    It's a fast, lightweight rimfire round. It's basically a. 22 Magnum necked down to a. 17 caliber bullet, so it has the same bottleneck shape as lots of centerfire rifle rounds.

    The round I've found all over the place is 22-250. Anybody use this round? I know where I can get upwards of 10 boxes of it.

    I have found some 9mm but only because I have a connection at a local Walmart. But for the most part the shelves are empty here. Haven't seen 22LR for quite awhile.

    I can't stress enough to keep looking online. Deals pop up every day. I've been finding common calibers almost every day for good prices. the downside is you have to be almost glued to the computer because they go out of stock quickly.

    I've found primers and .224 bullets online in the last week, normal prices!
    Midway was limiting the V-Maxs at one box per order, so I passed, but 3 days later, Cabelas had the same thing, 10 box limit.

    so, I am seeing some components coming back instock, but online only

    what I want to know is where the heck is the 22LR at?

    these factories are not stopping the production of it, CCIs plant is dedicated to it and makes a million rounds a day so where is it? there should be something showing up somewhere but you never hear of anyone finding any

    Where are the primers at please? I need 5000 small rifle primers for myself ASAP! Also as to the 22-250, I have acustomer who needs it and I cannot get it through any distributer, what brand and price on it please.

    IF anyone sees Hornady TAP 62 or 68 grain ammo, I need at least 2 boxes OR the Hornady .224 TAP bullets in 62 or 68 grain a box of them will do. I coyote hunt with my SAKO and my remington using the TAPs and they are great.

    It was WWB, 40 rounds, $32.67. I'm not positive about the other details but I think it was 45grain JHP. 3 boxes sitting at a local Walmart and I've seen others at the Big R in Pekin. The boxes at Walmart have been sitting there since before the "craze".
