,22 Calibe Long Rifle Ammo Supply seems to be dried up

I can not believe it has been since like before Christmas, and no of my Local Wal-Martss had any .22 LR's?

Welcome to last month!

This is old news. There hasn't been any .22LR (not to mention many other calibers) for quite a while now.

Found some CCI mini mag copper HP 100 rds for $9.25 and bought the max........2 boxes.


This was a local find and they only had one brick left.


I feel dirty.

I happened to come across some at my LGS on Friday. 500 rounds of CCI mini mags for $43.50. They received around 10000 rounds and were limiting everyone to 500 rounds. By the time I left the store they were already out.

I cannot believe that you cannot believe it! Have you forgotten 1994 and what the AWB did?

I have learnt to stock up on essential goods before hurricane warnings, I have learnt to keep a one year supply on ammo.

It escapes me how people cannot foresee this to be repeated.

sgammo.com got a few million rounds of 22LR in over the last two weeks. I think they're done getting in what they ordered for a while, but I snagged a 5K round case of CCI SV from them. Note that they sold 200 cases in 23 minutes from when their email notification was sent.

The ammo is still being produced and shipped on a regular basis- you just need to know how, where, and when to look in order to find some.

Yeah some .22LR was on cheaperthandirt last week, I think it was around 23 bucks for 500 rounds. Not a terrible price.

Well, then, they must have sold a few million rounds of .22LR since you posted. I just checked, and they've got exactly NOTHING in stock, according to their website.

They were sold out when I posted. My point was that they have gotten several shipments in the past two weeks alone. They sell out very quickly each time, but the ammo keeps coming. It's not like there hasn't been any ammo available for the past month.

Persistence is needed to find stuff that gets stocked before it is sold out, but the ammo still being produced as fast as it ever was. One thing that 22LR has going for it is that they can't change a rimfire line over to produce 5.56 or 9mm. So, that capacity will still be used for 22LR. Less popular centerfire cartridges are probably out of luck until some of this craziness subsides because there's too much money in running 5.56/.223 and 9mm on every line available.

It's not dried up. There's only so much that can fit on one truck. When people are lined up hours before opening it doesn't last long. Now you're stuck waiting on the next shipment.

I just picked up over 3k rounds.

Honestly, I never thought I'd see the day when .22 LR was being sold at 10+ cents a round!

A week ago, I found two boxes of Federal AutoMatch at one of our local Walmarts. Last night, I checked another one on the way home from work (after midnight), and they had just stocked two of the CCI plastic ammo cans that contain 1600 rounds of .22 LR Mini-Mag (round nose, not HP).

Walmarts are getting ammo, even .22, it's just coming in much more slowly, and getting sold (all of it) within an hour or two of it hitting the shelf.

You remember the price for that can?

Some local guy is asking $185....won't budge.

My LGS got in a case yesterday and was selling a box of 50rds for $2.29, limit of two boxes per person per day. I felt like I was holding onto gold when I got them.
