spendy. good ammo though.

IMHO anything above .05 is not hot. Some feel that availability makes this hot, but I disagree. Room temperature, maybe...but not hot. One box limit doesn't help matters any either.

How do I specify ship to store? It doesn't seem to be giving me the option, standard delivery only for $5.95.....

Agree on room temp Dick's and Bass Pro have been semi-regularly getting in bulk packs for $.05-.06 a round, though I haven't seen any at Wally World in NW IL since 2012.

I haven't seen copper jacketed 22lr rounds at that price in a decade. Lead nose ya, and some of the lowest quality ammo, but def not CCI copper jacketed.

Very true Cpt. I am thinking plinking, guess if you need the copper a little hotter.

DOH! Good point. Hey...it's early on a Saturday. Gimme a break. GREEN!

Last 22lr ammo I bought at Dicks in October 2012 was 3 bricks of 525 each on sale for $17 dollars per brick, less a $10 survey coupon. That brought the final price to $0.004 or 4 tenths of a cent each. The next time I see it for 1 cent per round I will consider that hot but for now I think it is just a panic buyer market that will come back down to near it was before.

Your math is way off dude.

3 bricks of 525 = 1575 rounds.
$17 / brick = $51 minus your $10 coupon = $41.00 (not counting any taxes)

$41/1575 rounds = 2.6 cents per round. Not 4/10ths of a cent each.

And yes, 2.6 cents a round is a great price. You would only "consider buying" at 1 cent per round? That would be $5.25 a brick, you realize that right?

Go ahead and hold your breath for that price. It will mean there's less people to buy it up when it reaches normal prices of 2-5 cents a round.

Even if you got a coupon that gave you $10 off per brick, you'd still be paying more than 1 cent per round at $7 per brick. But I know Dick's didn't let you use three $10 coupons in the same purchase.

anything under .09 is decent if it shoots in your gun.

I think that we can revisit the issue of the relationship between availability and hotness when we are all breathing canned air...

I was drinking my coffee this am and decided a box, delivered to my door at a price
of 15 cents each was good. First .22 longs I've purchased in 14-15 months.
