Very cool. We can't get any because DHS is buying it all before it hits the shelves...

I have an order in with Brownells for 5000 rounds of .22LR that has been back ordered for a month. I thought that if anything, .22 would be easy to find compared to say .223 or .40 or 9mm.

4 million daily... approximately 20 working days per month... approximately 80,000,000 rounds per month

That is one manufacturer. If Remington, Winchester, et al produce only CCIs daily figure each month, we are looking at over 100,000,000 per month. Since mid December, that would be around 200,000,000+ rounds.

I assume some is exported, but would think that most is sold in US.

Why cant one of the largest retailers in the US - Walmart - get more than 10 boxes of 50 Winchester Super X?

I recall reading that some of the 22lr shortage was due to workers being pulled off those lines to work extra shifts on the other caliber's lines. I am glad I bought 4 boxes of 550 federals long before the panic. Although I did start twitching when I saw 2 boxes on Gunbroker bid up to $305. Cant say the thought didn't cross my mind to sell 2.

Very interesting! Now, if CCI makes 4 million a day, where are they winding up?!?!
4 million a day is 40,000, 100 round boxes. If you just take the Wally worlds that sell ammo that would be 11 boxes per Walmart per day. Factor in 51,000+ gun shops in the U.S. and it doesn't take long to see they can't keep up!

I have this new theory, remember how the Germans used Zyklon-B gas because bullets were just too expensive for "The Final Solution"? Maybe for 8mm Mauser they were, and the large center-fire cartridges were needed at the front.

So, maybe they are going to the Dept of HS, for Obama's "Final Solution" program. I think maybe those pneumatic firing bolts used in slaughter houses would be much cheaper (remember "No Country for Old Men," with Tommy Lee Jones?) They could just leave our .22 rim-fire alone.

Very cool videos, Bill - excellent post.

But to pcolas point... As you point out, Walmart is the largest retailer in the U.S. - Walmart has over 8,000 stores. That would be 80,000 boxes or 4,000,000,000 rounds per delivery. Add in all the other stores trying even harder to get ammo, and you will see that the numbers add up.
