    This is disgusting...a couple of months ago I bought 550 rounds of Federal 22 Long HP at Walmart for $23.00 and change...Now they don't even have any...every time I go ..they are out...just some odd ball cartridges...This is gouging and I can't believe we are all taking it so easy....This is the gun control...right ? I mean what good is a gun with no bullets...? Just that simple...I refuse to be robbed...I will wait...sure glad I was anticipating this a long time ago - I have to say ...I did not anticipate the outrageous price gouging that clemsonfor mentioned $249.00 for the same 550 rounds I paid $23.00 for....They should lock that merchant up...Just like the guy that sells gas for $6.00 a gallon when there is a hurricane....Venting ...Sorry..

    The last .22 ammo I bought was when Bi-Mart had the 500 round bricks in the coupon book for $7.99. That's been a few years ago, wish I had a pallet of it out in the shop right now.

    And yet, not one person has posted here that works in an ammunition factory? With the demand so high for so long just about everyone here should have a cousin or a cousin's friend that works at a ammunition plant and just came by to show off his new 4x4 truck........weird ain't it?

    I got 500 brick of .22 for $30 at that local gun shop I mentioned. Dunham's sporting goods is selling 525 for around $20 when they get them in.

    Yep, I have stayed away from Remington Thunderbolts for the same reason, never thought they were very good quality. The crimps still suck like they did 25 years ago... bullets wobble easily in the case etc.

    I have been buying the Federal bulk packs for quite a while but this SR22 pistol just does not like them. Primarily Failure to Feed (action cycles but doesn't pick up the next round from the magazine). Not one FTF with the Remington ammo, I notice they feel like they still have either case lube or some kind of shipping wax on them. I am thinking that helps the rounds slide in the magazine. As a test I might spray down some Federals with case lube and then shoot them and see if that helps the feed issue. Not that I want to have to do that with my .22 ammo but I think it would be an interesting experiment.

    Last Remington I bought was about 8 years ago, I think the FTR rate was approaching 10%. Those were the "golden bullets" and I think that was I know in one or 2 of my rifles one being a marlin 60 and possibly my ruger mk3 22/45, but I am not entirely sure I had that gun at that point. Hickock45 reported similar results on one of his videos on youtube. I have not bought them since that brick. But I would buy them in a second right now.

    I just saw an ad posted on a local trading post here that wanted to buy .22 ammo. Says they will take all you have and pay top dollar. Never seen this before.

    I think you boy's need to take up air rifles or learn to reload.

    Cartridges like the 22 Hornet, 32 SW Long, 38sp, 357mag can be shot for around .03 per round if you cast your own bullets and buy your supplies right.( Not now) And are good scrounger's for lead.

    At today's ammo prices it wouldn't take many rounds to pay for a reloading set-up and a few molds.
