When is this famine going to end ? I have not seen any bulk .22LR ammo available for months. I have a few thousand rounds but hesitate to use it as who know when I will be able to replace it. I have a Spikes upper that is sitting unused due to this ammo shortage. I never thought I would see a shortage of .22 ammo. What little .22 ammo I use goes into my Ruger revolver, or Mark III. I am also glad I sold my Oly 9mm upper as there is little 9mm to be found either. What 9mm ammo I have I am saving for my Glocks.

Check out the Centurion .22lr at Palmetto. It costs a little more than bulk, but its accurate and has been running without a hitch in my jac conversion. And its available!

Soon. Each state seems to be different, but two states away, in Utah, I can go into any gun store or Walmart (at least any that carry ammo to begin with), and buy a bulk pack of .22LR. In fact, the last time I was in the Walmart near my house, they had a whole stack of Blazer 9mm for $9 per box.

Again, each state is different, Utah for some reason, seems to be ahead of most states in this regard. But ammo availablility is going up, and prices are coming down. I would be surprised if it took more than a month or two for you.

None of my Wal Marts have had any .22 lr in a long time. Bulks pakcs are next to impossible to find. I just spend $30 at a local gun shop for a 525 brick of Federal.

You have to look daily. When it shows up, buy as much as you can afford.

And because of guys like you.....thats probably why we dont have any in oregon

If everybody goes into a store and buys up "All they can afford" then that leaves nothing else for the guys who came after him, and when it does come back in stock the next guys does the same thing....its a vicous cycle that wont end until every body has eventually bought "all they can afford" If people just bought what they needed and a little extra just in case, there wouldn't be any ammo shortages....but too many people freak out, buy it all, which is more than they could use in years and it screws every body else over!!!

OK rant over

Don't know where in Fl. you are, but Tampa Bay has been dry of supply for 3 to 4 months. Luckily I shoot enough that I stocked up on Federal before any of this started. I really feel for the Guys who are just getting into AR-22's and Grab whatever brand ammo they can in Hopes that it'll work.
PS: Wally limits us to 6 boxes, any combination of ammo here.

Good Luck, it should be over soon.,

Some how I think its just that 22lr is so much fun to shoot we go through it to fast? (hey think of the bright side guys) even the pricey 100 round cci or w/e boxes are still WAY cheaper than a 20 pack of 223...

It has been hot and cold here in the panhandle. Today, the cupboard was bare at three of the local WalMarts for bulk packs.

Next week, it could be flowing again. Hard to predict...

In general, I am not shooting it up faster than I can replace it.

I don't know where you're going in Utah, but I haven't seen any bulk .22 at the five Walmarts in my area in Utah county for 4 or 5 months. Dry as a bone.

You might try Cabelas. For some reason, if you try a search for this on their website, nothing comes up. (it does offer you the $50 a brick Aguila though. ) This is better, but still not great. If the link doesn't work, type the item number "GK-21-6951" into the search bar. It's $85/2100, which comes out to a little over $20 per box, but it does come with a plastic ammo can too.

They're currently showing this as being backordered, but if you want to place an order you should get it in a few weeks. At least that has been my experience.

I'm still living on my stash of Federal from WalMart from when it was under $10/box for the bulk pack stuff.

I drove an hour and 15 min. to find some today. I only got 2 because they were so expensive. A local dealer had some Remington thunderbolt but I don't like that crap.

Even my own mother says I have no heart or soul.

If I need ammo and go to wally world, damn right I'll buy the whole case the way things are right now.

Then I don't have to go back for a while and can concentrate on shooting and not posting about where all the ammo went.

I bought my case and am happily firing away for the next few months. When I start running low, I'll start watching for the next case to snag.

Just keep looking, and when you find it, grab enough to keep you shooting............

I know you were joking but this is not true. There are Walmart shortages in some places and not in others because the same amounts(if any at all) are not shipped to ALL Walmarts.

How it is broken down, by region or revenue, who knows?

More expensive than the Wally bulk but it works. I've shot around 1300+ rounds through a MKII and CMMG AR 22 conversion with no issues.

No .22lr at any of my four local Walmarts but I did find where it all is. A local gun shop has it all and is now rationing it out to his customers one box at a time. The price was $29.97 per box for the Federal Bulk Packs.

Friday I received another case of Centurion after ordering it from Palmetto on Monday. 5000 rounds for $195 plus shipping. It shoots 1" groups at 75 yds from my CZ 452 and cycles all my semi's perfectly. What more could you ask for? Why scrounge around at Walmart when this stuff is readily available?
