ammo is a terrible buy right now as a business. prices will continue to drop for a bit, i would wait a while longer, unless they are offering you great deals which will let you price out other competitors. hell even sgammo has a section on their site now called "clearance at a loss"

I know it seems like Trump has been President forever, but it really has only been two months. If Hellary had won, we'd be getting ready to become Britain, where you need a license and a psych evaluation to buy a spork. The bad news is that I missed the cheap milsurp boom. The good news is that the days of cheap, readily available .22lr are back again.

I got the best of both by picking up a WZ-48, the Polish milsurp training rifle that they patterned after the Mosin. Bud's still has them for $200 if you're interested.

I remember that too, but that was 10 years ago so I'm ok with it being 4cpr. At least gas is only around 2 bucks a gallon.

22LR could be found for 6 ish cents for bulk for a very big while now, like, almost a year and a half probably.

Immediate prescare prices was like 3-4 cpr for bulk and even that's not considered cheap. it's going to take a while to get down to that again, if ever.

>>33376472
fun fact, the action was actually first used in a mauser trainer. The WZ31 is significantly more expensive than the WZ48.
>>
>>33373862
.22 is 5 cpr at Walmart here in NY. Meanwhile the LGS has it for ~10 cpr lmao
>>
>>33376210
Some of those deals are good, but others still seem bad at a loss.

.30 Carbine seems like a good deal, most places I see it have it at like 60cpr.
>>
Vista Outdoors insider here. The shortage was never due to hoarders or scalpers. Vista was warehousing 70-80% of the .22lr they made for the last 5 years or so. If it's back on the shelves, it just means they decided to stop stockpiling their own ammo. Looking back, the most likely reason I can see for the stockpiling in the first place is they needed a couple billion dollars for leverage or some business bullshit during the split from ATK Orbital. Also, they still have the warehouses full of .22lr.

2 million rds per day x 5 years x 70% is roughly 2.5 billion rounds stashed away. $0.05 per is a chunk of change to be sure.
>>

>fun fact, the action was actually first used in a mauser trainer. The WZ31 is significantly more expensive than the WZ48.
Yeah, it's basically a Mauser with a Mosin stock, and even has a Mauser-type safety. That means the bolt is nice and smooth tho.

>Such bullshit.
>Obama was prez for eight fucking years ans you can still by shit.
>Grow up..
This entire thread was about the rising price and increasing scarcity of .22lr suddenly reversing itself as soon as a vocally pro-2A president got elected. I don't know what Shillblue is paying you, but for your off-topic and misspelled post, they should demand a refund.
>>
>>33376650
To be fair I can't really think of anything Obama did to cause the price of .22 to stay so high during his two terms, I remember the panic buying when he was elected, but the price never seemed to go down.
>>
>>33376650
It started showing back up before the primaries had ended. If Hillary had won, the shelves would have the same number of boxes they do today. Yes, she would have taken action to end that, but not so soon. The lessening scarcity of .22 is not linked to the election.
>>
>>33375787
>its going down to at least 4cpr
Is there much of it being manufactured in America?

I seem to recall this all starting because a major manufacturer of it went bust or something, then having to get supply from overseas. Here in Australia our manufacturers were exporting to America like crazy but they didn't have nearly the capacity relative to the demand.

>>33376650
>suddenly reversing itself as soon as a vocally pro-2A president got elected.
I may be Australian, but even I know that's complete bullshit. Americans on /k/ have been reporting that .22lr has been slowly dropping for at least a year.

You know, back when it was expected Hilldawg would win.

>2.5 billion rounds
A pittance, domestic production was 108 billion rounds in 2015. 130 million households have a .22, if each household wants to buy 1000 rounds per year, that is standing demand of 130 billion rounds. Difference between domestic production and standing demand is fulfilled by imports.

Increased gun sales to first time buyers starting in 2008 would have created a shortage organically, but the shortage persisted into late 2015 because of scalpers. Even now, retailers struggle to remain fully stocked when priced competitively, but at least there is generally some available.

>>33376661
The proposed M855 ban caused a lot of recreational shooters to buy .22's they never would have otherwise (either switching directly from .223 or to another caliber causing its scarcity and causing those guys to swap to .22), and caused a general ammo panic where people were buying in quantity because it was unlikely they could just waltz into walmart and plop down money for a bulk pack an hour before a range session.

Guess what? Those people still have those rifles and pistols. Demand, if anything, is still increasing (although much more slowly). Couple this with the EPA under Obama's indirect influence shutting down the last domestic lead mine, and the Democratic Party forcing through the lead ammunition ban in California, and prices rose.

.22lr was always available. IF you were willing to pay outrageous amounts of money for it. There for a while it was actually cheaper for me to shoot my .17hmr or steel-cased .223 than it was .22lr because the only people that had it wanted a quarter a round for it. But it was available.
>>
>>33376661

Environmental regulations against the lead industry, for one.
>>
>>33376701
That's complee bullshit spread by idiots.
One smelter shut down over several decades of non compliance did not even cause ablip in supply or price.
Almost all lead in bullets is recycled anyways.

The M855 ban scare wasn't until 2015, the lead mine didn't close until 2013, and who cares about Commiefornia.
>>
>>33376692
Yeah the numbers are kind of small to have made a difference like we saw. I only know about their Lewiston plant, I think they have another one too. I think it's Winchester that's not a Vista brand, they just do all the CCI/Speer and Federal stuff.
I know for a fact they were warehousing the majority of their product for years during the shortage, and most of what they didn't warehouse went overseas. How much that contributed to the shortage, who knows.

>>33376458
I keep a 22/45 with CCI Velocitor loaded up. Hits like a 22 freight train. Best stuff around.

>>33376736
It was initially announced in mid-2014 as probable that they'd push it, with the open referendum starting in January 2015. It was done and over with by the end of March 2015.

They also tried it in 2009 with basically zero support and it died quietly.

Yeah, it wasn't the sole cause of the shortage but it definitely prolonged it.

What would those boxes cost if Hillary had won? How long would they have lasted on the shelves? I'm sure you can answer those, since you seem to have a window into alternate history.
>>33376688
>I may be Australian, but even I know that's complete bullshit. Americans on /k/ have been reporting that .22lr has been slowly dropping for at least a year.
>You know, back when it was expected Hilldawg would win.
Yes, they were slowly dropping. And then, after the election, they dropped quickly and dramatically.

It's almost as if manufacturers reacted to a price increase caused by political concerns that they expected to continue indefinitely by increasing production capacity, and then, when shifting political winds caused reduced panic buying, saw a sudden and dramatic crash in prices as the market reacted to what was now an oversupply.
>>
>>33376797
>And then, after the election, they dropped quickly and dramatically.
So, the price had already reached six cents, but then it dropped quickly and dramatically to... six cents?

It's almost as if you're full of shit.

im OP, you are replying to someone else. before the election though, 22lr was already starting to come down in price, presumably because manufacturing capacity was catching up, it was about $.12/rd the start of 2016, then $.10 cents a round in the few months before the election, i first noticed the $.08/rd 22lr on black friday sales in november, then in christmas it became a 'normal price'. now we are at $.06/rd and i am stoked to start shooting 22 liek crazy

If you want an AR style built that you can do AR things to. Some AR mods won't work with it but most should. Has full rail set and good iron sights.

Not as good as the MP15-22 but has a shit-ton of aftermarket parts and mods. Cheap choice too.
