    I have to agree with you on the numbers of .22 rimfire made in America. If the numbers are that high, where is it all going?

    Great video, I wondered how they got the primer powder in the rim.

    Must be them little elves are eating it, because you sure as heck can't find any on the store shelves. I don't think Janet Napolitano's people are buying it up. 4 million rounds per day just at CCI? That is a LOT of ammo to disappear.

    People are hoarding it plain and simple. I went to Gander mountain and of course .223 is long gone but 380, 38, 357, 40, 44, and 45 were in good supply.
    A friend of mine bought 5 100 rd boxes of CCI mini mags after they just got a shipment....he called me and I was there 1 hour later and all 22lr ammo was gone.
    The only ammo left was the $250 a brick comp target ammo.
    It is just nuts so I'll just wait for the Obammer paranoia to end.
