Default Where to buy 22 ammo online?

Seems like every single website I google is sold out or back ordered.

What are your go to websites?

Thanks!

Good luck. I only have 6000 rounds and have been looking and not one place has them at a price I will pay if they even have some for sale. I just made a trade for 9mm mak ammo for 9mm luger. I have one mak and 2k mak rounds. way too many, as I have several 9mm lugers and only 2k rouds.

over the holidays i was given an old colt .22 pistol that's been in the family, and one would think it would be easy to get .22 rounds... but noooooo.
In fact we hit stores between Wi and SC in our travels as well as online, and everything was off the shelf or on b/o. So i've been able to just look at this neat pistol.. and look at it.... and look at it...

I did order a few boxes of the rounds i wanted from a local place online (Palmetto State Armory), but i ordered them 12/31 and they just shipped yesterday (couldnt get them in store here). At least they shipped. Same rounds on every site i've searched for online is on b/o, and due dates ranging from 1/26 to late spring.

good luck!

5000 rounds shipped to your door for about $250

Good luck with that one lol. There is absolutely nothing out there. I started stocking up on .22 ammo several months ago and I'm sit'n pretty now. I just had a feeling something like this was coming. These sites don't even have any guns in stock. I've been looking everywhere for an SR9 but everything is gone. An ammo factory in my town, just a little mom and pop type operation, has even suspended ammo sales for the time being.

When do you think this market will stabalize again?

for what it's worth, i have a family member in hunting/sporting goods retail and sounds like per some manu reps this could go on for some months... guess i picked a great time to be given an old family pistol and between "Christmas time/panic sales/empty shelves and web sites" try to find some little old .22 bullets lol

OP, btw i did just get the CCI std velocity .22LRs yesterday that I ordered on 12/31 from Palmetto State Armory here in SC; cant say if they have anymore available, but they show online they ship in about 15 days and that was right on. Of course if i find this brand ammo works best in the old Colt, i will wish i had ordered more then 4 boxes....

Not sure if we should be taking the 'panic-buy now' attitude with ammo
Could look at it this way: if people have gone this far in life without stockpiling ammo and guns, why run out and buy up everything now? Seems like it just worsens it for all buyers by making it big demand/small supply...higher prices to come. Who's benefiting the most in this crisis?

saw a pic from a local gun show yesterday that had thousands in attendance. Guy was sitting in the parking lot, in the back of his truck, trying to sell a gun he just bought earlier that day. Combine that mentallity with those selling guns 2-5x their normal retail, and i dont know who's worse... the person price gouging or the person paying that price.

It's idiotic, and those participating are killing the market for the avg owner/shooter. And i have zero pity for anyone who gets caught up in all this and actually pays those outrageous prices..

Just my .02

The police had to shut a gun show in my area down the other day because of the sheer volume of people showing up. They didn't really shut it down, but they closed the doors and said basically, if you aren't in , you aren't getting in.

Thats an easy one, the person paying the price is worse. As they say, theres a sucker born every minute and if someone has something, and someone else is wiilling to pay x amount of dollars for it, by all means, go for it. I do agree with your sentiment that those panic buying are ruining things for uus average joe's though. I have a feeling all these people are going to be disappointed when we all wake up one morning a few months from now and the gun they just payed $2500 for is retailing for $800. What is everyone so worried about? Don't they realise we have a Repub. controlled House? I don't look for any MAJOR legislation to pass for at least 2 years. Even leaders in the senate are luke warm about the idea, saying "we aren't going to spend a lot of time on something that we know will fail just so we can say we did something"
