Default .22 LR ammo?

I'm having a heck of a time finding either CCI Stinger or Velocitor ammo. Does anyone know why it's so hard to find?

I'm guessing there is not a big demand for it. My local suppilers have winchester's XP, a buttload of bulk pack varieties, and only a few CCI mini mags now and then. I haven't seen velociters or stingers in a looong time.

Every time I think the shortage is about to end, the shelves go empty again at my local Wal-Mart. Aside from a pawn shop with super-inflated prices, Wal-Mart is all we have close by without driving at least an hour. I really can't figure why .22 LR is so scarce. Everyone talks about hoarding, but who the heck hoards plinking rounds? I see the 36-grain bulk packs returning slowly, but I sure miss the variety of 40-grain .22 LR that used to be so easy to get. A rare case of Federal Auto Match showed up a few weeks ago, but disappeared almost immediately. At least I got a few boxes of that...

Default 22 lr

What would you rather have? 10 # 45 ammo or 10 # 22 Lr, There are a lot of people buying this ammo, just in case the $$it hits the fan. Besides if it does, I'll take 22 LR to hunt with any day. If I find what your looking for I'll send PM. Wills in da Swamp in La. One Shot One Kill..........

I'm talking about CCI Stinger or Velocitor specifically.

Try this link to MidwayUSA. They appear to have it in stock right now...

Cabela's also has it available in bulk.

Just got back from Cabela's in Fort Worth and they have none. Plus, their website says "out of stock."

Isn't Cheaper than Dirt somewhere close to that area too? They might have what you need...

Right here in Fort Worth, and they're out and have been for several weeks. Maybe CCI is focusing more on primers than ammo.
