Hey guys, I can tell you where to look for .22 ammo! I have been picking up a steady supply of it at local estate and consignment auctions. I picked up two bricks (1,000 rounds) of Winchester Wildcats at $10 a brick about three weeks ago. Nobody was bidding on it. I have been picking up a fairly steady supply of ammo that way. My local gun shops have plenty of it too. The chain stores have nothing. I have picked up .22 Remington Shorts for my daughter's rifle ($3.99 a box), CCI Mini Mags 100-round boxes ($8.99 each), CCI Quiet .22's for $2.99 per 50 and even found some Maxi Mag .22 mags for $7.99 per 50 (that was the first .22 mag I have seen in 3 years!), all at my local gun shops. The trick is they limit their customers to 2 boxes per day. When my wife and kids go with me, they will let me buy two boxes for each if I want, but I done right much business with them thru the years. One of the local gun shops have been giving out the 333 round bricks with the purchase of any new .22 rifle for a Christmas special. But try your local auctions! I have a good auction site for local auctions if anyone wants it, give me a PM! I have found some heck of deals at auctions on all calibers when other bidders are sleeping! I picked up around 500 pieces of Lake City 30-06 brass and a couple dozen M1 clips for 15 bucks last weekend! It is out there, you just have to get off the beaten path.
