.22 Ammo is getting affordable again!

Post by Rob Kovach on 5/12/2017, 8:26 pm

I just bought a case of Aguila Super Extra SV for $249.50/case with FREE SHIPPING!! It's like before the shortage!

My budget only lets me buy 500 or so at a time. Sometimes 1000 rounds at a time. So I buy it locally. Good prices can be found online but I seldom find good prices locally. And I mostly shoot CCI Standard so it would be nice to see those prices come down some.

Once the hoarders start looking at their stockpiles and realize that they'll not shoot a tenth of it in their lifetimes, the market may become one of a buyer's market.

I just bought CCI SV for $39.94 a brick and that was with shipping and state and county tax.  I ordered it on the 11th from AmmoFast.com and it is being delivered today.   Wish I didn't have to pay S&H and tax as it was $35 a brick.  They had a lot of ammo listed in stock.  Don

The new stuff is aguila primed vs eley primed, probably no difference other than labeling

Before their going out of business sale, my local Gander Mountain had CCI SV on sale for $39.99 a brick. I bought 3 bricks.

You know the shortage is over when Big 5 is advertising it for 4.49 a box (50 rounds) not the cheapest but they never had it in the past.

I resemble that statement Rolling Eyes Dang hoarders anyhow. My son said I'm not a hoarder if I get it all shot. Going to be busy soon.

When Aguila set up their operation they bought Eley's old analog priming system. Eley reps went to Mexico and helped them set it up. Eley went to a digital priming system. I wouldn't worry about the labeling.
