That's a great deal. You should have taken the money.

According to what I've read, American manufacturers typically produce somewhere between 2-1/2 and 3-billion rounds of .22LR a year. Perhaps as much as another billion rounds is imported from off-shore sources in a year. For at least the last four months retailer shelves largely have been empty and the supplies in normal distribution seem to have dried up. Part of the shortage, no doubt, is due to panic buying caused by any number of factors (fears of confiscation; fears of the apocalypse and related SHTF scenarios; fears of shortages - which have now become a self-fulfilling prophecy; etc.). All we have to do is look for our preferred ammo on line at the auction sites, etc., and see that speculators and gougers somehow have cornered the market. Preferred .22LR brands on a per round basis are going for about what 9mm was averaging in the dim, dark distant past of "normal" times (i.e., six months ago or so). I for one have largely chosen not participate in the buying frenzy for a couple of reasons: 1. I simply can't afford to; 2. For the past couple of years I've been stocking up on my preferred brands with an extra box or two whenever I had a few dollars left over at the end of a month. Last week I did an inventory and calculate I can participate in benchrest rimfire rifle for about 18 months with current supplies, maybe 24 months of pistol steel challenge and 6 months of general plinking/target shooting. If the supply side hasn't returned to fairly normal by year-end, general plinking/target shooting will be curtailed. And like many, I'll keep in mind those who tried to keep prices at "normal" levels and those who gouged during the ammo drought.

My LGS has had plenty of everything lately. Some of the prices are just above what they were before the panic of the sheeple set in but the .22lr that I have purchased was near normal for that store. I have a fair amount so I wont be buying much more for awhile. Everyone else can stock up.

arghh! i want to live near YOUR wal-mart! i keep hearing these stories....i haven't seen a box of 22 at wal mart in over 4 months. i check every time i am there!

best i can do lately is an occasional mini mag at academy or cabelas, with a 1 (100 round) box limit.

SOOO TRUE! it bothers me when posters are like "yeah, i got a brick of 22 for $50, which is pretty good." NO...ITS NOT! that is about a 100% mark up or more.....walk away!

i'll get mine 20 or 100 rounds at a time, but i will not pay more than 20% over pre panic prices! i'm trying my best to combat the "profit on ammo" business!

just a curiosity question....we have all seen what the panic bulk buying and buying up ammo to turn a profit has done to our hobby/sport.

would you support permanent limits on ammo purchases in the future? i mean, just at major retail places like wal mart, academy, cabelas, etc.?

i think a limit per day of like 200 rounds, or 2 bulk boxes (once supplies return) would benefit all imo. the bulk ammo businesses could still sell their 5000 rnd cases or whatever.

thoughts?

Pulling this thread out of moth balls I know, but I placed a order for the same two buckets of 1400, as well as a friend of mine, and the orders are still in the same status as when we placed them in April. Has any one ordered this "deal" and received them? My buddy went to the store and they
would not sell any ammo to him in person, said it all had to be done on the internet.

Have they actually charged your CC for this order? If so, personally I would cancel and get a refund. I'm not in the habit of floating loans to companies who can't honor their commitments.
