Federal has come out with something new but it's only new packaging. This is the same as the 525 packs of 22's we've all been buying for years. Now this one is 325 but it's sealed and sells for $19 plus shipping. I've been saying once things clam down we will get back to a "new" normal. I'm wondering if the $20 525 packs will now be the $20 325 packs.

I would say you are correct. A guy that runs the gun store that I frequent told me yesterday he has seen some price sheets and everything is going up.

Guess the manufacturers are gonna get in on the higher profit margin that the second hand sellers have been reaping of late. :(

I posted the other day that I have 7 .22 rifles and I will sell them all before I pay upwards of $50 a brick.
Only thing wrong with my statement was I forgot two of my rifles. :(

It will be the new price.
Ruger how much you want for your guns? It is going to 50 a brick. Chicago has proposed a tax of a nickel for every bullet sold. A brick will have a 25 dollar tax. I know it is Chicago but others will follow. The gov cannot and will not take the guns, but they control the ammo. I had rather have a baseball bat the a gun with no ammo. I can swing a bat a lot better than a gun. Days of cheap ammo is over, on the rich will be able to afford it in the future.

I was cleaning out my gear (junk) bag getting ready for turkey...laying loose in the bag were a bunch of .22 shells. When I tossed those in there I thought no more of it than buying a pack of BB's. I picked each on out and replaced it nicely to it's rightful box....

that is how they get you. decrease quantity but keep the price the same and everybody stays somewhat happy. Icecream is the same they cut the carton size back but kept price relatively the same.

Thank Campbells soup, they were the the first BIG business to make the can smaller and keep the same price.

The tax some places are thinking of instituting can be fixed with votes, snail and email. Raise your voice or join the sheeple

I'm just praying all of this doesnt go through. I could never justify spending that kind of money for ammo.

Yep, it's the "new" normal.I found it on other online stores and they also had the $19,99 price and backordered.

I've been looking at some of those high dollar 22's that is used for competition shooting and their base prices have gone up and NOT because of the shortage, they are in stock most of the time but they now have new prices.

Look at the cost of brass, copper, lead, employees AND ObamaCare that the companies have to pay, John Q Customer picks up the bill.
