    Face it, that is what the price of .22lr is and will be for the next while. If you find someone still selling bricks of .22 for 25-30 dollars, please, let the rest of us know.
    We are our own worst enemy. As long as people continue to horde .22 we will continue to pay high prices.

    Thanks for the heads up, TSE.

    That is exactly what they want you to do! They (manufacturers) have no intention of bringing supply up to demand. They love keeping the supply low and costs high. Welcome to capitalism with a capitol C.

    One of the Edmonton dealers had Thunder bolt 5000 boxes on for $215 just over a year ago stacked to the ceiling. I just can't justify buying more at this price.

    Can a dealer maybe explain (if they know) why the price is so high now. I know a few lead processing plants in USA have shut down, maybe it's a lead shortage. Federal regs causing it?
    Envionmental tax? Or is this just supply and demand? If it is, then I for one am not deamnding it.

    The only .22 ammo I want now is cci sv, I have a few boxes of the Winchester cheap inaccurate stuff and thunderbolt is as bad or worse so will wait till cci or a European company comes up with right priced relatively accurate ammo!

    Thunderbolt is garbage bought a brick one time had about 10 duds, many jams, some were keyholing on target and the last straw I had gas blow in my face twice from a bad chamber seal or something. All other ammo runs perfect in that same gun.

    As consumers ourselves, we understand the perception given when an item is marked up significantly within only one year. We are not out to gouge the customer- our margins have remained the same. The current pricing is a reflection of our poor dollar and a shortage of available product in our country which forces us to purchase from our suppliers at a premium. Like you, we hope that the dollar rebounds and product prices go down for all of us.
