I found the reason there are no 22LR on the shelves...greedy bastards, plain and simple. I usually hit Gunbroker.com every day because I'm looking for a 28 gauge SXS. So today I decided to check on 22LR ammo for a change. There are tens of thousands of rounds available. Lots of value packs even full cases of 5000+ rounds. Here's the catch, a 525 Federal value pack for example used to sell for less than $20. Now you have to shell out closer to $100 for the same box. It's terribly obvious to me that lots of folks bought cases of this stuff just to make huge profits off other shooters. I say stuff it up their asses. Don't by these inflated prices. Let their great inventory sit until the ammo shows up on the shelve of stores again. Then support the shops and buy from them, screw the gougers. I'm putting most of my shooting on hold except for shotguns. I'm patient (and have lots of other chores) and will wait out the shortage before I pay these stupid prices. I encourage you to go to GB and search "22LR" and see what I mean. There is no "shortage" at all.
