Hopefully, some sanity will come to .22LR ammo prices.

That WON’T happen if the Klinton bimbo is elected by the same clowns that gave us the Obozo. Don

I used to see moms, dads and kids shooting 22 guns at the range a few years ago. Not so much today because of the cost of 22 ammo.

When the first 22 ammo shortage happen I wasn't aware of it. My next door neighbor needed 22 ammo because they bought a 22 rifle for their daughter Christmas present. He said Wal Mart was out so I gave him a brick and told him they could replace it when Wal Mart restocked. Well that didn't happen and they felt bad not being able to replace it. I told them to forget it if I made some kid's Christmas happy that was good enough for me.

I buy CCI 22 Mini Mags by the 5,000 case, Winchester 40 HP by the 5,000 case and Eley Sport standard velocity (for suppressors) by the 5,000 round case. I would buy Wal Mart value packs as cheap plinking ammo.

Old guys like me have been voting the NRA gun ticket since the age of 18. We need young voters as shooters and they need affordable 22 ammo.

I certainly hope so.

I gave 550 Wal Mart bulk packs for Christmas presents.
I hope to build up the 22 stock before next Christmas.

My shooting league at our banquet around Christmas usually gives a token small gift ( pocketknife, flashlight etc) to each shooter. This year the gift was federal bulk pack ammo - you would of thought they were given out a winning lottery ticket!

A barrel of .22 ammunition sounds like a very fun thing. I wonder what it would have been before the "crisis?"

Probably half that price.

$0.08/round isn't exactly a deal. If I'm buying in bulk that huge, I expect to get a decent deal. I'd rather pay $0.04-0.05/round.

Well, what you'd pay and what they can get don't equate. Apparently with them being out of stock, they got the price they wanted as did the buyer.

.08 a round, then on top of that shipping on a 360lb barrel.

No wonder I still can't put my hands on any.

I wonder how much of that ammo would be damaged in shipping packaged like that?

It will come strapped to a shipping pallet, so would be unlikely to be damaged........but, once at your location, can you imagine the hassles of moving it around?

....that is, unless you happen to have a fork lift!

It's only 360lbs, not 3,600. You can either tip the barrel on an edge and roll it along an edge, or you can use a hand truck, not even close to being a hassle.

I move heavy barrels where I work. It can be done with a special hand truck equipped to move barrels, but not easily with one person. When you put your theory to practice......yes, it is a hassle.

I agree Buck and even though I totally got caught off guard with .22 ammo I scored a pound of WST today so life is good. I think I have at least six pounds of powder so I should be set for a little while.
