    Is there a 22 Magnum Ammo Shortage??

    As I mentioned a few days ago, I'm new to the forum and to owning a Marlin 22 Mag. Has there always been a shortage of 22 Mag ammo? Or is the stock depleted for other reasons? Many of the online sources are "Out of Stock" of the many different types. Some only have rat shot in stock.

    All ammo is in high demand. A friend tried to order some Winchester 40 grain 22WMR last week (a case, no less) and was told the distributors were sold out.~Andrew

    It is incredibly hard to find ammo online unless you want to get scalped. This reminds me of last year when I was trying to find large rifle primers. Whew!

    Re: Is there a 22 Magnum Ammo Shortage??

    I finally picked up my (new to me) Marlin model 783 last week and had a hard time finding ammo for it. I did find some available at Bass Pro in Orlando. Got to take it to the range and had a great time.

    I've been looking online for more ammo and everyone I've tried has been sold out

    Seems to be. I've had some Winchester Super X on order for months...

    I get much better prices online...including shipping...than if I went to the local store.

    It seems that here in California the .22 WMR ammo is easy enough to acquire but can be costly. Wally World gets shipments fairly often and it's inexpensive but it all sells out in the same day. I will have to stock up when I get the chance. I did notice that all the .22 ammo tends to disappear when the weather warms up...
