    Angry 22LR Ammo Prices Are Going Up

    I finally found a box of 22LR ammo at Wally-mart today, Winchester 555 round box of 36gr hollow point. $23.17 plus tax. The clerk said it just went up by at least $2 a box. Some gun prices and other ammo calibers have also gone up already. I did notice that their 336W was still at $387, so I'm not sure which rifle prices have gone up. I would guess it would be the mini-14's and stuff.

    Are ammo prices going up in your neck of the woods? The clerk said that when this new stock was put on the shelves the prices went up. I wonder if the prices will go up every time they restock the shelves...

    My local bait shop, where I can get ammo and other needed items like reloading supplies, has lower prices than the big name stores. They are just honest poeple. Prices haven't gone up, just demand. They are a little low on firearms though. A lot of empty slots in the gun racks.
    Also, I can order through a regional supplier of reloading supplies, which I have done, and this weekend at the gun show my order will be avaliable for me to pick up. With the pre-order they give a discount on their normal prices, which have not risen of late. More honest poeple, not higher prices.

    It looks like the USA powers-that-be are trying to catch up with you guys. I looked at an older box of 550 rounds of Federal 22LR and it was a whopping$8.88 (the price tag is still on the box). 30-30 was only $7.97 twenty years ago, now it's $15.97 or $17.97 for 170gr RN Remingtons at Wally-mart.

    You guys have it a lot worse in Australia. No one here in the USA will contest that, and we all hate the situation you are in because it could happen anywhere.

    Same here in our neck of the woods. 22 ammo is non- existant at big box store & LGS.
