Rimfire Ammo Update: Buy as Much as You Wish!

Whatever their personal political leanings might be, hunters, target shooters and plinkers alike have cause for at least a minor celebration these days. The reason for their delight is that many sporting goods retailers, such as well-known outfitter Cabela’s, have lifted a long-standing restriction on the quantity of certain types of ammunition that can be purchased in one transaction.

Yesterday I ordered 3k rounds of CCI SV from Midway, just under $300 shipped, right now I'm okay with nominally $0.10/round for stuff that is reasonably accurate and works in just about every rifle I have

I'm waiting on the RWS importer to get his shipment in from Germany. Its over 2 weeks late. Match grade never went away and prices have stayed pretty close to 3-4 years ago. I have to lot test for ammo for this upcoming bench rest season. Standard grade .22 have been plentiful here for quite a while. From local stores its always a little higher than on-line dealers, but lots of it. The highest prices are at the PX at Ft. Leonard Wood. No more breaks for military there. Same goes for their sporting goods/tools, ect.

I wish things would get a little more back to normal around here. The LGS prices are on the steep side still and not much of a selection and getting it at Walmart is about impossible unless you're there on delivery day,which isn't a set day,and they still have a limit of 3.

I have a Dick's Sporting Goods right around a mile away from me in Willow Grove Mall...

Bought way over 40,000 rounds of .22 long rifle between July 2016 and January 2017...

Current Inventory Spreadsheet say I currently have 38,100 rounds...or 76.36 Bricks ( 500 per brick ).

Should hold me for awhile...

You could be right but I think they sold out here quicker because they don't call this the gunshine state for nothing. :)

Talked to the RWS importer yesterday. The shipment is in Atlanta. Came by train from the Shipping Port. Now they have to unload it, find a truck carrier and get it to Alabama. He told me to call back Tuesday and they will have it sorted and inventoried and ready for orders. I plan on getting 10 lots of R-50 for testing and some Rifle Match for barrel fouling.

RWS is what my bench gun likes. Shoots better than Eley and Lapua.

Armscor is made in the Phillipines. I have some, standard velocity solid point. Dont shoot real well out of my guns. But every gun is different and has its own likes. Glad it does well for you.
