    Anyone need 22 LR ammo? Got this email this morning from Rural King. It's a farm supply store based in Michigan (I think). Phone number is 844-754-8671. Word of caution. Free dilevery may be to nearest local Rural King store. I didn't check on that.

    Winchester Wildcat .22 LR, 40 gr., LRN, 5000 round case, $239.99 with free shipping.

    They also have some guns on sale. Here's a link to their newsletter:

    I'm pretty well set for .22 LR for quite awhile. Still, if I found a deal like that on, say, something by CCI or Aguila ... or maybe even Federal ... I'd probably jump on it. Winchester Wildcat has long been one of my least favorites. Their M-22 ammo is pretty awesome, though - some of the cleanest .22 LR that I've ever fired.

    So far so good. I keep 1000 rounds of whatever I shoot per gun with the exception of .22lr because I use it so often. It is truly a versatile caliber. .22 short for mice, .22 quiet for most flying nuisances, .22lr will tag everything up to maybe marmots. Not to mention a fantastic training round for kids, under supervision of course until they can prove to me they are a "safe shooter." There's always "experts" on the firing line saying it can't hit @#$% at 100 yards. that myth is constantly being debunked. I honestly do not know why its still around.

    I don't buy extra unless I plan on going shooting the very next morning. I think there's a lesson to be learned with ammo hoarding, it just drives the prices high for everyone else. Let there be a surplus so the new shooters aren't wincing after each shot :)

    Some reason for me, Winchester Wildcat as been hit or miss, not as terrible as Remington thunderbolt as far as fouling goes, but I've had more misfires than I can count. Ruger 10/22, Walther P22, Ruger SR-22, Henry survival were among its users. I've stuck with CCI or Eley when I can find them. But hey, some say its great ammo. In any case thanks for the heads up, I'll pass the info on on elsewhere.

    Depends on what you mean by a deal, for me I pulled the trigger on this.

    FWIW, .22 LR bulk packs have become plentiful and readily available all over town here in central AZ. Just picked up a 550 round box of Federal 36gr HP's from Wally World the other day for twenty-two bucks and some change - it was mid-day, no line of people, and it wasn't the last box on hand. It's like I went back in time 10 years or something. :)
    FLT and 850sub like this.

    Around here (SW Ohio) I consider it a deal if I can buy 50 rounds for under $3.50.

    I have a couple 1,000 on hand because I don't shoot it up and waste it. My favorite so far is SK brand.


    Bought a brick of these for under $25 couple of months ago.
