What are the going prices for .22 lr nowadays?

 

I'm looking to buy a fair amount and the cheapest I can find is $0.07 / round shipped for 40 grain Agulia.

The going price is the price in which they are readily available, hence it is $0.07 per round. 

 

That 40 grain high velocity Aguila is top quality ammo by the way, on par with mini-mags.

Natchez has 5.56 or .223 on sale for $299 minus $20 through today with a $50 mail in rebate.  

 

Not a bad deal especuially considering wheat we've been paying 1-2 years ago.

Perhaps not ammo...but mags....

 

I just happen to stumble on this today and ordered it up...

https://www.ebay.com...353.m2749.l2649

 

A pair of SR22 mags for 35.49 out the door!

Seems these deals have been floating around ebay for a few months...Heck I didnt spot them till today.

I remember when I got my sr22 I grabbed two extra mags for 30+ from GATS (I snarfed em up cuz at the time they were in short supply)

The only other good deal I found was grabagun at $29..but thats with $8 shipping.

 

Just thought I'd mention this here

 

Heck...we can always use extra mags... :)

 

EDIT: Yes..these are genuine Ruger OEM mags.

Midway is currently running 450 rounds of IMI 5.56 62gr M855 for $120 with free shipping. 

 

Anytime I see brass 5.56 for under 30 cents a round shipped, I take note.  

 

https://www.midwayus...azorcore-266013

 

I already have plenty of M855 rounds that I can't fire anyway (indoor range), so I'll pass on this one....but just passing along.

 

Another deal Midway the have is 420 rounds of IMI 5.56 55gr M193 for $126.38, ($0.30 per round) and it includes a metal ammo can.   If you buy $99 worth of items, you can get it shipped free. 

https://www.midwayus...-14-boxes-of-30

 

I don't buy much M193 or M855 anymore, but I do keep a look out for what I call "real" ammo for my AR-15's....mostly 5.56 Frontier 75gr Match BTHP or 5.56 IMI 77gr Match HPBT.   If I can find it for under 55 cents a round shipped, without having to spend more than $100, it is a solid deal. 

 

One "oddball" round that I have in 5.56 is Frontier 55gr Match BTHP.  It can be had for about 45 cents per round shippped........but it seems to have limited use.  I have a few boxes of it, and a 20 round mag loaded with it for my pistol build for home defense.   Too expensive to punch paper, but does not have energy of the 75gr version of it.

Midway is killing me...

 

One day only sale.   

 

5.56 IMI 77gr Match HPBT on sale.   240 rounds for $119.99 with free shipping (since it is over $99).   $0.50 a round shipped is hard to pass up for 77gr rounds.  

https://www.midwayus...-12-boxes-of-20

 

 

While I don't really need $120 in 5.56 ammo that I rarely shoot at the range, I may have to grab some at these prices.
