    .22LR AMMO AVAILABILITY

    I just started looking for 22lr, I knew it was tight, but what is the average price for 50 rounds and how hard is it to find really ? I have looked around a little bit and really only see 50 rounds of anything going for 10 dollars a box, is that about right ? Is there a good supply at gun shows or are prices pretty high at gun shows ? Or is ammo not there at all ? Has anybody seen a brick of plain white box 22lr ammo , it is made by winchester.I have never seen a plain white box of 500 rounds with OLIN winchester on side of it and that was all. I have been to a lot of gun shows.A very PLAIN WHITE BOX,I am really wondering who buys like this ?

    The cheapest that I've been seeing pretty much everywhere thats in stock recently is between 8c-10c per round (after tax + shipping).

    Well, SGammo seems to have plenty in the $0.08-$0.11 a round range. https://www.sgammo.com/catalog/rimfi...ion/22-lr-ammo

    It's not that prices are up that much, it's just the cheap stuff is gone.

    The plain white box Olin Winchester stuff sounds like milsurp ammo from the CMP or elsewhere. .

    $10 for 50 rounds is about double what I usually pay.
    But after checking my usual online haunts that seems about the going rate. It's been a long time since I've actually had to purchase 22lr from anywhere, so I haven't checked any of my LGS prices.

    Prices at gun shows has been $45/500 (Federal), $10/100 (Winchester), and $5/50 (RWS subsonic, Aguila Super Extra, etc.) for decent-to-good quality 22LR. The cheapest of the cheap is long gone - not that you really want that stuff anyway. There has been some of the more expensive/exotic loadings in the $5 to $10 per 50 range, which is pretty much the same price that it was before the current shortage.

    The Olin white box 22 you mention, if it is what I am thinking of, was standard velocity 22LR allegedly sold through the CMP at some point. The boxes may not be fancy, but the ammo is OK. I bought a brick or two at the beginning of the Sandy Hook shortage and shot some of it. The stuff I had was probably from the 1980s and had some tarnish spots on it where it touched the inside of the cardboard boxes - it shot fine, the tarnished spots didn't make a bit of difference. In my experience it was better than the cheapest of the cheap that you would get in bulk from the various big corporate store chains, so I was reasonably happy with my purchase.

    Overall ammo supply at the gunshows has been pretty good, but prices on the popular items (pretty much any handgun caliber and some rifle calibers) are up. Prices are running about the same as in the online auctions or at the local gunshops (if they even have any stock at all), but the nice thing is that you can get your hands on it immediately without the hassle of shipping, waiting, quantity limits, etc. Prices on the less common stuff are pretty much unchanged, at least for now, until the vendors have to reorder from the distributors at the new higher prices. In comparison, SGAmmo has raised prices on pretty much everything that they have left in stock - popular or not.

    Edited to add: And just as an example, I scored a partial box of .41 AE and a partial box of .32 Long Colt at the South Bend gunshow for the same price I would have expected to pay before the current shortage. Both of the calibers have long been discontinued, so I'm happy to find even partial boxes if the per round price is right.
