I've had luck at Dick's (two 1400 round buckets at $0.05 per round) and my LGS has been pretty regular with 50 round boxes at $0.10 and $0.12 per round. Six months ago we scored 2k of Winchester M22 for $0.05 per round and it wasn't the recalled batches although a friend of mine got some from a gun show that was recalled.

I wish I had bought a pick-up truck load of Federal 550 packs when they were $13....three short years ago! I saw the same ammo recently in Vinton Va for $59.95.

Around here most other ammo is readily available

We have Two Super Wal-Marts in town. Talk with the clerk in sporting goods. Find out what days they normally get ammo in.

Here they put out ammo at around 7 AM. You need to be in line in the sporting goods area around 5:30 or 6:00 AM and when they have 22 LR the limit is 3 boxes. With stuff like Winchester M-22 that gives you a total of 3,000 rounds and a good price point.

You can get everything but .22 here easily at normal prices. .22 is still hard to get and usually non-existent on shelves.

Not sure why .22 has gone insane. Perhaps "baby's first gun, the sky is falling, a .22 will save me" hoarders.

I can get 9mm at Wal-Mart with ease, so all is well for me.

Just get a bigger caliber gun and your ammo worries will be gone.

Thanks for the links....any idea what's with the absolute unavailability of Aguila's Supermax hyper velocity rounds? Some places don't even list it anymore...

I don't want to spend money on another gun...I bought .22s because the ammo was always so cheap and readily available...the joke's on me I guess...

I don't blame you. I remember not too long ago going to gun shows (around 2010) and .22s and the ammo for them was everywhere. You could buy .22 in huge quantities no problem then. At the time I considered getting a .22 as cheap plinker, but my Ruger P89 satisfied my shooting interest, so I never bought one.

I think when people started freaking about "they 'gon take the guns away," a lot of people snatched up .22s and the ammo for them, and it has yet to subside. One day .22 will be available and relatively inexpensive again, but the panic will have to fully subside for that to happen. What sucks is people aren't dumping all this .22 ammo at the range...it's sitting around, doing nothing. Plenty of it is out there, crazy hoarders just have a lock on it.

My uncle has plenty (bought a pallet a couple years ago), but I did notice that .22LR is in short supply lately. I wonder if companies are making other calibers instead...?

From what I've gathered there's just as much .22 ammo being made as ever, it's just that the hoarders are snatching it all up...what I don't understand is why manufacturers won't bump up production to try and ease the pinch a bit...

Okay, here's an easy fix for the ammo shortage. Create a national database that lists the person's name and amount of ammo they purchase, and limit the amount a person can buy per month, week, whatever. This database must be used by any place authorized to sell ammo, and the person's ammo purchases are logged into the database no matter when, or where they purchase. This would stop the hoarding...I've been saying all along, if those who are in positions to resolve this issue wanted it resolved, it would've been resolved by now...this isn't rocket science...

What I've read is that manufacturers are already running 3 shifts, producing it 24/7, but profit margins on .22LR are so thin, it doesn't make sense for the manufacturers to invest in more equipment to make it.

Come on Grampi; we fought for the right to be a greedy, ugly, American. A little self control and we could all go shooting our .22s.
I remember when we could get a sleeve of .22 for $100. in Tucson at the annual Jenson's sale. Wish I'd have hoarded some of that stuff instead of shooting it all up.

If people had self control there wouldn't be any hoarders...

Do you really want the government controlling how much ammo we buy? Call me crazy, but that sounds like a policy a lot of anti gun people would support.

You REALLY wish more government control over your life????????????????

Unreal that you would even post this.

What do you want next, the government to only allow single shot firearms so ammo will last longer till its all shot up?
