As the title says. That is the price at the LaPine BiMart. Anybody have a better price to report?
I think MaoMart is $1 cheaper.
Early last year I was buying bricks at 9.99.....
Hey yellow and green box Remingtons (525 count) were 7.99 anywhere just a little over a year ago.
I paid $17.00 for the Federal 550 bulk pack at Walmart last month.
Don't feel to bad,they are up to $25 a brick here in Phoenix and most of the rest of Arizona. And thats assuming you can even find any .22lr
As long as people snag these off the shelf at that price they will stay there or go higher. Why lower the price when you can't make them fast enough to keep up with demand? When they have to back off on production the price might drop a bit, but don't hold your breath.
Where is Mao Mart?
Our Bi Marts have junk .22lr bricks right now. Can't even tell you the brand but it's not copper plated, just lead. $16.99.
PS IIRC it's Peters?
I'm guessing Wal Mart?
I guess he was making a funny.:laugh:
While it does cost more than a year or so ago, I am glad to see it stay on the shelf for more than a couple hours...
$16.95 isn't too bad - I've seen a few places still try to get $25-$30/box... That is insane.
The only bit of ammo I am having issues finding cheap is .45... $20/50 rounds??? NO THANK YOU! Drop it to $16'ish and we'll talk....
Should have quoted the .45 comment. But yes of course I reload all of my 22lr.
Working on it... got the brass (From Tons of Oregon Brass)... got the primers... need to buy bullets, powder... oh, and a reloading kit to actually put everything together!
Well there is no shortage at the LaPine BiMart and no one in line at the counter either. Personally I can't really complain when I take into account how much I shoot .22's compared to my reloaded calibers.
Our Bi Mart has the Remington bricks for $16.99 and they're plated. So ask them if they can get the Remingtons.
Sold the engine and trans. thanks again for the help Gunner3456.
Welcome. Glad to hear you sold it.
It's been a few days since I was at Bi Mart but I usually go in a couple of times a week. The last two times they had lots of that Peters (limit 2) but told me that's all they could get for now. I won't buy it when I think there will be better coming. I'll keep checking. It's not as if I'm out of .22lr.
It is too bad the price has gone up on all ammo. I love shooting .22s. I would rather shoot .22 more then any other round. It is nice to see .22s on the shelves again, but i wish it would go back to 9.99 for the Federal bulk packs again.
