While I was being rung-up, I got to talking with the guy behind me about Walmart's collusion with the Current Regime's assault on the Second Amendment - no restocking of ammo for the foreseeable future - and he ended up buying the second case.

Over the span of the time it took the salesperson to dig out more ammo, I carefully deliberated and assessed my .22 LR ammo requirements for Marksmanship training for my boys over the next year or so, and as I was already at the counter, I ended up buying another whole case.

The next guy in line bought the last one.

Yikes!



Hope it's at least as good as the price was.

Anybody have any experience with it?


Thanks.

OP, pay no attention to the "GB is crap" whiners.

I always love these "this or that .22 ammo is crap because it won't work in (blank)!" posts. It's been well established that .22LR firearms in general function better with some ammo than others. If it doesn't fire in one .22, try it in another, but don't condemn it just because it won't work well in any .22 that you have. To the whiners I say then don't buy it, that leaves more for me and my ever-hungry dedicated .22 AR and Advantage Arms Glock conversion that eat them like candy.

I keep at least three brands of .22 ammo on hand for exactly that reason and don't turn up my nose when another brand comes available during times like these. If they don't work for you, you can always swap them. If you have a revolver or bolt-action, you're in fat city as they generally aren't as ammo-sensitive as semi-autos.

I've had great luck with them in both my rifles. A dew ftfs but nothing I can't work through. Great for plinking and teaching my boys how to shoot. It is a bit dirty but doea the job. If you have any issues pr dont like them, I'll gladly buy you out so my boys can shoot.

got lucky at bass pro (rancho cucamonga) with a couple of some 22lr cci (325) round packs , everything else was completely dry. spoke with a employee and she said the store may start limiting the quanities that people take. FYI

tag... I would really like to find some 22lr. I have looked all over San Bernardino and found nothing. I’m actually more upset of stores being out of 22s than 223/556 because I love to plink.

I went looking for .22. Saw a bit of .17hmr and .22WMR at brea WM and turners in Orange. Turners also had some off brand .308 range ammo that looked decent and a bit of .45acp but I couldn't figure out the price. Both big fives were picked clean and don't bother with Walmart in Orange unless you were always wondering what the back of the case looks like:

Bullseye in Riverside got probably 50 boxes of .22 (500 per box) in today...I'd get over there though as he sold like 8 while I was standing there. It's a brand called Centurion and they were getting $40 per box...

Thanks for the responses.

10/22 and Mk II Target (6-7/8") are the primary training firearms and the boys go through a few hundred rounds ea. per trip.


I'll post and let you know how it shoots the next time out.


Thanks.

I have always found the Golden bullet HV to work, had major problems with the standard stuff though(like 1 in 10 wouldnt fire, at all).

Could be they fixed it.

Yea, it's dirty, but I have never had a problem with that since I clean my guns after every trip anyway.

Besides, I also shoot Black Powder, you want dirty...

Just checked Champion shooters supply (google it) and they have Federal 711B, winchester t-22, and power point, and some lapua high end match 22lr left. Prices are still the same. No sales tax and their shipping is not exorbitant.

Default Ammo Bass Pro

Stopped by Bass Pro in Rancho Cucamonga on my way home tonight around 8:30. Had plenty of 12, 20, and .410 shot shells. Remington 00 buck and slugs. Lots of rifle ammo but no .223 or .308. Did have bulk Remington/UMC .380, Remington and Winchester .38, .38+p, Winchester .40, and Winchester .45.
Were stocking shelves with additional ammo when I left. Salesperson stated they are taking deposits on 60 Bushmaster .223 expected soon. No price yet.

Honestly I have never had a problem with the Remington products. Perhaps I'm just lucky, but at least you have some range fodder to let your friends shoot up (that is more than what most of us are finding lately).

Hate them, but better than nothing

more duds than any other .22lr bulk ammo I have ever experienced and also the bullet heads are the most loose I have ever seen

My ruger 10/22 mows through just about every brand of ammo I have ever ran through it. I get FTF's every once in a while, but they are easy to clear and its back to business in no time.

I also own a walther p22. And that gun only loves CCI mini mags. It will shoot bulk ammo, but it doesn't eject consistently with the bulk stuff. But any way you cut it, 22 ammo is cheap and will still do the job in a pinch.

Stopped by AMMO DEPOT in Fairfield, pretty sparse, most of the popular rounds are out of stock, no .22lr at all, if you have something a little out of the ordinary you might still be able find it.

What about online? Most gun shops are closed by the time I'm off work. Walmart in orange (Tustin ave/55freeway) has been cleaned out 100% of everything except shotgun bird loads.

Was at the Walmart in City of Industry and they just got a shipment in today.
They have Remington 225 boxes in .22LR for $9.97. This is the "supposed to be" new and improved GB version. They had around 50 boxes when I left there at 11:30am.

Just for fun I ran into the WallyMart in Orange and all they had left was 20 gauge shells. The guy said that their January ammo shipments have been all messed up and will have a lot more in Feb.

Also ran across the street to Big 5 and they only had .40 cal for handguns. He said they get their ammo shipments on Tuesdays.
Guess where I'll be Tuesday morning?
