For 3 years or more now my searches for .22 ammo have all been failures...my daughter likes to go to the shooting range with the old man (the old man likes it too, when she doesn't outshoot me)....doesn't seem to matter if I look locally, online, Wal-Mart, gun shops, wherever, they're always out...I would've thought this issue would be resolved by now....strange that it isn't....

I just came from my local Academy, I bought 7.62 x 39 and 40S&W but they had several 500 rd. "Bricks" of 22 cal. and quite a bit of smaller 50 round boxes on the shelf behind the counter.

Production would have to outpace demand from hoarders. That'd be a tall order, especially given that hoarders won't be happy unless they've bought everything there is to buy...

I can buy ammo in any caliber... As long as it's not .22LR!

I have not seen .22LR in decent quantities for a reasonable price in a long time. My only gun that shot .22LR before the tragic canoeing accident was a S&W M&P15-22, that thing was super picky with ammo and only played well with Winchester M-22 which is currently unobtainium.

As far as the other firearms lost in the canoeing accident, .40S&W, .223/5.56x45, 5.7x28, .308/7.62x51 is plentiful. I was pleasantly surprised when Bass Pro had 5.7x28 for 29.99 a box of 50 and had a whole shelf of it. I currently am in a group buy of 5.56x45 at $347/1000 for Fiohcci.

9mm, .40, .45 and .223/5.56 is pretty easy to come by here compared to last year at this time.

I haven't been able to find .22 ammo since last May. Bought 3 bricks at WM for my stash and haven't shot any of them. Lol.

The goofy hoarders and end of civilization doomsday dorks buy every single round of .22LR that is produced.
Fear is a powerful driving force, much more so than intellect and reason.

I used to buy 1000 round boxes at rural king for like $15 a couple years ago. Nothing that good since.

A couple methods that worked for me, that you may try.

First, one sporting goods store told me that they don't mind if I call to see if they have inventory of .22. They even told me what time to call, so the delivery truck would have already came for the day. It took about a week and a half of calls, and they got in a bunch of Federal. My wife picked me up at work and we each went and bought a carton.

The second method that worked, is another sporting goods store allowed people to prepay for .22. When shipments came in, those that had prepaid got first choice, in a first paid, first served order. That took a couple months, but still, it worked.

Now, I have enough .22 that my wife and I can go to the range every few weeks, and I'm not in a panic about running out. My stock of about 4 cartons is by no means a hoard.

It used to be my practice that all I kept on hand was a single carton, just enough to go shooting with. I always figured I could always pick up another carton almost anywhere for only $10 or $15, so why stock it. I'll never make that mistake again. But, I'm not going to be one of those @$$'$ that buy up everything they can find, and then sell it online for a profit.

If you are desperate enough, that is an option. I don't know what is available in Ohio, but here in Utah we have a website called utahguns.com, dedicated to sales of guns and related items. Jerks sell ammo there all the time for a big markup. You may see if you can buy a brick there. It may cost you $40 to $50, but at least you can take your daughter shooting.

I get lucky at Dicks sporting goods.

I sometimes have to wait in a line.

I get to the store 20- 30 minutes before they open. Wait till the store opens, go in and usually they have the larger amounts 2 times a week.
I call ahead and ask when the ammo shipment is due. If you get a good sales person they will give you all the information you need.

The bad part is they limit you to 1 purchase over 300 round or 3 smaller boxes.

I have gotten lucky and have a few thousand round for shooting.

.22 ammo has gotten really expensive.

I used to buy the Federal 550 round bricks at Wally World about 4 years ago for $11.99...now the price listed on the always empty shelf for this stuff is $23.99...which I would pay if it were ever available...this has gone beyond ridiculous!

Do they sell the Federal 550 round bricks, or any Aquila LRs (no subs)?

I think they have 50 round boxes of federal occasionally. Mostly Winchester, Remington ammo. I have some hollow point too. Some times they have the good CCI LR in the 100 round plastic box.

If I have waited in line I try to make the most of my time and buy 2000k ammo can or 1500 round bucket.
