Default .22lr in San Diego

So going to get my first rifle, Marlin 795, and I'm hoping to know where most get their ammo locally if at all. The person selling me the rifle is cool enough to sell me a brick for $35 but I'll probably burn through that the quickly (maybe even the day of). I'v read about some folks getting it bit by bit in Walmart but as far as I know the Walmart close to me don't get shipments. I live on the southeastern part of San Diego County (right next to National City).

Opposite end of the county but Gunther's guns posted something on facebook yesterday about having some.

Online is likely you best bet, watch deals forum.

The WalMart off of Highland Ave is never in stock anymore. Afaik, the WalMart off Aero and the one off the 54 tend to have them in stock every now and then. But as stated, best bet is online.

I got so tired of not finding any at Walmart that I started buying online. The one on Dennery and on Broadway (Chula Vista) occasionally have some. You have to get lucky though, the hoarders buy it all up before it even hits the shelf sometimes.

That's really the best option. Buy it by the thousand/s. Either that or search the marketplace and pay a calgunner .16-.18 cents a round for mini mags

Watch the deals section of the forum, if you pay close attention someone posts good deals shipped to California. I bought 650? Rds federal auto match for 49.99 shipped.

Wow thanks for all the info guys. At the moment got about 550 rounds. Then there's the 525 rounds coming in from the PPT. I was thinking if limiting myself to 200 per week. Will watch out for the deals as they come by.

$850 for 10,000 rds of good ammo, should last you a little while.

Forget trying to find any 22 lr local. Just about every 22 lr rifle is very ammo specific. Two rifles exactly the same one serial number apart. One will chew the bullseye out at 50 yards with a certain kind of ammo, the next one will shoot a shotgun pattern with the same ammo. Point is, find an ammo your .22 likes, then order it online. Never mind what the big box store happens to have on hand or the LGS. They will sell you any kind of ammo they happen to have to make a buck without knowing or caring how it shoots in your rifle. You need the right ammo that works for your gun. Inaccurate ammo is a 1,000,000% waste of time and money. Just my .02C

The Eastlake Walmart occasionally have the bulk pack. Unfortunately you have to check often since as another poster stated "hoarders" swoops right in and empties the stock. Shop around online.

These days that's a great deal. Any limit?

online is the way to go BUT also monitor the classifieds here as every now and then there is a reasonable ammo seller offloading at decent prices. The last 2K 22lr i bough were from local san diegans at reasonable prices. (7 cents or less per round)

Dick's near the Sports Arena had a ton of MiniMags this afternoon. They also had Remington but those aren't en vogue on Calguns.

Rob, was right. Pick up different kinds of ammo and try what your gun likes. then collect as much of it as you can! You can never have too much, and I'm not a hoarder. I love my .22's so much that I never want to run out, or be so short that I can't go shooting when I want. I try Walmarts, to see if they are carrying, and if they have some I'll try to buy 3 boxes,and leave the rest for someone else. But Internet sales are a sure thing!

I believe the CCI were $10/100 and the Remington were $11/100.

I wonder how it all worked out for the hoarders? Do they still line up at Wallmart at 7 am to buy 22's?

Hell, not me. I went to the Walmart off aero yesterday and they were bare of .22. They did have a petition signature gatherer outside for Newsomes ballot initiative though.
