My wife and I were at the St. Louis Cabelas yesterday afternoon and found piles of 22 LR on the shelf including many boxes of CCI standard velocity and CCI "Quiet" rounds. Just FYI.
That's been the norm here in middle Georgia for about a year now. That being said, I just about fainted Yesterday morning when I was FINALLY able to by a 550 round bulk box of Federal copper plated HP's at "Wally World"!We've not had 22 for way over a year. I've caught a couple of reasonably priced ones online, but the frustration is such I won't be getting a target 22 like I had planned.
Something I've been saying for a good while now, as well as telling retailers just that. I've also heard of another or two switching policies lately.Sportsman's Warehouse in Vancouver,WA has put out a sign stating that .22 amunition will no longer be available on Thursday morning's at the CS counter. But will instead be put out on the shelf in small lot's and at different time's. I don't know about limit's or if the decision is from corporate or individual store's manager's. This sound's like a tactic to break the scalper's supply chain.
No offense meant and you are ofc free to buy as much ammo as you want/can but what you just said really kind of illustrates part of the problem lately with the ammo shortage, in the past people would go in and buy 1 or 2 bulk packs because that's all they NEEDED and they knew if they ran out they could just go back and get some more, these days when ppl see ammo they feel they have to get all they possible can when they see even if they have ammo at home and don't NEED it.I agree it is getting a little better.I stopped at Wallyworld before work the other morning and got the three box limit of Winchester 22 lr in 333 rds.There were still several boxes left,so I had my helper go in and get me three more.Wish I had met my other guy in the Walmart lot.Woulda sent him in too!
I love American Eagle, in all calibers, I just feel its good reliable clean ammo for a good price.I've passed by a lot of 22 ammo lately. Unless it's target ammo or some new bulk ammo
that I haven't tried I have no more need for the inaccurate stuff.
The LGS has had American Eagle on the shelf at a normal price for over a week now.
