I keep hearing how its getting better, but I'm not seeing it. I stopped by a Sporting goods shop upstate while taking a ride in the mountains and the guy said he had .22 at $10. A box. A box of 50! What is going on?

They may not ban all of our guns but they will price us out of the sport it seems.
I have been successful at finding ammo at decent prices but it takes time, timing, and work! The big thing is to set a per round Max for yourself (mine are .44 cents per40 cal. round and .09 cents per 22 cal. round) and shop until you find it. I have picked up 500 rounds of 40 in three last three Weeks and 200 rounds of 22 in the last week...all from diff. Shops on diff. Days. The most I bought in one place was 200 rounds of 40 at a Walmart. You can find it..just have to keep looking.

I've been able to buy 40sw at under .35 cents a round at both Walmart and Academy Sports. I just call first thing to the morning and make sure I get to the store before lunch brake. After that all you can find is an empty shelf. I even purchase some 9mm from Walmart at 10.47 per 50 round box.

Unfortunately, reloading gear and components have gotten as scarce as loaded ammo these days.
