    It all depends if they were worth the price to you!
    I'm glad I have about 15k 22lr rounds stocked up from buying them years ago!

    I see CCI mini mags a lot.

    I don't ever buy them though. To me, the point of shooting a 22 is large quantities of cheap fun. Buying a box of 50 for six bucks doesn't fit the bill.

    So I always leave them for others to buy, and I'm still holding out on finding bulk packs, even though I'm running low on my supply.

    Glad you found some though, if its what you were looking for.

    These were 100rds for $7 at the local Walmart. I went in to get some 9mm WWB to take to the range and picked up just one box of these for a gift. They had 6 boxes.

    Ammunition is becoming more available. The prices are dropping. The "hoarders" woke up in their bunkers to find America is still a free Nation.:D

    Our last trip to Big 5 And guess what they had? A Case of CCI Stingers! 2 boxes per., Box of 50. I got two and the wife bought two. The only ammo faster is the Anguila Super Maximum. The CCI is about 1700 FPS, and The Super Maximum's List 1750 on the box..difference is the stinger isa 32Gr. HP and the other is a 38Gr. round nose. they both make a Very Noticeable "CRACK" our of the barrel, instead of the "pop" of most 22LR ammo...

    Fifty for six bucks? I've seen fifty go for twenty bucks on a regular basis. Fifty for six bucks is cheap, especially for CCI mini mags.

    I use Super X for plinking, and sometimes for hunting, but I'll take all the Mini Mags I can find at twelve bucks per hundred. That's cheaper than we pay for bulk around here.

    THAT is what I'm looking for. :(

    I have two boxes of these. I bought it out of desperation but I really don't like this ammo.

    I think the "hoarders" woke up to the fact they have to

    pay their bills, and balance their survival hoard with food

    and other supplies before they buy any more ammo...;)

    To me, the T-Bolts are just the dirtiest 22 ammo I have ever seen or shot! When we were shooting the one brick we bought, within 25-30 rounds through our Buckmark's, they would foul and begin to jam. It would take a bit longer in the rifles, but still. Not All Remington 22 ammo is "Bad," the Yellow Jackets, and the competition stuff is very good ammo. But that's why T-Bolts are so "Cheap." We use the Federal Gold Medal for comp. Shooting, and Auto Match( when we can find it) or champion or Am. Eagles for practice/ plinking...

    Green tags are match ammo. $22 is still over priced, but it's not $4.99 either. They were running about $10-$12 per 50

    A couple of places here are getting .22lr back on the shelves periodically,, picked up brick of 500 for 35 bucks the other day for a fellow at work,, I still have several thousand rounds from my trips with the wife to pick up her shotshell reloading supplies,, trap shooters,, always out of shot and wads,, but the real treat for me was finding some .22 mag rounds for a fairly reasonable price, a couple of weeks ago,, for my fishing revolver,, and I have seen a lot more .17 HMR 's in the stores, I don't own one but several buddies do and they are much happier now. I think things are slowly getting better, and hopefully prices and supplies will return to more reasonable levels.
