I haven't purchased any .22 rimfire ammo in at least 6 or 7 tears. Still got maybe 10 K on the shelf.but I always look.

Don't shoot rimfire ANYWHERE as much as I used to. Actually, I hardly shoot it at all anymore. That's why I still have so much in stock.

I figured the price would eventually get back to normal. It should be there again, but it's not, and I don't think not ever will be. They screwed us, got away with it, so why would they change their mindset now? Ain't gonna happen.

OKAY. That was my rant. Now onto the subject:

I see some CCI .22 LR on the shelf today. Boxes of 50 and boxes of 100.

Boxes of 50 were $3.50. Boxes of 100 were $7.50. So cheaper to buy the smaller boxes. No brainer.

Tell the clerk I want some ammo, and she unlocks the case. We confirm that both the 50 and 100 round boxes are the very same ammo. No difference, other than the plastic case for the larger box vs. the cardboard box for the smaller one.

OK, so is there a limit? ...... Yes. 3 boxes. ........... So I can only buy 3 boxes of the 50 rounds? .......... Correct. OR I can buy 3 boxes of 100 rounds? .......... Correct
If you had boxes of 500 rounds, I could buy 3 of those? ......... Correct

WHERE'S THE LOGIC ?

Then ....... to top it off: I buy 3 boxes of 100, and she rings them up. Says "Hold on, don't swipe yet" She rang up 4 by mistake. She was having the damnedest time trying to remove the 4th box. I asked her if she just wanted me to buy another box. Do you want one? Sure, why not. So we stretched the "rules" anyway.

The 3 box policy was removed by corporate several months ago. Try a different store. That one has their head up their azz. You should have been able to buy as many as you please.

Yeah that's what I had heard too, I stopped seeing the 3 box limit at the other retailers as well.

Yeah, there's no more 3 box limit.

The Wal-Mart by me has 50 round boxes of Federal for $2.47

I had a similar experience at WalMart several years ago. (Before the Sandy Hook shortage.)

I bought .45 ACP in two boxes of 50 instead of one box of 100, because it was cheaper that way. The salesman looked at me like I was crazy -- "But this is the Value Pack! It's always cheaper to buy the Value Pack!" Silly me.

Also at WalMart, I asked for .45 ACP, and was told that they didn't have any. The shelf was full of W-W white box marked ".45 Auto," but the salesman solemnly informed me that .45 Auto would not work in a pistol chambered for .45 ACP. I allowed as how I would take my chances. He just shook his head at the stupidity of some people -- and reminded me that ammo is non-returnable.

The walmart in Flagstaff was well stocked this week. There were about a dozen of the Remington 1400 round buckets for $70 something each, .05 per round is probably as low as it will get in the new reality.

That is a bargain if you look at the inflation rate. In the '50s a penny a round was typical. Just about everything is more than 5 times a expensive now.

This morning, at the Walmart at AZ Ave./Pecos, plenty of W-W Super-X, $8.50/100; Federal something $3.50/50.

I was told when I wanted three of the Remingtion Bucket of Bullets, that one was the limit at my local Walmart.
I was going to buy three...
I was told I could not.
I mentioned that I thought there was no more limits on 22lr.
The response I got was something to the affect that their store does have a limit.
Oh well, at least I got one bucket.

Maybe buckets have limits and the rest doesn't or???

I'm starting to think what's happening is maybe employees from other departments are being tasked with the sports section, perhaps they're just not up to date on the policy. For what's worth I was at the Walmart next to Bass Pro Shop, I didn't see any limits on ammo, I just went in to pick up a box of Remington 9mm JHP and Perfecta .308

FWIW we were in Cabela's on Saturday. If price wasn't an option you could get plenty of .22.

YUP ............ Key word is "price".

I doubt if it will get any better. Prices seemed to have stabilized at about twice what they used to (and should) be.

I have a decent amount on my shelf. Don't shoot rimfire anywhere as much as I used to.

Much cheaper to shoot my reloaded 9mm's
