Default Crazy .22 prices

I recently saw an advertisment from an individual (not a gun shop) offering .22 LR ammo at $50 per 50 round box for Remington, and $50 per 100 round box for CCI.

I thought people asking $100 for 500 round bricks was bad, but this is a new low.

Blood suckers (I had another term in mind, but it was not PC).

Really makes you mad when you're actually using them for hunting and can't find any around.

These idiots are stockpiling a pitiful "self-defense" round for their "pimped out" plinkers, I just don't understand.

I know that this is just word of mouth stuff but I was told recently that in about another month or so that we should start seeing rounds back on the shelves. Winchester had its entire stock pulled by the 1.6billion round buy up that the DHS did aa few months back but have stepped up production and is in the process of replenishing its stock at the warehouses. Hopefully we will see rounds on the shelves soon and prices back to normal and those individuals who stocked up on mass amounts of rounds for the purpose of reselling at higher prices will have to eat their stockpile.

Yeah, I went through the house yesterday and found another 400 or so .22 LR rounds in different places. It was like a scavenger hunt.
