Cool should you mind pricing a brick of 22lr. I’m sure you can get it for the price you always pay. I’m moving to Montana where pawn shops have better prices than anywhere on the internet.You assume such places exist everywhere. They do not. And even if you do have them, they can't compete on ammo right now with the big box retail sporting goods stores anyway. You will pay A LOT more because their distributors have jacked prices or don't have anything to sell them or those places are going online to buy ammo just like the rest of us and paying those same prices, but then charging a bit more so they make some profit. .
I live in a small town in western Montana. Walmart doesn't sell much ammo anymore, so in my town we have a single pawn shop that does and a regional farm/ranch store. The farm/ranch place has the best prices on guns/ammo and always has since Walmart stopped. The pawn shop wants close to new value for their used guns and carries hardly any ammo. If I go down the road I have one local farm/ranch place that is always the most expensive place to buy guns or ammo, period. I have to go 35 miles to find a real LGS type business.
