Anyone else besides me stashing some .22 LR ammo before 1st of February? I don't have that many only about 15K rounds. Would like to get at least 25K before the 1st.

For some reason, I found the 500 rds Blazer .22LR more accurate then the ones in 525 rds package. Both function great in my various .22LR firearms tho. Blazer have the least amount of FTF for bulk pack for me. They are good to go! :hurray:

I like the winchester 555s. It's on you Turners.
Anyone else divide their stash into typical hr or two range bulk and specialized stuff like 1700+ fps or velocitors? I seem to be lower on the bulk than the specialty.

Thats because the 525 pack is Federal manufacture and the 500 box is CCI manufacture. I have tried both and quickly bought about 12k of the CCI Blazer.

Im at about 30k and am looking at buying another 10k before Feb.

I am "stocking up" (read: hoarding) on "exotic" 22 ammo that is not carried by my local MalWart, Big 5, Turner's or mom and pops. I am talking about the Aguila super hypervelocity stuff, the Colibris, the Lapua Target loads, etc.

I am also buying online as much as I can 22 CB's and 22 Longs.

Only time will tell if the remaining out of state retailers will continue to ship 22 ammo after February 1st. I just find it sad that I will forever be limited by what the stores around me carry--that means crappy and dirty Thunderbolts and 22's by the brick.

yeah i've got at least 15k of assorted types sitting around too... i don't bother to keep track anymore. haha. i ended up with a lot of the Federal 525 bulk packs, but that stuff really is just good for making the guns go bang... the occasional FTF and general inconsistency with those rounds is just kinda "meh"...

what i do need to stock up on though is a pile more Federal AutoMatch... that stuff is scary accurate coming out of my 15-22 (much more accurate than me, anyhow)... and i'm hoping it will work just as well in the Marlin 795 i just picked up. if anyone knows a good source, please share the secret sauce!

i still need to sort out what kind of ammo my savage mk II TR loves though... and pick up a load of whatever flavor that happens to be.

+ 1 million on this.

It's not just being gouged but to me being fingerprinted just to buy ammo is akin to being groped by the TSA jellyfinger at the airport - it rankles me as a freedom loving American expatriate living in CA.

I will NOT be buying ANY ammo in CA after Feb 1. I will begin to reload for my popular centerfire cartridges and make a once/twice a year pilgrimage to America to buy ammo of various types.

I am also making up business cards that will inform gun shops that I am NOT buying ammo at their store (but I'd like to) due to AB962 and will drop them off at the counter when I go browsing. That way they will KNOW they are losing sales due to the law.

Since I shoot less than I'd like, and I buy in bulk, I am not too worried that I will run out of anything before I have a chance to go shopping in a free state.

sitting on more than 11k rounds & have an average rate of .02765 etc. per round, so about 2.8 cents & rarely have any ftf/fte or failure etc. when using most of my 22LR rifle/s or pistol/s or kimbers' 22LR conversion kit for 1911.that kit doesn't like HP mostly rounded nose only. but federal works again in the conversion kit, so can't complain too much.
i pick up a bulk @ wallys too, but have learned buying 375 bulk packs, in my area @ least, they're less expensive than buying 525 or 550 packs. we're talking by a few tenths, but still, more expensive
it's also nearly in everywhere that's not a common place for ammo. ie. any less traveled shop will almost certainly have lots of 22lr in stock. so never worried about running out.
i might have closer to 12k, but know for sure i quit counting @ 11.1k

I stocked up with 5k for right now and I figure if i get low I can just go to AZ or NV they are only like 4-5 hours away. I checked my local walmart last night just to see if anyone else was buying all the stuff up and sure enough all that they had left were the Remington golden bullets and the more expensive CCI's. It made me laugh.

I normally keep a minimum reserve of 10k rounds of .22lr, as I go through a nearly a case per month. This past year, I have been stocking up on .22lr. Regardless of how AB 962 plays out, I will have plenty of rimfire ammo for quite some time to come.

Hey guys I thought rifle was not part of this ammo law. Whats the deal?

well from what I've heard the law is poorly written and leaves a lot of gray area. some say that the law interprets it as any ammunition that can be used in a pistol. So since 22lr can be used in a pistol it will fall under the umbrella of the law. I'm was also curious if .223 would be affected because of the Kel-Tec PLR 16 and others like it that are labeled as pistols; considering this is Kommiefornia I wouldnt be all that surprised. Anyways most if not all online ammo dealers will stop shipping all ammo to Kommiefornia, I'm not exactly sure if its because the law makes it illegal or if it just makes it too difficult/risky. I've also heard a few murmurs about limiting how much a person can buy in a single purchase but I cant be too sure about that last part. I dont want to be spreading FUD so if any of this is incorrect, please feel free to correct my statements.
*This is why everyone is stocking up on pistol ammo or stuff that could be considered pistol ammo.

