Why would someone start a thread about 22LR on a site dedicated to hunting in Africa?:confused: It is definately not becasue I would use it on my next safari, but I thought this would be interesting because most of us started shooting the 22LR as our first hunting rifle before moving up the the 458 Lott and bigger.


So here are the questions:
Is the shortages coming to an end for 22LR anytime soon?
What about the powder shorages for reloading?
Are others seeing the same problems in other countries? (shortages, higher prices, hoarder)

I know that my stash of 22 LR has gone down by about three thousand in the past year, and not from shooting!

Friends and co-workers have been kept shooting despite the lack of retail availability. This is one of the reasons for my stash (which I have maintained at least for the last 10 years, not a recent hoarding phenomenon).

I personally will not resume shooting my usual 2,000 rounds per year until I feel certain that availability is back to more or less normal.

Powder is still very tight in the places I normally check. I have quite a bit...but no Reloader 22 or 25, of which I would buy 8 pounds of each, given the chance!

I do not think this is near over.

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
