I never understood the rationale for the shortage. Varmint hunting for food? I don’t get it.

Don't you just love our (relatively) free market economy?
Pennies per round of ammo citizens of most other countries can't even buy, period.

OMG! That’s the problem with our gun culture, people can be murdered for under 4 cents. Why else do places like Chicago have such high murder rates?!! Those bullets should have a $400 per round tax! (with the left over $399.96 funneled to the DNC)

Sorry, just trying to think like a lib.

Twice in 2017 I was able to buy CCI Mini-Mags for $0.07 per round, which was the pre-2008 pricing.

Obama was buying as many rounds as he could to keep them out of the hands of private citizens. In other words, he “created” the shortage, because the factories only have so much capacity. Now that we don’t have the government buying every round, there’s an oversupply as companies maintained their production levels.

Will have to check - stocked up with several thousand rounds when the shortage was hitting and events have kept me from doing much plinking so I haven’t checked recently.

You get what you pay for. I only buy CCI Stingers.

About $30 for a box of 500 in Salt Lake. Not too good but at least it’s available now.

A Facebook friend found a flyer from a church in Tennessee that advertised that it would pay a dollar for every bullet people turned in. He was tempted to drive there from Georgia with a case of these but resisted the temptation.

Oddly, around Portland, Oregon we never had pricing issues when ammo did come in at places like Walmart or Bi-Mart. They limited supply and it was hard to come by but they never jacked up their prices.

The pawn shops, some gun shops, and vendors at the gun shows were the ones jacking up pricing on new 22lr, reselling the ammo from retail stores, or old personal inventory from before the shortage.

Patience paid off for me over the shortage time-frame, buying one or two boxes of 50 per week or two, the rare 100rnd CCI stick, and the occasional brick at normal pricing. I managed to buy thousands of rounds during that period in the $0.04/rd range, or less.

Pricing is still good, inventories improving, limits have been lifted here now and we are starting to see more variety (seemed like Federal and CCI were the only ones making 22lr ammo). The only thing that would say we’re back to normal is if the .22 starts being placed out on open shelving and not kept strictly behind the counter.

All the newbies from the Obozo era have finally gotten over the rush and now there is enough 22lr in the pipeline for prices to be forced down.

Have not been able to find any for the past 4 years in N Nevada except at gun shows. Gun show availability is only rumor—have not been to one.

Just got a box of 333 Winchester 36 grain hollow point .22 LR for $17.37 at Walmart in Midlothian, VA. 5.2 cents a round.

Shipping kills a lot of these low ball prices. More than happy paying 5.9 cents after tax for some Winchester Super X 1300 fps at Big Five after $10 off $30 coupon (400 rounds)
