    It's like that for all ammo unfortunately; I had to spend about an hour online to find anything left at a reasonable price. 10 minutes after I found something, they sold out.

    It's one of those things you've gotta be extremely opportunistic or flat out lucky to find. I've seen 90 cases sell out on SG in about 6 minutes. I should be good for a couple years at least on 22 so I've quit searching really. One thing I've noticed about SG lately is that they're splitting up their stuff on all calibers instead of just selling cases only like before. Of course, it's all at an elevated price like most everywhere else (not blaming SG). I'm sorry but I'm not paying $.36/rd for 9mm and $.50 or more for .45 hardball...which eventually that'll be normal prices and will have no choice, but I'll wait till then to do it. I won't fault anyone for buying what they want/need, but really if we just all stopped buying/hoarding/whatever then prices would go back to normal a lot sooner, and that goes for everything...as hard as that might be to do. $1000 Glocks included.

    If it's the same thing (16 individual 100-round boxes of Mini-Mags, plated round-nose, not HPs), it's $104.00, plus tax. Click to see bigger view:

    How does the ammo selection look at Scheels down there? The one in Grand Forks is completely out of everything in the typical calibers.

    Pretty stripped here, too. They do get stuff in every now and then (just like Walmart), but it doesn't last very long. No rimfire at all, I haven't seen any for weeks. They had some bulk-packed .223 remanufactured SP loads show up in 500-round boxes, along with a decent stack of Hornady 50-round boxes of SPs, and I remember thinking, well, that should hold folks for a while; but it was all gone 2 days later when I stopped in. They had a bunch of .40 ammo on the shelf for a couple of days, then it was mostly gone; I think they only have some Blazer in .40, now. I heard of a small batch of 9mm ammo showing up, but it didn't last more than a couple of hours.

    As of a couple of days ago, they had a ton of XD mags in various calibers (filled up the empty Glock showcase with them -- how cruel). I bought a few G17 mags a couple of weeks ago (they'd received maybe 20 or so), but they disappeared within a day.

    Same as many other places, stuff comes in, and goes out FAST. If a person isn't checking regularly, they just assume that nothing has come in at all during that week/month.

    Thanks DJ. Sounds like they might be getting more in down there than they are up here. The guy I talked to last week said they haven't gotten any new .223, 9mm, or .22 in about three weeks.

    Funny you should mention all of the XD mags filling up the Glock case, I saw the same thing last week when I went looking for a couple G19 mags. They must have gotten a big shipment in from Springfield, they even started putting some of the XD pistols in the Glock pistol display.

    Got lucky and called a LGS and asked if they had ANY .22LR....He said yep, CCI.

    Off I went. $10/box, 2 box limit. I felt lucky to find any.

    Natchez shipping has always been like that. You order a magazine spring and 2 screws and they want 11.75 to ship it to you. I sent an email to their CS awhile back addressing this, and never got a response. Oh well.

    Just found some Remington .22lr "golden bullet" boxes of 525 for $19.99 locally, limit one per customer. Not my favorite, but usable and better than nothing. I bought one box and there was only one left after that. Small amounts trickle in and go quickly at my local source. Haven't seen any MiniMags in a long time, and that's what everyone wants right now.

    All of the gun stores AND walmarts near me have been out of .22lr for weeks.

    That actually sounds half-way decent...I'm guessing you have a .22 firearm in your line-up that will like that Federal target load... :cool:

    Cabelas had the Troy Landry 325 pack for....$50. I hope Troy realizes what his name is getting associated with (i.e., gouging, over priced, etc).

    From what I have read and heard on other forums and stuff that it could be a year or more before things in the gun world return to normal or near normal and that really depends on what antigun bills are passed into law. Things don't look to good right now. I hope that most of you stocked up when you could. Good luck!
