Is .22LR Going to be in Short Supply?



Log in to see fewer ads
I have been seeing articles and You Tube videos claiming that rimfire ammo is going to be in very short supply within 3 months and that prices are going be higher than a few years ago. Any thoughts as to the veracity of these claims?

Que up the 'where hae it all gone" and the 'I was at the local X store and they had none' threads.

My LGS has one box of cci shotshells and a brick of Armscor left when I walked out yesterday with the last two boxes(50 each) of Aguilla subsonic. No telling when they'll get more.

Keep in mind that retailers/distributors (and the general public) are still smarting from the last demand crisis. All the web infrastructure/resellers were still in place from last time. We went from 0-60 in about three days this time.

Shortage is a few days upon us. I have 4 cases ordered before I even saw this coming. I'm hoping they are fulfilled. I don't want ammo to stack in a corner. I want to continue to shoot whenever I feel like it, basically every day. No range trips for me. Backyard shooting all the way.

I cannot believe how quickly this happened. I'm stunned.

My Walmart still has almost their full supply of 22 ammo. I could have filled my cart but bought about 600 rounds instead.
China is already coming out of this. I don't think its going to last very long. Sure, its serious, but there's also a lot of hype going on. Remember, up to 60,000 Americans will die in a normal year from the flu. We haven't even reached that worldwide.

I don't know about .22lr, but 9mm is gone! I should have bought the bulk packs of a 1000 for the $159.99 that I was getting email fliers for. I just was able to get a 1000 of 40SW

Totally agree about the seriousness of this. I've also looked at the yearly flu death stats. And that never makes the news. There is something else afoot here, and I'm generally not a conspiracy theorist.

But given how we gun nuts love to worry and prep, combined with an election, I would not bet even one box of Thunderbolts against it.

They're dropping like flies in Iran while demonstrating to the rest of the world how bad it can, or will be unchecked.
