Ouch!

I was just on SGammo's website, and they are asking $100.95 for a 200ct box of CCI A-22 35gr. ammo.

I bought some last summer at Bud's for less than $35 for the same 200ct. box of ammo. I know that prices have gone up a bit, but triple the price ain't gonna git it for me.

Both of my .22 WMR rifles really like this load, almost as much as the Hornady 30gr. stuff, but they don't like it THAT much.

I don't blame SG Ammo, either, someone, somewhere, in the supply pipeline ain't playin' with a full deck, though.

I guess I'll just wait 'em out and see if I can find some more Hornadys, or wait until Academy gets some, their prices have gone up, too, but not triple.

I could have a little more on hand..But at that price what I have will suffice for now..

Local Gun Shows are usually in the 17.00 range for the lowest price sellers..I leave that there too.

I don't know. IMO, the dollar is not going to get any more valuable. Your betting on who can make more faster; the Federal Reserve, or the cartridge manufacturers?

I have been trying to reassess my comprehension of the $s future value. If the Trillion dollar budget passes, I suspect that there will be a run, but not only on bullets. I hope I'm wrong.

A lot of upward pressure on prices now, shipping is just one of many. This in addition to an extreme supply/demand imbalance, and a tight labor market.

Do not expect prices to come down for a long, long, well, never.

Nah, I have no idea whether prices will ease, but ammunition buying habits make it unlikely. How many thousands of people are clicking refresh at any given moment, checking inventory?

Or large dang rifle primers grrrrrr

A couple of weeks ago I was in the local farm and ranch store and they had 3 boxes of CCI 40 grain at $12.95 a box so I bought them all and wished they had more. Gougers abound. I will do with out before I pay their prices.

Printing more and more money with NOTHING of value to back it results in Every Dollar In Circulation Being Worth Less, evermore toward Worthless.
Prices come down? History Repeatedly shows that with the above scenario that does not happen.
They have sown the wind, we will reap the whirlwind.

It's funny how pictures pop up here with old 70s prices on bricks of 22s for $7.99 that were in the "back of the closet" I don't know we will see prices in the $12s or $15s for 22 mag until we get a new admin that supports domestic energy production and some resulting deflation or you start hunting all the estate sales for deals on other peoples ammo that the family doesn't want after they pass. I'd say $20/box is probably where a lot of 22 mag ammo will end up with the current inflation. There is always a chance that domestic buying will cool and prices will drop to move inventory but I wouldn't hold my breath. I think the last 22 mag I bought was $7.50 on close out for winchester JHP 40 grain. It's probably been 4 or 5 years ago. 22 mag is the least used of my rimfires. If I were you I'd ration my mag ammo and shoot the more economical stuff when it makes sense to do so.

What RC said..... "If I were you I'd ration my mag ammo and shoot the more economical stuff when it makes sense to do so."


I do the same with the .17 as well when the prices are high, though as much as i like shooting the mag and the .17, i keep my focus on the .22 stuff...next the pellets

Ive been using my air-guns a Lot this year, happily and with pleasure. ALL shooting is good practice!
It seems to be paying off (more than just far cheaper pellets), when I pull out a 22 rifle it all comes together pretty quick

Made a pretty big leap into PCP's this year, .25 Hatsan 44-10QE, .22 Air Venturi Avenger and just this past week a Daystate Huntsman Revere in .25, .22 pellets of quality are plentiful, .25's a bit harder to come by. 25 yard range in backyard makes regular practice easy.

Ammo prices

Not surprising, good .22mag like CCI has always been priced close to 9mm, and last time I was at Academy their cheap 9mm was running $17-$20 a box.

A quick peek on Ammoseek.com still shows CCI as the cheapest .22wmr available, same price as Armscor. So if Iím paying that price at least CCI has always been noticeably better quality ammo than Armscor.

Now if Armscor comes down to $12-$14 a box, Iíd buy some.
Iím scared to see what Hornady or Speer Gold Dot .22wmr is going for these days.

Iíve bought a lot of 7.62x39, 5.45x39 & 6.5 Grendel steel case from Sam at SGAmmo over the years but never rimfire, heís never been priced as low as other sources.
