What is a good price then? At only .07/rd I thought it wasn't bad compared to .30/rd for 9mm

I was at Wal-Mart yesterday getting groceries and wandered by the gun counter and yup, out of .22LR and snake shot was the only thing that could be had in that caliber. Not a big deal since I've been stocking up since the King Willie days but replacing what I shoot is getting harder to do. I still remember the ex complaining about all the cans of ammo, lead ingots, reloading supplies and cans of empty brass of how it was heavy to move when we would PCS, took up so much space and how it was "money just sitting there" and what not. Damn glad I managed to ditch the b*t*h and keep my guns and shooting supplies!

You are telling your age.


Like going in the little corner grocery store and buying ten 22Longs.
The store owner would sell you part of a box because only the rich kids could afford to buy a whole box of 22LR.

I didn't get CCI blazer, it's CCI SV lead nose. Just target stuff. I will assume blazer is probably better?

Ah, the good old days. I remember buying 500 round bricks of .22 on sale for $8.99.

I feel bad for those who are left in the cold right now with little/no ammo during all this craziness.

Realistically, it's going to take 6+ months for things to settle down.

I recommend to everyone to have a minimum of 1 year's worth of ammo on hand based on your annual usage.

I remember those days also. And the rounds were nicely divided into handy little 50 round boxes instead of loose in the bigger box. Seemed a bit easier to grab a hundred rounds for walking around plinking.

Blazer is just CCI's bulk pack of lead round nose bullets.

The standard velocity is better. Clear plastic 100 round containers or the 50 round paper/cardboard that come as 10 boxes/500 round brick?

I sold a local shooter close to 2000 rounds yesterday. Was tempted, but I didn't gouge him. Charged close to what I paid for it. I have a ton left and felt sorry for him.

It is about as bad as it can get here in New York. While some of the new regs on selling ammo do not kick In until next year, small mom and pops ( not that there were ma y) that ammo won't be selling it anymore, I suspect wal mart in ny will pull it, leaving only crappy chain store like dicks sporting goods And gun shops left to sell it. I frequent what may be the biggest gun shop in ny and was there yesterday. Normally they have pallets of various ammo in the open floor space to include case lots of everything including 22's. now they have open floor space and most ammo shelves were empty. They had so little 22 left they were selling by the box only- no full bricks.
They had gouge prices on 223 and 308 - 90 cents a round. Only odd ball calibers left.
We're talking about a shop where I have been in the back room in the past and there was about 30 pallet loads of ammo

I never panic bought ammo . I reload my centerfire . My wife used to ask me why I always bought a box or two cci's when she dragged me off to the Wally World. Don't you have enough of that stuff yet ? How could you ever shoot that much ? She understands now !!! BTW I don't sell it , but I sure looked like a good guy when I went up to my Bro-in-laws last week and they were totally out .22 and his buddy's farm was over run with nutters. Man what a fun day .... Not for the squirrels though .

Exactly! I liked the little 50 round sub-boxes. It kept things tidy!

I'm not saying you made a bad deal, there is little ammo to be had most anywhere, I'm simply saying whoever sold it to you was scalping. And yes, historically, the 7 cents/rd of .22LR is much higher than 30 cents for 9mm which is only $15/box of 50. Not very long ago, Walmart's price for 550 rds of .22LR was $19.97.

Any store offering $15 a box of 50 for 9mm will be sold out within two hours of opening. Don

$0.07 per round is a fair price for CCI Standard Velocity. This isn't your typical bulk pack fodder. It's very good ammo. $7-$8/100 rounds was a decent price on it months ago, even. It's cost generally runs about the same as the Mini Mags.
