.22 LR ammo is on back order at all wholesellers. Who is buying it up?
Late to come to the party preppers?
Price on the secondary market has gone up 5 times here in Texas.
I was in Academy Friday. No .22 LRs to be seen.
Isn’t the slower velocity better for more internal damage?
Don’t have to worry about an angry parole in the future.
Some Found out that the 22 LR could be really dangerous?
I have a few bricks of the stuff. Who knew it would outperform my IRAs?
Proper placement is of paramount importance with the .22 It can be VERY deadly. High speed solids would get my vote.
Late to come to the party preppers.
From what I’ve seen, people are buying anything and everything anticipating a ban or shortage; even if they don’t own a firearm for it.
I was considering buying a 45-70 revolver from a friend a short while back and when I checked the store for ammo, no one had any. They said they usually do but the boxes that sat there for years and years all flew off the shelf along with everything else.
You know there is panic buying when even odd sizes like that are gone.
Buy the new Ruger 10/22 takedown. Put your name on a list since they go out the minute they come in. Buy .22 when you can find it.
I’ve got 5250 rounds on order. I don’t expect to see it until March, hopefully.
This is what I’m sayin’!
Im thinking about cashing out a 401k and doing some much more sound investing myself.
Have you tried to buy some rifle brass?
You can find .243, .270 and a few others. But try to find .223, 30-30, .308, 30-06 and most common calibers and you draw a blank.
Surely, the idiots in DC can see the effect. Shelves are bare of cartridges for those calibers too.
This has been going on since November and is getting worse.
Caution is in order, I feel Obozo would love to provoke a reason to do even worse than he is.
Maybe reloaders are hoarding all the brass /sarc>
I've had no problem finding 7.5 Swiss and 9x18. I don't have much that shoots it, but I can shoot what I do have until the barrels melt.
I sadly only have one .22LR, and it's a breakdown survival rifle. I want to buy a 10/22 or something of the like, but they're hard to come by.
Agreed, and the best, smoothest, best performing handgun I ever shot was a ‘tuned’ .45, it was awesome.
I do think that ammo prices have kept the .22 LR as one of the most popular for those on tight $$ that want to practice.
