Case of 22LR

Recommended Posts

I've been watching gunbot.net at least once a day for months and buying ammo when a deal showed up.  I've been able to get quite a bit of many different calibers at really good prices.  


I haven't seen a deal in at least 2 months.  I haven't seen .22 in under .10/round in 2 months.  It's as if all of the ammo prices have finally stabilized but at the new higher price.


So up until a couple of months ago, I was still finding deals on .22.  The next gun was going to be a ruger 22/45 but I'm rethinking that now.

Only buy what you need in the near future.  The big price drop is still coming.  As panic buyers dry up from lack of funds the price has to drop.  Once here it won't last long before going up again to settle somewhere between today's prices and the "dip" price.  Sales have to continue.  To many businesses rely on  it.

The other calibers I regularly buy (.38, .357, .45acp & 9mm) have pretty much returned to pre panic (or maybe slightly higher) prices. 22lr is only one that's still consistently overpriced.

I don't think it's panic buying or stockpiling at this point. 10¢ might be the new floor.

I just scored a whole lot of my favorite caliber, .22lr for exactly 9 cents/round, around 9.5 cents after shipping. Armslist, baybee! The seller probably sleeps in the WalMart parking lot. Good for him. I'll sleep at home because I can't get the stuff anywhere else for a reasonable price, and I have a bad, bad habit.

    • Howdy folks.  It's about time we get together to turn some money into noise.  Come join us 6-11-23 at the Clinton WMA shotgun range for a morning of clay busting fun.  Shooting commences at 0900 and keeps going until we get bored, run out of ammo, or hear mom calling us home.    Shoots usually go until about 1300, leaving plenty of time for everyone to stop in at any time and join the party. As always, these clay shoots are informal gatherings, just plain old fun to promote clay sports and encourage training, please feel free to bring friends and family.  Shooters of all experience are welcome, if you have never shot clays before, or want some tips on improving your skills, this is your chance to dust off that shotgun you bought years ago and gain some needed experience. What you will need. Bring your shotgun(s), as much #7.5 or #8 lead target/field loads as you want to shoot, and depending on how much you want to shoot, a carton of clay pigeons would be great.  Targets are usually available at Walmart in Clinton, Flemington, and Phillipsburg.  Don't forget eyes and ears.  Also recommended is a chair, sun screen, insect repellent, and something to drink.  There is a port-a-potty on site If you don't have a shotgun and just want to see what clay shoot'n is all about, a loaner pump action will be available. Basic Checklist Shotgun Ammo Eye and ear protection (mandatory) Clay targets (optional but recommended for volume shooters) Shell pouch (optional) Folding chair (optional) Water or whatever Clinton WMA Shotgun Range 26 New Jersey 173 Hampton, NJ 08827 Attending: 1.  Scorpio (thrower clays and a loaner shotgun) 2.
