The mach 2 is made from a necked down .22lr case. Don't think we will run out of .22lr cases in the future. It also uses the same bullets as the .17 Remington centerfire, the .17HMR, and the NEW .17 Hornet. Unless all 3 of those cartridges die I think we will have the bullets for the mach 2 also. CZ just released a new Quad like the Sake Quad which of course includes the mach 2. Don't see the cartridge going anywhere, especially since for the $$$ it performs better than the HMR. For the $$$ you can reload a .22 Hornet or a Ruger .204 and it TOTALLY outperforms the HMR!