Dam...I thought .22lr would be fine since it's also a rifle cartridge. I guess there's still too many gray areas and we won't know for sure comes the 1st? Cabelas has already posted up notice on their website come February 1st, 2011 they will not be able to ship ANY handgun ammunition to California.

continue to stock up if you wish...but...here's a few ideas:

1...obey the law as written. if you disagree with the law, work to have it changed/rescinded.

2...elect those who do not have anti-gun agendas

3...work towards the removal of the one who pass anti-gun legislation

4...use their own system to defeat them and their agendas/ideas. most legislators are so vain and self centered they're not cognizant of any thing but their own system and believe they're beyond reproach. the 'bullet button' issue is a good example, look at how they were 'by passed' in that issue...now...'they' are worried spitless about "How many AR's are out there".

like many have said here...a trip to AZ or NV will help dramatically if you like to "stock up". hitting the legislature in the wallet is one way to get their attention. they get lots of revenue from ammo sales in this state. i am considering doing ALL my ammo purchases in AZ or NV anyway. i do not want any more support to go to California legislature than is absolutely necessary from my taxes; they do not deserve it.

the average gun shop owner has much better knowledge and a feel for the community than does the legislature and should not be 'bad mouthed' for the demented legislators in Sacramento.

Don't know about NRAhighpowershooter but I shoot 2k rounds per month so for me that's less than 3 years supply. Some of us retired folks visit our range 2-3 times per week and blast away. Doesn't take long to eat up a brick or two or three.

I look at my stash like insurance. Might not need it but nice to have just in case.

Did the Ammo count last night just to see what I need to stock up on.

I did notice Wal-Mart in Mountain View had zero pistol ammo. I am guessing the rush has already started.

Good idea to stock up on 22lr, might pick up a 22lr pistol at some point just to plink with so I don't have to waste my "freedom" ammo before I need to restock and go though the extra-freedom process to acquire ammo.

I just did a range day with a Polish WZ-48 and Ruger MkII and had ton of fun. A quick check of my ammo inventory spreadsheet, I have about 30K rounds of ammo of which 13K is .22lr. The rest is divided up among the 13 other calibers I have to feed. I really need more range safe 45ACP, 9mm and 7.62x39. Oh and you can never have enough .22lr. :)

no implication of that sort...read it again...THINK about it...:cool2:

WE the voters, keep allowing the same people to keep on getting us deeper and deeper in to the morass of socialism and such indebtedness it'll NEVER end and along with that, comes the oppression of those same principles by passing the laws that they do. (the infamous AWB of klinton as an example)

Jerry Brown nearly ruined California on his first term as gov a few years ago...now the people have RE-elected him for a second chance even after he's said he's going to tax us into oblivion (geeeeee..i pay $350.00 per year now for registering a 4 year old Toyota truck...why should we allow him to RAISE those rates? the people FIRED Gray Davis for doing that...REMEMBER? auto registrations are supposed to GO DOWN, NOT UP!) and educate illegal immigrants at OUR expense...Diane feinstein is an AVID anti-gun legislator and openly admits she advocates confiscation as is Barbara boxer and Gavin newsome...yet they keep getting re-elected...why? :mad:

we need to use the voting box instead of the ammo box at this time. in this day and time, legislators have elevated themselves to a near deity status and will shun any attempts to unseat them or their legislation other than an election. (and even then, the supreme court is called on in some issues as we all know...prop 187 as an example and they continually try to get rid of prop 13 that limits what they can tax you in your property) :mad:

Charles Rangel was writing tax laws you and i are subjected to, yet he gets indicted for violating those same laws...geeeeeeeeeee...he's a multi-term, ELECTED official...he had the nerve to plead for us to "have some mercy shown" to him...he would gladly put you or i into the streets for committing the violations he committed...

watch how fast you end up in prison if you try to overthrow the current regime by any way other than a legal vote...ESPECIALLY if you advocate violence. what do you think would happen if someone would try to storm the capitol building in Sacramento during a legislative session?

once ANY administration gets the upper hand, it's very difficult to break the stranglehold the longer it goes on.

it goes something like this: legislators fear an armed opposition...it's that simple and if they can legislate it away from them...they will. at this moment, their opposition has allowed them to BY VOTING THEM INTO POWER.

simply stated: we all know Diane Feinstein, as an example, is an anti-gun extremist, why do we, the voters, vote for her? THE VOTERS know she will try to confiscate our, the law-abiding, private citizen's, firearms if given the power and opportunity to do so. why give her the chance? why not strip her of any chance she might get before she can get it? VOTE.

I'd better go back to decaffeinated coffee...:(

once ANY administration gets the upper hand, it's very difficult to break the stranglehold the longer it goes on.

it goes something like this: legislators fear an armed opposition...it's that simple and if they can legislate it away from them...they will. at this moment, their opposition has allowed them to BY VOTING THEM INTO POWER.

simply stated: we all know Diane Feinstein, as an example, is an anti-gun extremist, why do we, the voters, vote for her? THE VOTERS know she will try to confiscate our, the law-abiding, private citizen's, firearms if given the power and opportunity to do so. why give her the chance? why not strip her of any chance she might get before she can get it? VOTE.

