I was at an auction on sunday and saw 22lr bricks selling for $95,00 each. What is happening to the common sense factor or do people have more money than brains.

It's the same online too.

It's not even the good ammo either. Cheap bulk ammo. Crazy

Simply rule of supply and demand. What I don't understand is the people who are beating up the sellers of the ammo and guns. The buyers are responsible for setting the price.
Do these same people jump on the market when it reverses and supply is abundant. When the poor soul who has spent every penny of his lunch money and has to sell his hoard for 50 cents on the dollar.

Its absolutely retarded. I always keep a qty of around 1500-2000 rounds of 22lr on hand just because you never knew when walmart was going to get the bulk packs in even before this whole hoopla so I have should have enough for the another 12 months or so shooting conservatively. I have a lot of semi 22's to feed and I would go broke trying to shoot them at these prices. People are insane. Just relax for a month or two and it will adjust out. I refuse to pay insane prices for any ammo.

I found a t-shirt that is absolutely perfect.

A local shop has the winchester 333 packs for 57 bucks.... I refuse to pay that much of a premium. That takes all of the fun of shooting 22lrs.

It's actually cheaper to shoot .22 mag right now. Easier to find too.

My local gun shop has boxes of 525 count for $39.99 with a limit of two. And I thought that was too high, WOW there are some crazy prices out there.

I won't pay what these people are selling them for but I can get 50-150 shells when I stop at the local shop for 3.09/50. I got lucky at Walmart today and picked up a 1000 round pack for $48.

I find it interesting how the big retail stores like Cabelas, Dicks, and Walmart still sell their ammo and components at or around pre-Newtown prices. Yet alot of the smaller "Mom & Pop" shops are now 3x to 4x the price.

Good luck, Tony
