Hate to do it. But I can't find bulk in stock anywhere. The price has almost tripled in 1 month. So if you know a place let us all know please.

I feel your pain, I just recently buit a dedicated upper to convert one of my sbr's to basically just for .22lr---I will be getting my last part needed today (FH). Now I'm ready to check it out and don't have a single .22lr round to my name--never had any .22lr gun before

I really never thought I'd see the day that someone felt compelled to post a .22 LR ammo availability thread.

Help us all. Good luck fellas.

Me neither but have you tried looking online for bulk .22LR? it's crazy.
I was able to buy some CCI at a LGS but still this is nuts.

if anyone has any idea where you could even buy 22lr by the pallet I would be down to do that as a group buy... just have no idea who even sells in those large amounts.

Good luck, ten 525 Federal Bulk boxes just sold for 1025.00 on Gunbroker. A case of 200.00 Federal selling for 5 times its original value. Crazy.

Just glad I seen it coming and am well stocked to ride it out till sanity returns..

Maybe try the Aguila Texas distributor? I'd be down for sure, love their Match ammo, runs very similar to CCI Std for me.

Boy, I should list my ammo on GunBroker! The time to buy ammo was six months ago. After many many years of shooting I long ago learned to buy things before you need them. Over the past few years I would buy stuff on sale and just put it away. I never bought over two bricks or bulk packs at a time. I didn't want to keep any of you from getting your share. Sadly when the panic hit people went crazy. Guys talk about having 100,000 rounds stashed away! Why? Do they really think they will never see it again? The hoarders are why you can't buy ammo. The people who go crazy and buy out every round on the shelf. Then there are the profiteers. They buy it up then double or triple the price. There is one LGS that goes by Walmart every morning and buys all the .22, 9mm, etc. and then takes it to his shop two miles away and sells it for three times what he paid for it. I make it a point to never go in his shop and tell others not to give him their business. He is heartless as are the folks who are sort of like "war profiteers".

You will have ammo again, it will just take time. Oh, I have a fair supply but not 100,000 rounds! No, I normally keep enough on hand to supply my normal needs for a year or two. In times like this I just keep an eye on how much I burn up. Trust me, all those ammo makers are pumping out that stuff as fast as possible. After all, its how they stay in business.

You make a lot of assumptions in your comments. Some people just like to shoot and they have ammo on hand.

Well I am not a hoarder or profiteer but I do have around 6000 rounds put away. Lots of varying types as I also shoot my antique rimfires that require shorts,longs and in standard and CB velocitys. I did see this coming as soon as mid last year and thankfully every week I bought a little till it ran out of supply. Would have bought more but have to eat too. We have four people that shoot alot of rimfire in my Family. I, my wife,and three kids. Hope it comes back by midyear as that is not alot to supply 4 shooters. We can easily shoot up atleast a thousand rounds in a outing but may have to cut back some with all this stupidity. What I do not understand is I called Federal and they said they are making ammo 7 days a week and shipping it seven days a week but I asked them how can that be as there is none available to me. Whos getting it and they had no answer...

Few of the complainers seem to know the culprit for the supply problem and everything else that follows. Last year the govt ordered 6 billion rounds for domestic uses. The manufacturers have not invested in more production. They are producing for the govt orders and leaving a pittance for sale to the PEOPLE. Using the taxes of the PEOPLE to buy and sequester the ammo from the PEOPLE. It is a back door to destroy the 2ND amedment. The major manufactures who get the govt contracts are the one and same that produce the military ammo. Remember the low cost bulk mill spec supply? That is barred from the PEOPLE as well as brass, primers, powder and bullets. All supplies to the PEOPLE are purposely scarce and in itermittent short supply, BY DESIGN in the interests of TYRANNY.

Notice just how quiet this obvious manipulation of the industry is being kept by the MSM. The govt, the military-industrial complex, the world banks, the world wide commodaties industry, the shipping industry and the MSM are all the puppets of the global leaders above and beyond any government.

The actual fact is that around three million guns were bought in the last two months! If everyone wanted just 200 rds of ammo for each one, that's 6,000,000 rds of ammo at a low guess for demand! Add to that all the regular usage, and there you have a big shortage!

600,000,000 is the number you were looking for there.
