I stopped up at the corner store to see about selling an ar-10 and now they are out of 22lr. They still have some 17hmr and a fair amount of shotgun shells but no other rifle rounds and only 2 boxes of 40cal for handguns.

I know its that away in several stores all over in different states. Good luck with your sell/Ammo purchase.

I have a couple bricks of Winchester and a couple Remmingtons left. I think I can weather this out.

As for the sale, I don't think it will take long. I'm not asking gunbroker prices

One of the guys at the club was talking about reloading 22 rimfires. I said you gotta be kidding me.

Reminds me of the U-Tube video's of making primers from scratch.

Re: @@@Is the Government buying up our Hunting Bullets ?@@@

You don't use a die, you seat the bullet with your fingers or needlenose pliers. It's a straight walled case and the bullet has gas checks (ridges) that keep it in the case.

Take a 22 in one hand and grab the bullet with the other and twist it. It will move and you can actually pull it out.

Problem is, it's rimfire so no primer and spent cases will have deformed case heads. I guess it could be done in a pinch with home cast lead bullets but it seems pretty tedious to me.

Never took one apart and dumped it out, but it can't have but a grain of powder inside,

Reloading 22's is desperation at it's best, sort of like making priners at home.,

I guess for a more ideal take apart a 17 Mach or HMR would be easier to play with. They are rimfire too.
