buy it fast for fear they won't be able to get it in the future.

    I thing you are exactly right! Also even tho we bitch how expensive it is, .22 rimfire is really still pretty cheap compared to other ammo and you can store lots of it because of its size.

    Somebody's getting their hands on it. A quick search on GB pulled up over 1000 auctions. However, everyone and their dog wants top dollar for it.

    I've been able to get my hands on a few bricks recently for $30-35 per brick depending on what brand. Limit of 1 or 2 per customer still. Not the good quality stuff put it still works great for plinking with the kids.
