    Hello, I inherited a rifle that shoots 22 Long only. I have been trying to find ammo for it for some time and have had no luck I would love to teach my daughter with it. If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated. Only looking for a few hundred rounds old or new in fine. Have 22lr to trade Or 22win.mag. Thanks Scott

    If you thought lr's or shorts are hard to find....:(


    I have 1 100 round box of CCI but that is the only box I have seen in a very long time.

    Might try some of the online shops and put in a standing order if they get some in.

    If your down this way or I get up that way I'd be happy to sell the box to you. If your serious about teaching your daughter, I would consider getting a .22lr - hard to find ammo still but way more available then longs.

    Best of luck on your search!!!

    If you were closer then the other side of the state then I'd give them to you just for that.

    If your ever south let me know.

    Still looking. I have some 22 win mags I would trade for 22 Longs. Let me know what you think is a fair trade. I have around 500rnds. Would like to do a FTF trade. Thanks

    Will it take 22 short? If so, lots more of that around.

    It will not its for a 1890 Winchester chambered in 22 Long only. And that's all it will feed. I can cut down 22 lr's and they will work but that is a very long process Thanks

    Thanks I'll check it out. But I I believe the lifter, carrier, and barrel has to be replaced to change calibers.

    I have the same rifle and got lucky a year ago. I put in a notification at MIDWAY and ended up with 500 rds. I also "had" a bunch of the CCI CB longs which I have since used up. Nice and quiet too.
    Hope you find some soon as it seems 22 is making a little return and just maybe you will be able to get some by summer.
