.22 Ammo shortage revisited

What is it with .22 RF ammo? A few weeks ago I found some CCI Mini Mag for sale and bought a couple of boxes. I'm looking around now and all I can find available is the Remington promotional ammo for four to five times its normal selling price.

None of the LGS's have .22 RF ammo. It's like a switch is being thrown. It's available, it's not available, it's available, it's not available. I don't consider 80-90 buck a brick for cheap promotional ammo as available. I consider that crazy.

Is it that demand has completely outstripped supply? or has the antigun antics of the left drove gun owners over the edge and they're behaving like a bunch of hoarders? Either way I can work around it, and do. Yet I miss the (good old?) days of fully stocked ammo shelves.

It is starting to pop back in here and there around me - but the flippers still snap it up - just a little less quickly now that the price and scare is going away.
I agree. That's what I am seeing here locally for the most part. Saw quiet a bit of CCI this past week and there is still 22 WRM and 17 HMR on the shelf although they have just about sold it all. Its getting better out there availability wise and should be looking a lot better in a couple more months provided this administration doesn't get stupid again. Right now I have quiet a bit still on hand and I aint ready to buy anymore quiet yet. Gonna let the rush on ammo ease before I start buying again. I don't mind pay fair market prices for it but I don't need more enough to pay the elevated prices that often times out there. I guess its just the tight wad in me.
