22lr
 
Just out of curiosity: what was .22LR going for, pre-panic? I have never owned a .22 but might consider picking one up and was wondering about the ammo. I know that all ammo has become scarce and gone up considerably in price and I have an idea of how much the 9mm and .380 stuff has risen. I just don't know how cheap and readily available .22lr was before. I frequent GunBot to see what certain calibers are going for and noticed that the cheapest .22, right now, is about .13/.14 a round. What was it like before and what is everyone paying now?

Thanks.

Box of 555 Winchesters for about $25. Box of 100 run of the mill plinking rounds for about $6. Now? Same box of 555 maybe $40 -$60. During the nutzo period I saw it as high as $90. Finding it is priority one; pricing it is next.

4 to 7 cents per round was most 22 ammo

The summer of '12 I bought a federal bulk pack 525? on sale for $18. Might not ever see that again.

Thanks gang. I guess I'll do like I've been doing with the .380 and 9mm. Keep my eyes open for bargains.

I have used this one several times and I really like it. When I went there today they had 22lr for .08 so I bought some.

Thanks!

The Lawton Academy store often has .22 ammo at pre-panic prices. i recently bought a 500 round box of Winchester Expert for $19.99 plus tax.

Winchester 525 packs right now are about $24 at Cabela's when they have them in stock. Federal bulk packs were right around $21 this time last year.
