Default Rimfire rifle shooters— heads up

If you need ammo, you might be SOL.
Better look around and see if you can find some 22lr ammo,
Looking around on sites looks like it is hardly available.
I did order 1000 rounds of 17hm2.
Already had 5200 rounds on hand.
And already have 10,000 rounds of 22lr on hand.

Cheers.

Thanks for heads up. I have about 50000 of .22 but need more .40 and .308 when it gets real weird

And it seems that "Cheaper Than Dirt" is gouging, again, during this "crisis". I suggest we all boycott them.

I expect this ammo shortage to last well into year. Might be resolved in Dec 2020- Jan 2021.
Demand so high even manufacturers can’t keep up if they are still making ammo. Don’t know if this corona is affecting their actual production or not.

Limit was one box per customer yesterday at the big store. Only three boxes left, off brand.

I’m sitting on only 1,000 rds .22lr, but figure I can only shoot ‘n eat so many squirrels

Everything is getting harder to find, not just .22 ammo. Reloading components are getting tough to find, depending on what you use. Popular bullets and powders are selling out. And shipping on orders from suppliers is jammed up to the point that a bullet order I placed this last week isn't scheduled to arrive until April 8th.

Just ordered case of geco Match 22 from target sports USA.
Good ammo in my Annie.
Shoots lights out.
Cheap too.

Only 5 cases left, better hurry.
Been 3 case since sold in last few minutes.
Bet it’s gone in less than an hour.


Now only 2 cases left or 23 bricks.

Couple minutes later, now only 11 bricks left.

Couple minutes later, now only 1 brick left.

Geco match is gone. All sold.
Took only about 20 minutes.

This video explains a lot of what the deal is.

Looks like .22LR is going to go away for a long time....again!

I'm in good shape on the rimfire but wanted to add a little bit of quiet subsonic.
Checked gunbot.net and found ammofast still had stock. Ordered a small quantity so we will see how it goes.....

What subsonic do you use? I don't feel that it is all that quiet, if that's what your looking for.

I of course had to wait until payday to get any ammo. By that time there wasn’t any 22 ammo left around here. I did get 100 rounds of 7.62x54r. Things would hav3 to get really bad for me to really burn through that though.
