I would have to kill 3 squirrels with each shot to justify that.

People need to just calm down. They are not banning ammo! We are making this shortage ourselves!

When it does mellow out, there are gonna be a LOT of people with a bad case of buyer's remorse!

I mean, could you imagine??? The rate of that auction puts it at $78/box...If it were me, the next week, every WalMart in the nation would have it for the regular $21.99!

All I know is this BS is cutting in to my shooting. I signed up for a pistol class at the end of the month and it will cut my 9mm stash down a good bit. I cannot wait around at Academy every morning for a truck to show up, so I get what I can when I can. I'm not going to order online because it probably won't make it here in time for the class.

I was looking at getting in to reloading before all this crap started, and I'm kind of glad I didn't. I would have tools sitting there with no supplies to reload. Once the panic dies down I can promise you I will NEVER be caught in this pickle again.

Only pain I am feeling is not shooting my AR's anymore, I love my 15-22 but it is not the same. Since I manufacture bullets, have access to OEM primers and have brass stacked to the top of the closet I a set on Pistol ammo. Now .22 I can't make, so that causes a different problem, but I do have 15k coming at pre craze prices and always kept a floor of about 5k rounds, usually more. I am shopping for machinery to make precision rifle bullets, so that won't be an issue for the next scare, and I am strongly considering getting some automated loading equipment for ammo manufacture, only thing holding me back is sourcing and processing brass...

I'd have to question how he came about getting that 21k rounds. He has another auction with 2500 rounds of .223 Rem. Smells fishy to me.

Yeah, I bought my AR as a toy and, can't make myself go shoot it right now because of these ridiculous prices. Makes me sick really!

If you are looking for automation, I have a friend that has several machines for pistol ammo. They are for sale so, if it's of interest to you, drop me a line and, I'll get you set up with him. I wanted to buy his equipment but, right now isn't a good time for me to come off of the $ to purchase.

Why are so many people buying .22LR ammo? I just don't know anyone that really shoots a .22 that often... maybe a little for small game stuff but it's certainly not a great self defense round and won't do a whole lot of good in a SHTF scenario. This is the one that doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me.

In a SHTF scenario the .22 is your food source. Your .223 is for protection. U can fetch a lot of food wit a .22

Its a craze, the 10/22 is the closest platform of an AR so everybody bought into the .22 craze, its coming back slowly, when these cc bills arrive some wives are gonna whoop some arse lol, .22 arent for protection and the guns arent either but the guns and ammo are cheap when you find it at a retail store for the most part, when it catches back up in 6 mon or so it will be all over the place....good luck buying, im still buying 223 and 556 at .35-.40 a rd and .22 for .5-.6 a round, so its out there......thank your pres. you voted for
