My local gun shop is starting to have 22lr in stock for a change. I had around 4,000rds put up but glad to see it on the shelves finally. I bought a 325rd box of Federal Automatch for $21.99 yesterday along with some 22 short CCI ammo. Now I can enjoy shooting without having to worry about raiding my stash. Good Luck.

Been lots of ammo showin up around here lately, EXCEPT .22lr. Its still hit and miss, mostly miss. But plenty of 9mm, .45, .223, etc. .22 mag was on the shelf today too.
Most of the big gubberment orders had to be filled by Oct 1st, so now we should see more and more instead of that little bit we've been used to.

Hope your right! We have a New Dicks Opening up here....so i'll be glad to get over there and pick up some. While you can never have "enough," Right now I think we have "enough" 38/357, 9mm, and Rifle & Shotgun ammo. Have about 3000 Asst. 22LR's right now,..but I'd feel better if I could Double that....

I think we Have 11K TOTAL..(or just above) because Half of that is 7.62-.308/.30-06/ .223/5.56....
I would Love to have 11K of JUST 22 Ammo!!! I also don't count the 1500+ of 45ACP I have since we rarely shoot that anymore...

Negative: since very little 22LR is available here(except online) I have had to focus on other areas of munitions to stock up on.

Positive: as a result, I have plenty of 38/357 & 9mm SD rounds, and have restocked on 12 & 20Ga. As well.

Outcome: one of my friends traded me 2-500 rd Federal 22LR Bricks and 200 rds. Of 22Mag. For 250 rds. Of 12Ga. 00 buck, and 100 rds. Of asst. slugs.
( I bought 3 250rd. Cases when I got the Catamount) I now have 8 bricks on the side, and a few 100's of loose 22 rounds, mostly CCI mini-mags, and Winchester Super-X HP's, but a few of the Federal auto-match( now have 3-325's of those,...saving for comp. shooting)... But nothing like Anna's stash.....

Bartering is a good thing. I have helped others and myself when I can. Sometimes money cant get you what you want.
