Found some more .17 HMR ammo that I like today at Rural King in Martin.
Still high at $12.99 but not as bad as everywhere else I have seen it (except for Final Flight).

Also found a box of CCI 22 CB shorts, low velocity.
Just tried one out the back door and it is super quiet, like less than my pellet rifle. \:D

They were "only" $7.99 for a box of 100.
Only thing I have bought lately that I didn't think was way way too high.
Even though I remember buying them for less than a buck for 50 but everything goes up I guess.

Picked up a couple boxes of .17 HMR hollowpoints too. Just for kicks to see how they shoot compared to the tipped ones I have been shooting.

12.99 is generally what i pay for 17 hmr ammunition. I stopped in at a dunhams sports in Columbia today after i met UTGrad and noticed there 17 hmr were 17.99 a box. I was like wow

On another note ive fired hundreds and hundreds of those cb's when i was younger

22 LR are sold out at Wal-Mart in Martin, Union City and Fulton.
Final Flight and Rural King in Martin.


I did find about 500 rounds in my gun case that I forgot I had. Chead solid lead crap but it is ammo anyway.

Wonder if I can sell it for $50 a box? \:D

Not if he is going to use them. I bought 1500 rds of 22lr this weekend and 100 rds of 22 Hornet. Neither will last that long.

My buddy works at Dunhams in Athens and sent me a coupon on my phone for 15% off all ammo in stock. .17 HMR was mostly what they had in stock too. They had it all from 15.5 grn, 17 grn, and 20 grn. It's $20 a box before tax at Benton Shooters Supply, for all grain sizes.

Then my wife calls me and says they have 11 boxes of .17 HMR at her work place...for $11 a box normal price, plus she gets her discount too on top of that. Problem is...they are 20 grain and everybody I've talked to says the 20 grain don't shoot as good in their rifles.

$20 a box for 17 hmr is ridiculous

What's ridiculous is $50 a box of the cheap grade 500 rnd Winchester for 22 LR that local people are buying up like crazy.

I've got 4-5 boxes of the stuff. Guess I'll have to post it for sale.

Walmart in Paris had some 250 count boxes of .22lr today.

Think I paid 9.97 a box. Tree rats beware!
