Default Just bought 23 bricks and bunches more .22 lr Good for 15 yrs



Advertise Here

I struck gold this morning around 0800 when I did my delivery route (yes some of us still have to work) and stopped by 5 Wally World and picked up 23 Federal bricks, 15 100-round Winchester hot loads, 10 50-rd CCI Stingier, and a big case of 1000-rd Winchester high velocity. I normally just shoot bricks ammo but I did just buy a CZ 457 so I figure I pick up some boutique boxes to see if they are better as far as penetration and accuracy. And the boxes are nice enough I can recycle as my ammo carrier to preserve my stash.

Prior to this, I was sitting on 12 Federal bricks and a 3 buckets of the nasty Remington, which I only feed my bolt action and shoot at 75 yards or closer. This is from my stash from 2008 when a brick was 10.99 plus tax.

This ammo run is making me nervous.

A man well trained with a .22 lr rifle getS to keep everything so no bartering is needed or planned for.

On a serious note, the concept of bartering is a pipe dream. People arenít civilized enough to do so.

Hope you all do as well

Hey, if it's cheap enough, buy up. Surprised Walmart hasn't started their stupid limits yet. I just happened to order 8,000 rds maybe a month ago. Still had maybe 12-15 bricks. For your CZ, you need to get some SK stuff. CCI Green Tag at least. My 455 Tacticool really like the SK Plus. About $7 per 50, but those classy girls need classy food.

Thanks for the ammo tip. I guess I need to look up what SK ammo first. $7/50 is much cheaper than Stinger, which is about $8.30. I liked Stinger because the extra battle length past 20 inches can take advantage of the added velocity and several people measured muzzle energy to be 210 ft/lb, noticeably more than the 190 ft/lb from the 16-18 inches barrel. The added velocity and energy also extend the kill range to 500 yards, which is 300 yards further than my current skill.

I canít wait to the next range trip to take it to 200 yards. Unfortunately, most of my shooting nowadays are done via going to peopleís places and they rarely shoot.

One caution with Stinger and other "hyper" ammo. In most cases, you will find them to be less accurate. As to 500 yards with a .22, I think that might be wishful thinking. 250 yards is pushing it, hard. At 500 yards the bullet drop is something like 18 feet. Think aiming at the top half of a medium tree to hit at ground level. There are guys that do it, with $4,000 rifles and lots of gear. Even then hits are few.

I'm jelly of your burst... nice!
Today I finally got the 500 rds that I ordered the week before the Beer flu. Cheap steel case Wolf, but the PTR eats anything. My AR10 gets a little pickier, but the bolt guns don't care either.

7.62x51 is great at enforcing social distancing...

Just hit Wally again, 3 more Federal bricks and 10 boxes of Winchester Extreme. Hitting the range in a few hours and the Ruger is eating good today.

Bartering is alive and well in my town and has been forever. Bales of hay get traded for all kinds of things around here. Cows get traded. Fresh killed deer and hogs. Hogs especially, those are traded several times a week by a guy I know. Lady at work trades eggs for stuff every week.

Around here bartering means cut the grass or clean the yard for beers and cigarettes. Or fix an old truck for one or two days usage of it. Never sustainable as those people rely on welfare, food banks, and other services.

Not 'buying' any ammo currently as I am good on that but I did start checking inventory a few days ago and 'found' an unopened brick of the Federal in 22lr.

Love that stuff! No idea what those even go for now as I have not bought any in years. What did you have to give per brick if you don't mind me asking?

this is not something to talk about in public. Some states can consider you to be dangerous for your purchase and pay you a visit. When the state leaves, you may have no guns nor ammo. Pointing out sales and places to purchase is good. Discussing your purchase may not be so good. You never know who is going to read your post

The people in my area seem to prefer material barter rather than dealing with cash if theyíre not dealing with a commercial business.
