My bet is that when a panic hits, people scarf up 22LR because it is cheap. Before a panic strikes, because it is so cheap, I buy a brick or two every time I am at Dick's, Bass Pro, or am buying anything online. I currently have 30+ bricks of different brands of 22LR.
It's like M2carbine always says, 'it's not going to get cheaper', so I buy in off-panic years.
Plus, when shooting anything costs as much as it has become, you can still shoot 22LR all day long. So when all the other calibers get in short supply, people grab 22LR so they can at least shoot something.
