Hey all, I love shooting my Ruger 10/22. I have it tricked out with a custom target barrel, thumbhole target stock and Simmons 44mag Mil-Dot variable scope. When I lived back in Ohio, I used to shoot probably 1000 rounds a week for several months. WalMart was right around the corner from our range and I usually bought the Remington Golden 500 round Brick for about $18 or so. Naturally those days are gone and probably won't be back for a while. I know it's crazy out there still and have no idea when this lunacy is going to let up. My local Wally sports guy told me that he hasn't SEEN a box of 22LR ammo in over 3 months. By the way, I'm in the Houston, Texas area. Tonight I thought I'd check the prices for 22LR ammo and see if any semblance of normalcy is returning. I had a place bookmarked for a LONG time and have never went there, it was ABLE AMMO. I go and check their 22LR ammo and find some of the craziest stuff I have seen in a LONG time. They had basic 50 round boxes of Remington Thunderbolt 22LR priced at $15.95! That's for ONE 50 round box, NOT a brick. I didn't check anything else after seeing that, no need to. I did glance at a few other prices and they were similarly priced. I left just shaking my head wondering if I am ever going to get to shoot my 10/22 again. I don't know if I'll ever be able to buy a BRICK at these circumstances. I talked to my buddy back home a couple weeks ago and was telling him how bad the ammo situation is down here and he said that it has eased up a great deal back there. He said he is regularly seeing 9mm ammo on the shelves and more often than not, the 22LR Bricks are there as well. I didn't ask him prices, but I am going to talk to him tomorrow and see what the situation with 22LR is now up there. From now on I may have to have him start buying my 22LR ammo for me. LORD knows I can't afford to pay $15.95 for 50 rounds of 22LR ammo. Even if I had the money, I don't think I'd pay that much for it. I know it's crazy out there, but is it THIS INSANE this far removed from all the panicked buying and hoarding? What kind of prices are you all seeing for 22LR ammo both in 50 round boxes and Bricks? Thanks for the help and info. Nalajr Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
