    Seems to be loosening up. Went to Cabelas twice in the last 2 weeks for a total of 1000 rounds.
    Today they had 1000s of CCI Minis, CCI standard, Norma, Fed Auto Match.
    Limits are now 500 rounds total, up from 100 rnds.
    Also saw 500 boxes of Rem golden at LG.

    I am seeing a little bit more of the 22LR but then that is still very sporadic. A month ago in WM they had some 50 rnd boxes with limit of 3.Then last Sunday they had 100 rnd boxes also at limit 3. Came out to around .08 a round so I bought them.
    I still seldom see any 525 bricks around.

    You guys just don't realize how lucky you are buying .22 rounds. They are impossible to get. I think I put on another thread a while back that I saw a box of .22 (import, cuz it was a strange name) and they wanted almost $10.00 for a box of 50. If you go to Sportsman's Warehouse, which I do frequently to buy bullets, they sell the heck out of the .22 pistols but don't tell the customer how hard it is to get .22 rounds. I truly feel that is unethical as they have about 25 different .22 pistols in stock all the time. But what do I know. I am just the dumb azz standing in line trying to buy Berry bullets and patiently wait my turn. Guys, consider yourselves lucky!!

    I just bought two 325 rnd per box 22lr online at Natchez Shooters Supply for $17.49 per box plus $18 dang freight. So it cost me about $53 which comes out to .08 a round which isn't to bad.

    Went to Adventure Outdoors here in Atlanta Saturday and there was a pallet of Federal Match 22lr 335 rnd for 21.95 and a pallet of 22lr CCI HV 300 rnd for 34.95. That is the most I have seen in one spot in years!

    The price of the rounds aren't so bad but the freight costs are what kills you. It's the same with powder and the Haz Mat fee. When I buy my 230gr. Berry round nose bullets, I buy 500 at a time because if you spend $75.00 worth of items, they will ship you want you ordered FREE of charge. At Sportsman's Warehouse they charge me $48.00 for 250 rounds so I save up and order them direct. 500 rounds from Berry's cost $73.00 so I always order the plastic round holders with the snap on the box for a buck a piece to make it up to the $75.00 requirement and it all comes in the mail
