    Search for .22LR ammo problematic

    I've been burning through my .22LR ammo to the tune of over 1000 rounds per week.
    Getting the outdoor range (MCFG) hadn't helped any, that's for sure since it opened up a new world for shooting rifles.

    A member told me he stops by Walmart everyday & get his 2 box allotment (usually larger boxes).
    I was running around yesterday so I stopped at Walmart on E 82nd St. near where I used to live: NONE!
    I then went to the Walmart on E Pendleton: NONE!!
    I was going to go to the Walmart on E Washington but I gave up on the idea

    Today I stopped by the Walmart on Emerson where it intersects with E 465: NONE!!!
    I then went to the Walmart off 31 & by the Greenwood Mall: Got 3 of the last 4 packs of 100 rounds of Mini-Mags (8 cents per round w/tax).
    I forgot to go to the Walmart where Emerson & County Line Intersects.
    I stopped by the Rural King that was past the Greenwood Mall and they had 3 kinds of ammo, but there was a line of about 10 people & I had to get to Shelbyville so I couldn't wait.

    On my way to Shelbyville to return zackcz's Savage 2 rifle I stopped by their Walmart & bought 2 packs of Winchester 333 (5.5 cents each w/tax).
    There was a Rural King nearby & I stopped by & they allowed 4 items & & only had some Federal match (boxes of 50), about 11 cents each.

    While I was there I bought the Springfield Armory XD-S Mod 2 9mm 3.3" Barrel XDSG9339S ($380) since I've never had a Springfield and I wanted to try one out (came with a 7 & 9 rd mags) b/c I held it in my hand ().
    Reminded me of the Kahr & Shield feel in my hand.

    Looks like SGAmmo has 5000 rd cases of Geco but it won't last long.

    Also Aquila at Buds.

    I'm glad I bought the fed black packs back in Nov.

    I keep mine stocked at around 10,000 rounds and I don't shoot that much 22LR. If you shoot 1,000 rounds a week (Holy Cow) you are either going to have to cut back on your habit a little or pay a high premium. Fortunately for you 22LR is a lot easier to find than 9MM or .380 right now. This pandemic and protests have made it hard for us shooters.

    I started keeping records in my Day-Timer since since last of April.
    I did this in order to get a grasp on how much I should cut back.
    I'm averaging 2.5 visits per week to the range & averaging 1000 rds per week for the past 14 weeks.
    I can shoot less per range visit (by shooting 200 rds instead of 400 rounds on average per visit & by shortening my hours there & only going on average of twice per week (once per week if things meltdown).

    Weekly rounds shot the last few weeks:
    - 1200
    - 1000
    - 500
    - 2400
    - 1600
    - 900
    - 600
    - 600
    - 700
    - 1600
    - 1100
    - 400 (so far this week, but going at least 1 maybe 2 more times).

    I will cut back as needed b/c I will not pay the "high premium."

    I'm trying to guy ammo but it's wanting me to put an FFL in for some reason?

    Edit: I found the problem. There was a gun in my cart & I had to remove it rather than put "0" down as a quantity I had to completely remove it from the cart.
    Bought 5000 rounds of the Aguila, it has been more accurate than CCI in my rifles.

    I'm glad I'm not the only person that shoots that much. My passion is Steel Challenge, I shoot matches and inbetween, I practice a lot. I will go to the range 3 to 4 times a week and often shoot a 500 count box of ammo on each visit. Then are the matches, a 6 stage match requires a minimum of 150 rounds, throw in some misses and you have shot 200 rounds (per gun/ I usually shoot 2 guns at the match RFPI and RFRO). So, an average week I shoot 2000 rounds in practice and 400 rounds in a match. It might be cheaper if I go back to my old passion, playing golf. Most months I go thru around 9 to 10,000 rounds. I started shooting these type matches back in 2010 or 2011. During the Obama years ammo was hard as hell to find and got expensive. I learned a lesson, after O left office, ammo became more abundant and reasonably priced. I STOCKED up, I would buy by the CASE. I love TargetSportsUSA, I have the prime membership which saves 5% and gets you free shipping. A lot of the ammo I shoot cost me between .03 a round to .09 a round. I shoot the cheap stuff in practice and the CCI Mini Mags in Matches.

    Maybe I should dust off the old scroll die press and crank out some .22LR
    But then again, that means updating my licence and I'm not sure I want to go through that again. Major PITA.

    Maybe just 300,000 or 400,000 for myself...
