Default Where is all the .22LR ammo going?

Rimfire ammo has been scarce on store shelves for well over 2 years now. When you you think it will return to its previous availability (if ever), and why? (And if not, why not?)

Prices around here haven't been too bad, some places still limit to 3 boxes, people hoarding.

I suspect there is a pen and a phone behind it all.
Seems there have been federal gun grabs as well, done in secret and ignored by the liberal media.
And so called fair value for the desecration of our rights established as fair.
Hope and change to free you all .. from freedom.

The government gun control via ammo buy outs? IDK, maybe the shortage of brass make the manufacture dedicate what is on hand to the most profitable (223/556)?

They are not so secret. They put out ads to manufacturers letting them know how big their orders are and they are seeking quotes.


As far as 22LR, its plentiful here. Even Walmart always has some on the shelf.

But I live in a pro gun state. Which is awesome.

Here's a taste.
And before you go off on legalities I remind you of the amendment rights they violate as they were passed behind closed doors with no provisions to the public as to what is in them.

Before I go off on an inconvenient formality called legality you mean? Right? Skimming through some of the links (LOL@ infowars) none of the seizures seemed illegal. Who wants loonies and violent spouses to have weaponry? Doesn't seem sensible. What IS fucking criminal is law enforcement destroying or selling confiscated property before all precedings are concluded.

Same thing has been happening for decades to people only accused of selling pot or tax evasion. IRS/DEA taking homes and cars and selling them off before trial.

Still, though, not much verifiable on the "secret grabs" you're pounding the keyboard over.

Our Walmarts get a modest shipment of just a couple basic SKUs weekly, and it sells out within hours. We haven't seen anything sitting on the shelf longer than a couple days for 29 months. Haven't seen CCI Velocitor for two years. No Winchester Power Point for over two years. And Montana is a pro gun state. Customers in from road trips across the country say that every store they visited in every state was out.

Is it shipped/sold out more frequently east of the Mississippi I wonder? Two years' full production swallowed whole by hoarders is a LOT of ammo. I wonder when the hoarders will look at their stashes and say, "Well, that's enough..."

We've got one store that has some all the time, but they charge $60 for a brick of Federal Champion. It makes 2/10 customers happy to get it, and pisses off 8/10 because they're gouging everyone.

Well it does seem like this has gone on quite a long time, I mean how long does it take for supply to catch up to demand. It's not like 22LR got popular all the sudden, it has always been popular. Nor does it have any real military use. The only thing that seems to be driving the shortage is a small increase in demand, and no increase in supply. Kinda seem like the ammunition manufacturers don't care, why would they profit is probably at a all time high, the shit is sold before it gets off the truck.
