I swear I cannot fine a SINGLE box of 22 Long in Memphis. I've heard of them being in tight supply, but I haven't found a box in 3 months and
I have looked in earnest all over town.
Where have people found any to buy in Memphis?
I am serious.

Not to be negative but you probably will not find any anytime soon. I have not seen a box of .22 shells in SHelby county for a couple of months except for Federal birdshot .22 shells and a few boxes of Subsonics at wal mart in C'Ville last week.

Bass Pro gets them on almost every truck. You just have to be there when they open to get some. It's coming in. You just have to be there the day they get the truck.

It's either
: a.... The government doesn't want the new generation to have fun except on the Internet reading about the Kardasians etc \:\)

B: all the brass and lead components are going into filling the orders for the government which is buying up over 2,000,000,000 rounds in the past year to fool with 22 rounds

I suspect they will be in short supply for a long time

Anybody else got any theories other supply and demand ....

Seen a place in Alabama today that had Federal .22 LR shells by the cases. They had two pallets of them setting out with a one brick per person limit. They were $40 for 500 rounds.
