You didn't mention which brand of 22 LR was on sale. I just received a flyer from Bi-Mart which is a discount member store here in the Pacific NW. Federal Value Pack (525 rds) 36 gr. plated HP for $15.97. I will be picking up a few more. Not that many years ago CCI Mini-Mags would go on sale 2 for $5. Now they are $8.00 each. I'm glad I stocked up when I did.