I'd better go back to decaffeinated coffee...:(

I have not now or ever voted for Feinstein, Boxer, Brown, etc. and I ensure my family and friends don't either, yet they continue to get (re)elected. I guess too many morons/idiots in California. I believe a big part of the problem is letting clueless teenagers vote as most of them are brainwashed liberal sheep. Should raise the minimum age to vote at least to 21 or higher.

Thats because the 525 pack is Federal manufacture and the 500 box is CCI manufacture. I have tried both and quickly bought about 12k of the CCI Blazer.

Federal and CCI are the same company (under ATK), so how can the aforementioned ammo be different?

no implication of that sort...read it again...THINK about it...:cool2:

WE the voters, keep allowing the same people to keep on getting us deeper and deeper in to the morass of socialism and such indebtedness it'll NEVER end and along with that, comes the oppression of those same principles by passing the laws that they do. (the infamous AWB of klinton as an example)

Jerry Brown nearly ruined California on his first term as gov a few years ago...now the people have RE-elected him for a second chance even after he's said he's going to tax us into oblivion (geeeeee..i pay $350.00 per year now for registering a 4 year old Toyota truck...why should we allow him to RAISE those rates? the people FIRED Gray Davis for doing that...REMEMBER? auto registrations are supposed to GO DOWN, NOT UP!) and educate illegal immigrants at OUR expense...Diane feinstein is an AVID anti-gun legislator and openly admits she advocates confiscation as is Barbara boxer and Gavin newsome...yet they keep getting re-elected...why? :mad:

we need to use the voting box instead of the ammo box at this time. in this day and time, legislators have elevated themselves to a near deity status and will shun any attempts to unseat them or their legislation other than an election. (and even then, the supreme court is called on in some issues as we all know...prop 187 as an example and they continually try to get rid of prop 13 that limits what they can tax you in your property) :mad:

Charles Rangel was writing tax laws you and i are subjected to, yet he gets indicted for violating those same laws...geeeeeeeeeee...he's a multi-term, ELECTED official...he had the nerve to plead for us to "have some mercy shown" to him...he would gladly put you or i into the streets for committing the violations he committed...

Really, how so? A few years ago when? It has been more than a few years ago since JB was gov, I guess Arnold has been a screaming success? Anyway, I am not a huge JB fan, but you are lacking in specific criticisms other than the usual "he's a socialist gibberish" and so although I usually ignore such ignorant ravings from the not the sharpest tool in the shed crowd, there are 2 specific examples where JB left CA with an impressive legacy. First, for better or worse, JB oversaw the building of the impressive CA freeway system that no other state has, bar none. Second, and more significantly, and why CA is a technology leader and Texas and Florida etc. are just wannabes is that he made funding the best state school system, UC, in the world, bar none, a priority.

So, if you want to be a single issue person fine, I am not, but I suggest you might want to learn a few things about Jerry and the state of CA before you spout non-specific/incoherent Glenn Beckisms

No limits on amount of ammo in the lawbooks.

There have been sheriffs who tried to make 5 guns and a thousand rounds of ammo look like "An Arsenal" or "A Weapons Cache" or some damn evil thing when they are publicizing an arrest. Makes for good TV footage all laid out on a table, oohhh scary. Save your children!!

Anyone else besides me stashing some .22 LR ammo before 1st of February? I don't have that many only about 15K rounds. Would like to get at least 25K before the 1st.

I love shooting my 22's. I easily go through 300 rounds in 1 range trip. I've been stocking up since last year.

It sucks how ammo can be used for rifles and handguns are going to restricted. I've received several emails from online vendors stating they will not ship 22lr to Cali because it is considered handgun ammo.

Are they scared that we are going to bring our anti's with us? or is it just that they dont want to give away their whole supply to out of towners? seems stupid to me because they are losing out on a big market.

I have to disagree with you. Honestly age has nothing to do with it. I think the age for at least some votes should be LOWERED to 16. This will help get, and KEEP teens interested in whats going on in politics. Its being uninformed and MISinformed that causes most of the problem. I know plenty of 16-18 year olds who are completely knowledgeable and develop their own opinions, and while they may not be the majority, they do exist. 16-18 year olds have to pay taxes if they work, yet they have no say in the laws and taxes passed. I think that to vote at ANY age you should have to take a competency test that will show the ability to make and support your opinion, show that you are informed on current events, and that you can interpret a ballot and see what is actually being voted on.

Does that also apply if a person is 1 week, 1 month, 1 year, 10 years old? The line has to be drawn somewhere doesn't it? 16 or 18 or 21 doesn't make a person smart enough or dumb enough to vote. We pass laws to try to have a reasonable age where a person is allowed to vote. That's how it works. Your representative is your representative whether you voted for them or not. That's the way our government works, like it or not. President Obama is the President of all Americans, even me and I did not vote for him. If we all get to have our own President that's called anarchy.
