    Good to know there are people like me that forget about ammo that most people will never accumulate over a lifetime!!!:rofl:

    That CCI Blazer is great in My Savage MkIIs and the CZ 452.

    I did buy some CCI Minimag 36 gr hollow points from Palmetto about a month ago, but I see they are sold out now.

    In my search for .22LR, i stumbled upon several .223's, but
    not a single .22. This has for the past couple of weeks.

    Got lucky at my local Gandermountain today. I have been stopping in just about every day over lunch to check to see if they may have received a shipment. Today was that day. They had 9mm and .22lr. However, a 2 box per caliber limit :crying:. Anyway, walked out with 1000 rds of winchester X in the wooden boxes and 100 rounds of Remmington 9mm. Even though they were on "sale", the .22 was $32/box and the Remington $13.99.

    Since this was the 1st .22lr I have seen in weeks, I took it.

    Wow, that's not horrible right now for 9mm. Figured Gander would be more. Been seeing it routinely now for $18-$19/box in most places, even non-reloadable stuff. I bet guys who compete a lot are hurting right now, whether they reload or not.

    13.99 for 9mm is as cheap as I have seen 115gr FMJ around here. Walmart has been spotty with Federal @ 13.97. Hope you don't think I paid $32 for 50 rds of 9mm!

    Cabelas has CCI 22 minimag in stock now for ~.07 cents round.

    I have some of my ammo from 2008 left. We have only 22 wmr, stingers, shorts and 22 shotshells on our shelves.

    On a Mossberg forum it seems like every other new member has purchased the 716 "tactical" 22 - not AR based just the 702 in a shell with rails and a carry handle option. An equal number are searching for the same gun available for sale - paintball grads thanks to Santa?! I'll admit to buying much more 22 in the last 2 years (and guns) than I previously thought I would.

    I always buy more than I shoot but in the greater St. Louis region 22LR just fell off the cliff. Went from stocked to not in a very short time. Mag, short and birdshot sit alone on store shelves. There is no hidden mom-n-pop shop that I'm not in touch with either. I make a lot of calls mostly for reloading supplies - very spotty but have a lot and keeping level there. Reserve is shelf ammo from last election.

    Everyone I know has boycotted CTD for the most part due to their scumbag practices

    Here in southern TX, I have not seen any .22lr in stock anywhere. I am down to about 3k rounds and getting warried.

    I got off work at 7 o'clock this morning and stopped at my local Academy on the way home where there already 2 guys waiting outside the door. I figured what the heck and stood in line BSing with them which paid off cause when they opened the doors I was able to buy a brick of .22 for $19.99, a box of 5.56 for 8.99, and a box of .223 for 9.99. That's all they would allow a person to buy though. At least I can go give my new 10/22 takedown a whirl now without worrying about burning up ammo.

    My local gun store got some 22 ammo in, but man is it pricey. 1 box per person and its 35$ for a box of 350.
