I have been picking one up every morning and my Norton has been catching it.
I thought it was probably from the Marlboro site where I enter contests so I didn't go there this morning so I could see.
I am changing my morning routine until I find the site where I am getting it.

Watch the "low noise Aquila" sometimes the little bullet gets stuck in the barrel.
I tried to use them to shoot blackbirds and had it happen. I didn't see dirt kick up so I checked and sure enough, it was about 15 or 16" down the barrel. Came out easy with a poke with a cleaning rod.
They are OK in a revolver.

Last year I grabbed a box of 22s at Kittery at a very low price, and Italian or Spanish brand - I didn't pay much attention.  I went to the range with my Nylon 66, loaded a round, pulled the trigger and...nothing.  I checked the gun and the case was there, but empty.  I pulled it out and ran a rod down the barrel but it was clear.  I tried it again, and again nothing but an empty case.  I showed one of the other shooters and he actually read the English section of the box.  Well, the rounds were powderless.

In 22's, 1000 was a week end of shooting before I moved to town.
Of course Thunderbolts were only $1.25 a box...
That was just 8 years ago.
The shortage started right after I moved to town.

Example: a friend said he was running low on 22s and he wanted to get some more.  I asked how many he had and he said over 1000.  This guy shoots once every five years or so.
Talking to guys at my club, I hear the same thing about 22s.  People also hoarded brass for reloading.  I'm lucky I have a bunch of 30-40 brass but it seems to be scarce.

The 22's are starting to show up around here also. (Southern Indiana)
None of the reasons that I heard for the shortage made me believe them.
Hording? Who was hording them. 22's weren't getting to the gun shops. It wasn't a middle man trying to keep the price high. There was none to sell.
Ammo factories too busy, all machinery tied up making centerfire ammo?  Centerfire and rimfire not made on the same machines.

I think the Ammo Companies wanted to raise the price so they just stopped making rimfire for about 8 years.

I don't think one will see 22 LR below $4.00 a box anymore except for sales.

Thanks, Fingers. I am on a phone so I can only rely on feedback.
