This pretty much echoes much of what I've already read a number of other places. There are a lot more shooters out there, so that means there is more demand for ammo. I hope things get better, soon, as far as availability, but I'm not going to hold my breath.

Thanks for the heads up.
I do like the discussion of them bringing online additional production lines. That is a good sign that at least as far as CCI is concerned, more ammo may make it to the home owner's shelves to satisfy the "I don't have enough ammo for the next election" feeling.

And when it does, I look forward to the downwards slope of the pricing curve to hit. Should be an interesting couple of years.... However, I am likely to observe the last half of it outside the country in the Philippines. Retirement is on the way !!

Increasing capacity isn't easy. Remington's Lonoke, AR factory should have a new line up and running in by June if 2014, and hopefully by the end of summer the increased supply will be hitting the shelves.

And it's a huge risk to increase capacity ... if the bottom falls out of demand after a firm has sunk millions of dollars into new capacity it can bankrupt the company.

Even though I don't want it More Remington on the shelf means less buyers for the other brands.

I really think Aladdin in on to something! If there is lots of Remington .22 LR on the shelves, the less knowledgeable folks will buy it, particularly if the price is relatively low, leaving better quality stuff (if/when it finally begins to reappear) for the rest of us. Then let them try to sell the Remington stuff on the Net!

I dont see much 22 ammo on Gunbroker for sale,what is for sale is overpriced as always maybe there worried a bunch of ammo is going to hit the market or maybe the scalpers can't find ammo either.

I personally enjoyed the low velocity Stinger suggestion the most.

Actually, although the "golden bullets" and the thunderbolts aren't much, I do believe the Yellow Jackets, subsonics and Target rounds are a cut above their other .22 rounds..
No that doesn't make them CCIs, but they are better than the bulk of their rounds.

Let's hope if they get new machinery..they will also turn over a new leaf in the quality department.

Yep. Everyone bought a .22 to save money shooting as much and as fast as they could. Then they went out and bough every last box of ammo they could find because they were afraid it was going to be taken away.

Supply will catch up. Look at how much .223 ammo is on the shelves! MORE than before all the madness!

.22lr demand will not disappear though. Its still cheap to shoot, quieter, and you can carry a lot more with you to the range/backyard. I'd sure like Wolf MT to become available again. I'd like to get a case ordered... the 10/22 loves the stuff Too bad I'll have to order through a gunshop thanks to NYS forced laws.
