    Thanks for the heads up BT.

    Looks like DHS is going to be busy checking numbers on the 22 ammo they are hording because I have not seen Winchester 22's in the stores for months, lol.

    Winnie 22 is available, takes some looking. That said, I have a box bought about two months ago. Not on the recall.

    Not available in Mobile, Al or anywhere on the Gulf coast nor any other type .22 rim-fire. Three months ago, I bought three boxes at a Walmart in Houma and that is the last rim-fire I have found despite a diligent search at every store I enter, in over two years.
    Last night on the Outdoors channel, they featured air rifles, cross-bows, and laser weapons as an alternative to using ammo for practice. Notice there is no shortage of ammo for the weapon that Biden told us was all we needed?

    CCI is the only .22 ammo I can readily locate and pick up out here. Have not seen any Winnie in quite some time....

    What I have noticed is the man killer loads, are the hardest to find. That and .22lr. I can buy all the shot shells I want for small game, but buck-n-ball, slugs, and even sabots are in short supply still. And the only local. 22's I can get are a Mexican brand I never heard of. Printed in Spanish as s well.
    Last decent sized box was the Mexican stuff, and it was 525 bullets for $50.:eek:

    .22 LR is like hens teeth round here.
    It still comes in. But there are campers in the aisle waiting for it to hit the shelf. 3-5 cases go out in minutes. every week like clock work. I happened to wake up early one shipping morning. Got there 2.5 hrs before it was suppose to be stocked.

    Yeah, I should have just set up one of their tents the night before. There were already over 30 peeps waiting in line for their 3 boxes of 333's.

    But I can get shot gun fodder all day long.

    Got lucky, a few weeks ago, and caught Cabelas selling 1000-round boxes of this, online. Cost me ~$64 to have it shipped to my house (otherwise, a 2-hour each way drive to my "local" store). If you have one of those, open it up, and there's two 500-round boxes inside, like what's listed on this recall. You can check the flaps for the lot numbers.

    Luckily for me, mine are good to go. :)

    Speaking of Cabelas, they just bought a big building near where I live and will be opening a "superstore" or whatever sometime this year.
    VERY excited about that (and the Gander Mtn. Firearms Supercenters that are less than an hour away...two of them).
