Yes, those are them. They shoot reasonably well in my Savage MKII FSS.

Yes sir. We have several .22's here at the house and kids love to shoot. I was afraid that prices would not be that low again so I bought all they had.

WOW!!! As I noted, we are flush with them up here shrug

They also got in skids of 1,000 round boxes of Federal .308.

For some reason I do believe that makes you happy.

Nor can you make any noise with your large collection.

I will become a .22 ammo hoarder when the bubble bursts on this ammo buying and all of these people who bought tens of thousands of rounds with the intent of selling it at inflated prices are forced to sell it at rock bottom prices...except I will be buying it with the intent of shooting it all!

On the gun forums there are many who are lamenting the shortage of gun powder, which is a fairly recent development.

I guess it took a rocket science professor to realize this might be coming especially with the long lasting shortage of .22's.

I hope you see the hypocrisy in that and understand if you had it your way, the government wouldn't allow it.........

I see it, but since my suggestion will likely never happen...

I have not seen any 22 ammo in any store in this area in several months. When I ask it is the same story. Either it is gone within a few hours of them putting it out. Or they have not been able to get any.

For some reason the Midwest seems to be the hardest hit with the .22 shortage...I haven't been able to find in MI, IN, OH, or IL either...

I've switched from Winchester to locally made Bronzewing cartridges for my shotgunning. About 1 - 2 case per month .
