I've noticed prices for some of the lower calibers is just as high as the larger ones. I mean, I recall seeing a 50-count box of .25 Auto for $25 and that's more than my 45 ACP cost. Sure hope this ammo craziness settles down some more, I know it's better than it was but still...needed to load up on 45 ACP to break-in my new 1911, so I'm not trying to stockpile the ammo just get enough to run the gun through its paces.
Yes 22 is still scarce in the " over the counter" channel. It seems to be coming back slowly, and it doesn't help when your local dealer charges $10-12 dollars a box of 50(and sometimes even $15 & up!) Our one Honest Pawn& Gun guy gets it for $6 something a box. He's not making much of a mark up on it, and it's the only place you can walk into here and buy it anyway. Outside of that it's hunt for good prices on Ammoseek and hope yup don't get destroyed on S&H charges. The next closest "Honest" places is a specialist in Sedona( milsurps and stuff) and our Range & Shop over in Camp Verde. The Great Walmart ammo conspiracy of 2013 we won't even get into again, it makes my pressure rise by 25 points!
As long as you can get it, the Rugers are good guns to put 22's through.
