Haven't played with my 22mag much since 2008, when I was using my 22mag to test the damage potential the FN fiveseven pistol could inflict since the 22mag in a rifle and 5.7x28 fired from a pistol are pretty close to each other. Now selected it to by my test gun for ballistic concrete. So I went and found the oldest 22mag ammo I could find in my stash, which is between 15 and 17 years old and use that first you know to rotate stock. Then realized virtually all my 22mag ammo is from 2008 or earlier. So I go to Walmart and they're sold out I go back again and their sold out. Talk to the sporting goods guy and says the 22mag sells juat as fast as the 22LR. I remember occasionally Walmart would run low on 22LR but always had tons of 22mag back in 2006 to 2008. Now the 22mag is sold out just as much as 22LR. But 22mag was never super popular and as far as I know virtually all the "center fire to 22 conversations" use LR, not Mag. Do people just not understand the difference between 22LR and 22mag? That's the only thing I can think of for a reason as to why it would be sold out all the time.
