I had a good laugh the other day. I ran across an add for target quality 22LR ammo 50 round box. For the life of me I can't remember the supplier name, it was a national well known store chain. Anyway they wanted $16.50 per 50 round box of 22LR.
I can buy 9mm Luger, 50 round box for $10 to $11.
It's a shame that 22's will be obsolete if this continues.
