i was happy to pay $19 for several bricks of automatch quite a few months ago (when it was the first i had found in months & months). however, i honestly am not impressed with the stuff....imo basically comparable to most other bulk cheap 22, and you get 325 instead of 500....

i paid $2 bucks each a week ago for 2 boxes of 50 ct. rem. thunderbolts....i think i got ripped off....

Did the same awhile back, but boy o boy I wish I could find 22mag at a reasonable price if at all. Would love to see it again at $10.00 / $12.00 per 50rd box.

The lack of cheap ammo is making some folks dump their classic .22 rifles and pistols.
So while the ammo might be a PITA to find, deals on what eats them aint!

Free market.............don't like a scalper, don't buy from 'em.

Real simple..............they can only sell the stuff at prices people are willing to pay.

I went to my local gun shop the other day and they had several bricks and different choices of .22 ammo. Overpriced? Sure, but still cheaper then the overpriced 9mm, .45, and .40 ammo. Plus, I would prefer to spend more money on ammo and train then to complain about the price of ammo and not be ready for a real life situation.
