.22lr ammo has been very scarce here in n.w. OH10, and the lowest I have seen it was about 35 bucks a brick, I passed. I still have between 7 and 8 thousand rounds sitting around so I'll hold out buying until I'm down to only a few thousand,, I had over 10 at one time,, found some Federal cartons in the hall closet that I forgot about, mixed with electrical supplies. I donated a few bricks to a LGS that supplies some youth shooting groups that could not find .22's anywhere at that time. The big reason I had so much is the wife buying reloading supplies for trap shooting,, when we went to pick up wads, shot, etc., I'd normally pick up a brick or two, not realizing exactly how much I had until the crunch came upon us. I'm set for awhile and it is good trade fodder at the gun clubs I am membered.
