.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.

22 rf = .22 Rim Fire

I think the shortage right now is a combination of hoarding, and the manufactures are committing most of their resources (brass, lead, powder, production) to filling recently acquired government contracts we keep hearing about. Strange part is that the government contracts are often for HP (hollow point) ammo. Which is as evil a NO NO as using sarin gas if your military!
Still pretty happy with the sight? Considering one for my Mark III.

Might ought to be careful with the mags.
