    22LR @ Walmart

    Walking through Walmart yesterday I saw 100 round boxes of Remington Golden Bullet ammo just sitting on top of the gun counter. Now I don't frequent Walmart often, it's the Walmartians don't ya know, when I noticed them @ $7.97ea, as I recall. It's the first time in years I've seen them on the counter where you could grab a box or 10 and take them to the register. There was at least 50 boxes out and this was about 2pm.

    That's good news for the rest of us. Seems like the supply is building back up to pre-BHO days!!

    It sure is coming back a lot slower than I ever thought it would. For a while there I was seeing it more, and cheaper, but now hardly at all.

    I need to qualify that a little. Cabela's has a shelf full of .22lr, but it's all too rich for my blood.

    I just bought a 500 round brick of Winchester for about $26 at our Walmart. First I have seen in Wally World in 8 or 9 years.

    $26.00 for a "brick"? Ouch. I think the last brick I bought was $12.00, and I thought that was highway robbery as I had paid $8.00 for the previous brick.

    Obviously I didn't shoot a lot of .22 before His Imperial Executiveness's reign drove the prices to astronomical levels.

    That's $6 above the previous normal price. I see people mentioning prices below $15 all the time. It hasn't been that price in well over a decade. $20 was the norm before it disappeared. Not the greatest price. But when you have children that shoot cases of it that price is tolerable.

    +1 on this. I can remember paying 49 cents for a 50 round box of cheap Federal promotional loads. In 1978. And they were on sale. I figure at least a nickel a shot will be the going rate for .22 ammo for a while.

    Just saw one of those 1400 count pails of 22`s go on an on line auction for just over $100, a drop from those days when it would have gotten near or above $150.Robert

    I purchased 2 "525" bricks at a show a few weeks back for $30 each, I didn't really need them but I picked them up anyways because even though I've switched to .38 spl for my plinking caliber I still have .22's and who knows what next week could bring with shortages and scares

    I bought a little over 12K rounds of federal at 5.6 cents a shot just a couple weeks ago.
    My daughter is getting into handgun shooting and thought I should stock up.
    This should last her until she switches to centerfire.

    I cast for all of them.

    I could be wrong, but it seems to me that 22LR was $10.00 a brick from about 1980 until about 2008.

    I was happy to pay $20.00 for a brick of CCI Blazer from 2010-2012, and I'd gladly pay that price again. In the meantime, I'll keep casting for @ 5 cents a round in mind.

    The last time I seen 22lr in walmart was about over 3 weeks ago. now the last I seen they are all gone. They where about $26 but did not need them. I past on them. If the price drop more then I will see about getting them. I use them mainly on my trap line and do not look for the high price ones. Regular target ones work for me.

    Most of that decade I didn't see any
    Actually the only 22 I saw on the shelves during Obama's entire tenure was 80 bucks for a brick of subsonic and that was...oh 6 years in. Before that I remember seeing it for 12 bucks. I think you're right though 20-26 is the new normal, last I paid for was 10 bucks for a hundred so I'll still be happy.

    I remember back in '70's it was about the same price to shoot my .357 with cast at little over a penny each... primer was $10/1,000, and powder was cheap, lead was just laying around so I figured a tad over penny per round..... about the same price as .22 LR at the time at little over penny/round. Well, it's about same price now - primers at $40/1,000, powder costs a bit more and lead has to be purchased most times so I figure it's 6 or 7 cents per round for my .357 cast bullet reloads..... about the same as 22LR. Inflation affects everything.
