    YEA I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE DEAL IS WITH .22 --sorry caps stuck --

    only thing i can figure is some wall-streeter is trying to corner the rimfire market and the ammo mfgs are not making 22 LR for some reason to keep it scarce.

    no real reason for 22 ammo to be this expensive and scarce. now i don't really care that much because at the prices it is going for i can about shoot 9mm for the same $$$ -now ain't that nutz?--LOL!

    No money in it for the manufactures j4.. Powder and lead, copper is going into ammo, the U.S.. "Arms Dealer Too The World" is selling too forign countries. No time for .22.. It is NOT a rush on the ammo.. Why make it if Russia and China is paying us a fortune for our killing equipment. Hi Sarah, Hi..

    IIRC Mick has posted on gunco about the availability of .22 in Canada. Now if I could remember what thread it was in.

    Oddly my wife used to work for a major pharmaceutical company with factories everywhere. Basically they price drugs according to what the market will bear. In the USA we get he privilege of paying for the R&D that went into the drugs and a higher profit margin where as other markets like Mexico only pay for the cost of manufacturing the drug at a profit. It's a bunch of BS.

    One of the main problems are the idiots paying these high prices, if it doesn't sell it comes back down closer to where it should be. There's no way I'll pay $50+ for a brick of low end 22lr

    Yesterday I went by the local gander mountain they didn't have as much .22 as they did on the 2/25 but they did have it in stock. Still limiting to 200 rds, unless you get there right at open to snag a bulk pack (according the the firearms sales guy). They have 50 round boxes of Federal Champion 40 gr. for $2.49/box - so a 1000 rds would be $49.80. That was the lowest price they had there. I think the days of the $7 and $8 federal 550 bulk packs are now part of the "good old days".

    But the sad thing is people paying big money for the 333 and 555 bulk packs (over $50 from resellers/gunshows/etc).

    Got an email add from Centerfire for 440 rounds of 7.62X54R for $120. I emailed them back and told them to eat 'em.
